Ashlands Primary School

"Every child has the right to shine"

Early Years Holiday Club for Nursery & Reception

At Holiday Club the children are encouraged to play outside whatever the weather and in the warmer months they are able to use the field for play, outdoor learning and picnics. We have a wonderful outdoor classroom and garden where the children get involved in planting fruit and vegetables, pond dipping and spotting our regular bird, insect and butterfly visitors. We even have our very own beehives!

If you are a non Ashlands family and wish to book, please contact the school office.


9.00am – 3.30 pm = £40

9.00am – 1.00pm = £20

8.00am – 5.15pm = £50

How to Book a place

Please select whether booking for a full or half day.

If you wish to pay using childcare vouchers, the Tax-Free Childcare System or have surplus 30 hours funding (nursery children) please contact the school office to discuss and book.

If you use the extended option, either before or after school or both we will add an extra charge of £10 retrospectively when we return to school in January.
