Invitation 2 Play offers both full day care and funded nursery education to all children aged from 3 to 5 years. Our nursery has close links to local schools which allows us to ensure children are ready for school when they leave us.
We do offer the same education under the Early Years Foundation Stage as other providers and on a staff ratio of 1 to 8. However, we do understand that some parents wish to use a local school nursery or pre-school and we can help support this choice by offering Wraparound Care.
What is Wraparound Care?
‘Wraparound care’ is childcare that wraps around a child’s Nursery Education, this is the 15 hours funded by Government each week which every 3 and 4 year old is entitled to. It is offered before or after the funded sessions and allows parents and carers to extend their children’s hours to attend work for example, knowing their child is able to be cared for safely.
We offer our own ‘Wraparound Care’ service for all children attending our nursery with their funded hours and who are taking additional childcare for any day.
We are currently able to offer drop off and collection for local nursery schools such as Firs Road Primary School and Wellfield Infant School and will be happy to talk through with you your choices and our costs for the wraparound care, collection/drop off. Our Nursery Manager will be able to help you with this.
