After Care

The name for our After Care, “LITTLE ACORNS”, was chosen as the main school’s badge bears the symbol of the oak tree. And so our “little acorns” will grow, develop and blossom into senior “oak trees” in the school from the nurturing and solid foundation laid in these earlier years. Little Acorns is run independently of both Northlands Primary and Fairway on Northlands Pre Primary. It is a facility that provides a safe and caring environment under the supervision and guidance of professional staff who dedicate themselves to providing and ensuring the well-being of all the children. Little Acorns has three different sections, each one having its own staff and catering specifically for the needs of the children in each group, namely: (a) Pre Primary/Gr R (b) Grade 1 (c) Grade 2 All three sections follow a structured and varied daily programme. There are two sessions that operate throughout the year. These are :- (i) Sunshine session 12h00 – 14h30 (ii) Rainbow session 12h00 – 17h00 Parents can thus choose which session they would prefer for their child although it is strongly recommended that you consider the Rainbow session as your choice so that the child can benefit from the full service on offer. 

Please note: – All children, irrespective of their session, will receive a meal at lunch time. The children in the Rainbow session will also receive juice & biscuits at 15h00 (all included in the fee); – After Care fees do NOT include holiday care – a separate holiday care service will be provided depending on sufficient demand and the numbers involved; – Members of the Little Acorns staff will run the holiday care and information regarding the programmes will be sent home timeously before the end of each school term; – All fees for Little Acorns are payable strictly in advance – continued non-payment will result in your child’s membership being terminated; – Little Acorns reserves the right to accept or deny enrolment for any child and expects that the conduct and behaviour of the child is of an acceptable standard at all times. Failure to comply with the above may lead to the child losing his/her place with immediate effect. Our aim at Little Acorns is to provide an after care facility on the school premises where the needs of all children will be met in an environment where all members feel comfortable, and where fun and enjoyment is paramount.
