Ladybirds & Crèche
We operate a before and after school care facility for Pre-Prep and Early Years pupils. There is a charge for this and places are strictly limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis, although priority will be given to children of Pinewood staff, those with Prep school siblings and those with 2 working parents.
Pinewood Crèche is an option at the beginning of the school day for children in the Pre-Prep and Early Years. The service is offered on an ad hoc basis, except for Early Years children, who must be pre-booked through the Pre-Prep Office. The Crèche is held in the Pre-Prep Library and the children are offered quiet, unstructured activities, such as drawing materials, reading and picture books and a story, whilst they wait for school to start. School or home reading books may be brought to Crèche, but toys may not. The children are accompanied to the Nursery and classrooms when the school opens at 8.10am.

Ladybirds is an optional extension to the end of the school day offered to children who have siblings in the Prep school and to those children who have working parents and no alternative childcare. Any remaining places will be made available to other pupils. Places must be booked by the end of the previous term and are not available on an ad hoc basis. Children who stay for Ladybirds will be given a drink and a biscuit or light snack (depending on how late they are staying). As with the Crèche they will be offered unstructured activities, so that they can relax at the end of what will have been a busy and tiring day for the children.
