Before & After Pre-school Care
Wraparound Care Offering
Hedgehog Club is the name of Egerton Pre-schools wraparound care, which includes before and after pre-school care and holiday club. Hedgehog Club is open between 7.45 am and 9 am and 3 pm to 5 pm Monday to Friday (if demand is sufficient). It is accessible to all children once they have turned 3 years old and are ready for a long day at our busy pre-school.
Hedgehog Club is play-based and children will be free to choose a selection of resources as they wish. Examples of activities include:
- Tabletop games
- ICT (Information and Community Technology)
There will also be visits around Knutsford to the local shops, cafés and library as well as the park. The ratio for outings is 2 adults to 4 children and staff hold children’s hands while walking to and from venues. A risk assessment will be completed prior to taking the children on outings, which will be available in the foyer for parents to read.
