Poplars Group (Pre-School, Club & Holiday Club)
Registered Charity 1027328
Poplars Group provides a safe developmentally appropriate environment for pre-school and school aged children. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience which promotes each child’s holistic development. Our goal is to support children and provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. The Group operates from within the premises of Water Leys Primary School.
At Poplars Pre-School we aim to provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age, work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop, add to the life and well-being of the local community, and offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.
We are open 38 weeks of the year in line with Water Leys Primary School opening times. We provide care and education for young children from 2 years to 4 years of age. Our Butterfly room is for children who will be starting school the following academic year and the Caterpillar room is for the children who are 2-3 years of age. Both rooms are open 5 days a week, with sessional and all day care available.
Poplars After School Club
Poplars Club is an officially registered out of school club providing an after school childcare service to children who attend Water Leys Primary school. We are registered for children aged 2 to 11 years. We have two separate rooms, one for the pre-school, Foundation Stage and Year One children and the other for children in school Years 2-6. We regard children as individuals and encourage them to make their own choices of play. We then assist to enhance the play experience and help them to get more from it. Our mission is to provide a safe, secure and familiar place to play in whilst enabling parents to work out of school hours.
Poplars Holiday Club
Throughout the school holidays we provide a fun packed holiday club offering a choice of all day care or workshops. Look out for details in your child’s red book bag and on the school website.
