Holiday Cover

Some of our families wonder what they will do for childcare over the holidays. It is possible to mix private nursery and preschool attendance to get the best of both worlds and increase nursery days during the holidays. However, if you don’t currently use a private nursery or prefer not to use both settings in tandem, the following will be of interest!

The Spinney Day Nursery is a family run, independent setting which puts the children and their families at the heart of their business.  Mickle Trafford Preschool is delighted to be working with them to help support our parents/guardians with options for holiday cover/clubs and after Preschool services.

For School Age Children:

At the end of the day the children are returned to the Hoole Nursery for a 5.30pm pick up.   Alternatively, parents can collect at Bell Meadow for a half day or at the end of the day anytime up to 6.30pm.

A full day at Holiday Club is £36.00 or a half day £22.50.

The full day includes:

  • a morning snack, 2-course cooked dinner and a 2-course tea with fruit
  • games
  • craft
  • drama and other activities that help develop social skills.

Computers are not used in the After School and Holiday Club as we believe the children should interact with other children.

Each week during normal times, at Holiday Club, the children are taken off site to the beach, the forest or a Nature Centre where the children have challenges and take part in group activities. This is usually on a Wednesday, and we call it ‘The Spinney Adventures’. This is led by the owners’ daughter, Rhiannon who is Forest School trained.

We recommend getting in touch as soon as possible to secure a place on the days/weeks you need.
