October half-term 2017
We will be offering child care during the October holidays from Monday 23rd October until Friday 27th October 2017. Please contact the office for a booking form, if you wish to reserve a place for your child.
We offer excellent quality childcare for children aged from 3 months old to eleven years. If you are interested in arranging childcare for your child, please get in touch with Claire- our Admissions, Attendance and Welfare assistant- who will be happy to help.
From 1st September 2017, if you have a child aged between 3 and 4 years old, you may be eligible to claim 30 hours of free childcare per week. The City of London and Sir John Cass’s Foundation primary school already offer additional childcare from the term of your child’s 4th birthday so these changes will have a limited effect in our setting.
