Cedar Corner

Page updated - 31 August 2010




Do you have difficulty finding good child-minders after school or in the holidays?  If so, then Cedar Corner in Wells Hall Road may be the answer to your problems. It is run by Wells Hall Primary School and is suitable for children aged between 3 and 11 years. It can accommodate up to 20 children and all places are booked in advance on the preceding Friday but they can take on the day bookings if they are not full. All staff are fully qualified to Level 2 or Level 3, have first aid, safeguarding and CRB checks.


Children with Special Needs can be accommodated; there is a disabled toilet, shower, etc. If children need one-to-one supervision this is usually funded from Activities Unlimited and staff are drawn from their existing carers. Cedar Corner staff always take emergency contact details for each child, whether they have allergies and also ask for the right to call for medical care in case of emergencies.


The After School Club runs between 3.00pm & 6.00pm every school day; staff working there also work as teaching assistants at Wells Hall School. There are many activities including cooking, games and colouring. There is access to a computer and a Wii is available for the children.


For the whole session including a snack at 3.30pm and dinner at 5.00pm the cost is 7.50 or 3 an hour if you do not want your child to stay for the whole time. These sessions are really popular with children as Cedar Corner is a brand new purpose built environment and has all new equipment and facilities. It is cosy, comfortable and welcoming.


The Holiday Club runs during all school holidays from Monday to Friday between 8am & 6pm, costs 25 per day which includes breakfast, lunch and tea. The cost is 15 for a half-day 8am to 1pm or 1pm to 6pm. The Holiday Club runs during Christmas, Easter & summer holidays although the school is not open on the bank holidays and closes for a week over Christmas.
