Breakfast club and afterschool care


As a result of piloting a successful breakfast and afterschool provision for children who attend Long Preston Pre-school & Primary School. We are delighted to continue this service in September. There will be little change, other than the location of the provision. Parents are asked to drop off and pick up using Little Learners Centre entrance. Resulting in a ‘one stop shop’ for families to use as wrap around care regardless of the age(s) of your child(ren). This decision is as a result of piloting the service over the past term, and responding to feedback from parents and children. As a result we are able to offer planned activities in a large open space which is suitable for all ages.
To offer a safe, stimulating and friendly environment under the supervision of qualified staff.
In accordance with the school’s healthy eating ethos, to provide a nutritious breakfast & afternoon fruit snack served in a relaxed and supervised environment. 
To enhance the community spirit and contribute towards the extended school role.
