The Yellow Bus Club

At Aston Pierpoint we also offer Before and After School Care, as well as Holiday Care, for children in Reception to Year 4.

Known as the Yellow Bus Club and subsidised by the nursery, it is exclusively for older siblings of children currently attending the nursery and also former children of the nursery whom attended the nursery for the qualifying period.

It enables children who have attended the nursery, but then go onto different schools, to still spend time together in a play focused environment.

School Transition

For your child’s first term in Reception at school, you have the option for them to attend the nursery for Before and/or After School Care to help with the transition to school. Many parents continue to request this each year and so we make this option always available. Alternatively, should you wish for your child to start at the Before and After School Club immediately from September that is an option too – the fees are the same for both options.

For your child

A range of activities and play equipment all different from, but complementary to the school curriculum.

The opportunity to socialise and play with other school age children.

Safety and security with care provided by experienced, trained and qualified staff.

Our staff

Our club is run by Qualified Childcare practitioners who ensure the children in our care receive the very best of everything. We adhere to strict OFSTED guidelines regarding staff to child ratios. We operate on a ratio of between 1 member of staff for every 6-8 children, which allows us to offer a better quality of care and supervision for the children.

Nutrition

We believe in providing a nutritional breakfast and afternoon snack and tea. This is included in the cost of before and after school care.

Activities

We try to provide all children with a stimulating and fun environment in which they have the opportunity to choose how they wish to spend their time. We include outdoor sports, arts and crafts, homework support, quiet area and entertainment activities. On any given day, the children have the choice to to take part in stimulating activities or enjoy a more relaxed afternoon.
