Wraparound – Southridge First School
Our wraparound offers full or part time childcare services for ages 3 to 10 years. This can include breakfast, lunch and a light tea. We provide full time care from 8am (or earlier by arrangement) to 6pm, and a ’wrap-around’ service for children in school nursery or school care. The school nursery is opposite wraparound, and shares the same entrance hall. For example, if you just require care from 3.30pm to 6.00pm, we will collect your child from their class (at nursery or school) and take them along to the onsite wraparound provision. Our Wraparound continues to operate from within school premises during all school holidays from 8am to 6pm, and is available to all children, not just those attending Southridge First School.
