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.

The 3 key principles at Pippins, which also fall in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage are:

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.

Daily Routine

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.

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.
