Clapton Park is a combined Early Years and Children’s Centre. It caters for children aged between 0 and five years old and our Early Years takes children from three months. The Centre also has a Sessional Care room which offers morning sessions for 2-3 year olds and afternoon sessions for 3-5 year olds.
The Centre offers a range of drop-in sessions alongside support and signposting to parents.
The Centre is open from 7.45am till 5.45pm, Monday to Friday, 48 weeks of the year except for Bank Holidays. You will however be given contract hours when you come for interview. You will be expected to keep within these hours unless prior arrangements are agreed. Sessional Care is term time only. You will be notified of term dates in advance, alongside closures. We open at 9am on the first and third Wednesday of every month to support staff development, staff team meetings, workshops and training.
The centre was judges as good in the recent Ofsted Inspection in April 2016.
Ofsted says - "Staff know the children exceptionally well. They provide children with high levels of emotional security. Children are extremely confident and self-assured in their learning."
"Children's all-round learning is enhanced through the provision of the forest school. For example, children take great delight in exploring and discovering nature."
