Out of School Care

High quality Before School and After School clubs

Parents with girls in Kindergarten or Prep are offered a short late-stay provision for the younger girl while she is waiting for an older sibling further up the school whose school day finishes at a later time. This enables the younger girls to wait safely in school until parents arrive to collect all their children from the school at the same time.

We also offer a late pick-up (4.00pm) for all girls who have young siblings attending local schools.

At Bowdon Prep we understand that it is not always possible for our parents to collect their children at the end of the normal school day.  We are pleased to be able to offer Early Morning Care and After School Care for all girls.

Our main provision is managed and run by 'Activate' who lead a team of enthusiastic school staff. It opens at 7.30am and closes at 6.00pm in the evening.   

We are also able to offer parents an early morning drop-off, which operates on a very flexible basis and is run by school staff. For a small termly charge, parents can register their daughter in school from 8.20am. This is an ideal opportunity for girls to enjoy a fun wake-up session to help them prepare for the day ahead. Girls in Kindergarten and Reception enjoy a creative session, while our older girls engage in more energetic fitness games and activities.

Parents may use child-care vouchers obtained through salary sacrifice schemes to pay for out of school provision.
