Wrap-around Care

      Rydal Penrhos Prep School offers a wide range of pre, after and holiday care for pupils throughout the year.

      Before and After school care

      During term time the school is open from 8am for parents who wish to drop their child off a little bit earlier ahead of the scheduled start time of 8.30am.There is also an after school service that is open until 6pm.

      The Nursery department is the setting for pupils in Nursery-Year 2, while a number of rooms in the Prep School are used for the other year groups.

      There is no charge for this service, although an afternoon tea is provided if required, which consists of sandwiches, fruit, cake and a drink, which comes at a small cost.

      Holiday Play Scheme

      The holiday play scheme is open during the school holidays closing only for a few days over the Christmas holiday. It provides an extensive programme of activities which the children can experience, and helps assist them with their emotional, physical, social, intellectual, language and creative development. But of course, they don’t realise all this: for them it is just good fun!

      We vary the activities throughout the day to retain your child’s interest. Outdoor play and sports activities are included most days. Local outings are arranged on a regular basis and most weeks we have the use of the school swimming pool for a session.

      The play scheme is open for all Rydal Penrhos Preparatory pupils from the Nursery department through to Year 6.
