Extended Care in FS1
At GEMS Wellington Academy - Al Khail, we understand that having access to high quality childcare, beyond the school day, is important. We therefore offer an exciting and engaging extended childcare programme that aims to build on key skills that form the foundations of child development and provide parents with a convenient alternative childcare option.
Our programme runs from 12:30pm until 2:40pm Monday to Thursday. It is completely free of charge and is available for all FS1 children. We do not offer extended care on Thursdays as all children across the school finish early.
Across the week, our qualified and experienced Foundation Stage staff plan activities around the following themes:
- Messy Mondays
- Technical Tuesdays
- Wiggle Wednesdays
Children also have the opportunity to take part in child-centered play throughout the afternoon and there are opportunities for ‘nap time’ if parents request this. Parents should provide children with a healthy snack for each session.
