Wrap Around Care and Holiday Club

The Willows breakfast and after school club has suffered financially throughout the Covid lockdowns and school closures over the last 18 months.  Despite the efforts of many of our families who were able to keep their accounts in credit to help with our cash flow, the schools have sadly still accumulated a large amount of debt which needs to be recovered as soon as possible.

Due to the heavy workload involved in managing a breakfast and after school club in a separate building and ensuring it remains compliant and runs smoothly, Emmbrook Infant & Junior Schools have made the decision to outsource the provision to Funtastic Kids from 1st November 2021.

Funtastic Kids have been running our holiday camps for several years now, so we are confident that this transition will be as smooth as possible.  Louise Holloway, who runs Funtastic Kids, has provided information about their breakfast and after school clubs, which you will find attached.

All children who currently attend breakfast and after school club are guaranteed to keep their places in their current sessions with Funtastic Kids from 1st November.  Parents/carers whose children currently attend breakfast and after school club will be sent a separate email with details of how to register/book places with Funtastic Kids next week.

Thank you for your continued support.
