Our vision is to create a home from home for children to develop resilience, independence, confidence and self-worth, in an environment that is not only calm and nurturing, but is also challenging and inspiring, respecting and cherishing each child's individuality. Providing opportunities for the children to experience awe and wonder about the world around them. Working closely together with families is at the heart of our Pippins community and everything we do.
Bramleys Out of School Club
Bramleys is an out of school service for children from pre-school age up until twelve.
We open from 8am until 5:30pm, with older children being taken and collected from the local schools using our own minibus.
We believe that care at Bramleys is continuing and supporting each child’s learning and development.
We have strong connections with the local schools and provide activities that continue their school learning as well as being grounded in the world around them.
Bramleys is also open on school closure days by arrangement and runs a holiday club during the summer holidays.
Pippins and Bramleys provide full wrap around care between 8am and 5:30pm for both pre-school and school-aged children.
We ask parents to respect our pick up/drop off times listed below to allow children to settle and focus and staff to provide quality care.
|8:00am||Bramleys Breakfast club drop off|
|8:45am||Bramleys attendees transported to school via minibus or member of staff; Pippins children remain on site.|
|9:00am||Pippins morning session starts|
|12:00pm||Doors open for drop off/pick up|
|3:00pm||Pippins afternoon session ends and Bramley’s starts|
|5:00pm||Doors open for pick up|
|5:30pm||End of Bramleys session|
Throughout the day, staff will support and guide your child during individual or small group play.
Children have access to the garden at all times whatever the weather.
The out of school club also regularly makes use of the woodland grounds of Gravenhurst Academy and their nature trail.
