Out of School

Due to the coronavirus restrictions we are currently limiting the numbers of children we care for in each of our settings each day. 

We are putting other extra measures in place to try to protect staff, children and families as much as possible. 

Please help us by keeping your child at home if they or anyone in your household show ANY of the symptoms of this virus (follow the government guidance).

If we are unable to provide childcare due to staff sickness/ isolation or other reasons beyond our control we will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible. 

We may use alternative or additional premises where appropriate to allow more children to attend.



We are registered with OFSTED for children aged from 4 years upwards.

We operate our Out Of School facilities at Downview School on Wroxham Way in Felpham.
