Aftercare Programme at the Prep

We run a popular Aftercare facility to care for our learners after school hours.

Management and Ethos

Our Aftercare team aims to provide a “home from home” environment of nurturing and safety, where children are encouraged to learn and develop valuable life skills, e.g. socializing, communicating effectively and co-operating with others.
