We offer wrap-a-round care during term time 7:30am until 6:00pm. We are based in the Carr Den to the rear of the Junior School next to the swimming pool. If you have any queries or wish to visit us to have a look around, please contact us on: 07547139565, or email:

The Carr Den offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere. At the Carr Den we believe that every child is unique in character, interests, abilities, and needs, and through feedback we aim to offer every child activities that they enjoy.

Based in a safe, inviting environment, sessions are tailored to the children, allowing them to follow their own interests whilst encouraging learning through play in a fun, stimulating way.
