Early Morning Club

Primarily to support working parents there is an Early Morning Club that runs at all 3 sites from 8.00–8.30am for which there is an additional charge of £3 per day. It is usually possible to book an 'ad-hoc' place although prior notification is required for this. Please contact Mrs Marchant (admin@altprep.co.uk) in the school office to book a place.

There are a limited number of places available at the Pre-Prep sites, Bank Place and Highbury. Early Morning Club at Marlborough Road is for Years 3 - 6 only. Care at Bank Place and Highbury is supervised by Teaching Assistants and by the Duty teacher at Marlborough Road.

There is also the option of Early Drop Off between 8.30 – 8.45am. For health and safety reasons, Parents wishing to drop their son off during this time slot should email Mrs Marchant. Due to space constraints there is a restriction on the number of boys attending at Highbury and Bank Place.

Introduction and Welcome from Kids Collective:

Operating since 2003, Kids Collective/School's Out is an experienced provider of excellent out-of-school childcare, with Before & After School Clubs at 7 primary schools in the Altrincham, Bowdon and Timperley area, as well as popular Holiday Clubs in Timperley and at Bowdon Church School, already attended by some boys from APS.

Kids Collective is part of the local Elmscot Ltd group of childcare settings which includes Elmscot Day Nursery and Woodlands Day Nursery, both in Timperley, and as some boys at APS have attended one of their nurseries this offers additional continuity of care. Elmscot Ltd is owned and run by two local mothers whose children also attend School's Out settings. All settings are Ofsted registered and offer outstanding quality childcare. School's Out has attained the NDNA Quality Counts accreditation (part of Investors in Children), and was the first in Trafford to receive the new Healthy Club Award (part of the national Healthy Schools Scheme).
