At Watson's we offer a number of out-of-hours care options for before and after school hours.
For Preschool children, a Breakfast Club and after-nursery care is provided by Nursery Plus, a flexible service that allows parents to choose the care sessions they need, to complement the time provided by the Nursery.
The Nursery Breakfast Club operates from 7.45am until the start of the school day.
Nursery Plus is available in two sessions, one from 3pm until 4.15pm and a second from 4.15pm until 6pm.
The Junior School operates a Breakfast Club. The Breakfast Club operates on normal school days during term time and is open to pupils from Primary 1 to Primary 7.
The Breakfast Club is based in the Junior School Dining Hall. Unlike the After School Club, there are no organised activities on offer, but children have the opportunity to relax before school by playing games, reading books and drawing.
The Breakfast Club opens at 7.45am and the pupils attending are released from 8.30am onwards to the classrooms. Breakfast is provided for all pupils attending and consists of cereal, toast, fruit juice and milk.
After School Club
Children in Primary 1 to Primary 7 are catered for by our very popular After School Club, which provides a happy, caring environment from its base at the heart of the campus. The Club operates on normal school days during term time from the end of the school day until 6pm.
Lower Primary children are based mainly in the Lower Primary Hall, where they have direct access to a large enclosed garden and play area. Primary 4 to Primary 7 are based in New Myreside House, which is on the campus adjacent to the Upper Primary building. They also have direct access to outdoor play facilities.
The children take part in a wide variety of activities ranging from sport, craft and swimming to cookery, board games and quiet reading. Free play is also encouraged for Lower Primary children and there is an opportunity for pupils in the Upper Primary Club to do their homework under supervision. A light snack of juice and biscuits is available daily for the children.
After School in the Senior School
Although there is no after school care facility for Senior School pupils, our extensive extra-curricular provision means that pupils can stay on at school to participate in a wide range of activities after the close of lessons.
