Do you offer wraparound provision?

We are pleased to offer wraparound provision as an offer for families. We know that this flexibility is important and endeavour to make Nursery & Preschool work for you.

You can see our session timings above. 

What will my child's day at Nursery and Preschool involve?

We plan our day carefully to incorporate the very best learning experiences for your child with a balance of child-led independent activities and adult guided activities.

Throughout the day, your child will have access to a wide range of indoor and outdoor experiences that both harness and nurture their interests.

As your child plays, they are continually learning and developing. Our curriculum is language-rich with inspiring stories and nursery rhymes underpinning their learning. We love stories and want to help your child become story-lovers, too!

What are the arrangements for lunch at Nursery and Preschool?

The lunch period is between 12-12.30pm. Any children who are attending an afternoon or all-day session are able to have lunch in the Nursery and Preschool.

Families have two options for lunch meals:

  • provide a packed lunch for their child
  • choose a hot meal for their child as an optional extra at an additional charge of £1.50 per hot meal

We are currently completing our procurement process for the catering at Matford Brook Academy and look forward to updating this page with information about the successful company very soon. Suffice to say that food is an important part of every child's day and the available hot meals will be nutritious, tasty and introduce children to a range of different foods!
