About Us


The wrap around school provision is now run as part of Shamblehurst Primary School and all staff are employed by the school in order to ensure continuity of care and to maintain good communication links.

At The Nest wrap around care we aim to provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, offering a range of activities to reflect the interests of the children in our care.

About The Nest

The Nest wrap around care is based at Shamblehurst Primary School and is registered under the school with Ofsted (Registration No: 115972). We are open from 7:30 am to 8:40 am and 3:05 pm to 17:45 pm weekdays during term time.

We are based at Shamblehurst Primary School every day. The school has large external play areas and extensive grounds in which to play including a Muga.

What we offer

Children are free to choose activities and resources as they wish. During the week there will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including dressing up, home corner, crafts, board games, construction, physical play, reading and homework club.

What we provide

The food we provide at the club is not intended as a substitute for a main evening meal. We will provide healthy snacks including fresh fruit and vegetables, whilst also taking into account any specific dietary needs due to medical conditions.

We promote independence, by encouraging the children to prepare their own snacks, and to clear away after themselves. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting and allow children to decide when they are ready to eat (within an agreed time slot), but request that food be consumed whilst sitting at a table.


Our club is staffed by a Play Leader, and a number of play workers.  We aim to provide a smooth transition between school and The Nest, and your child will be collected/delivered to their class by the staff at the end of the breakfast session and beginning of the after school session. In the event of your child attending a school based club or activity prior to attending The Nest, they will be collected from the activity by a member of The Nest staff.

All of our staff have significant experience of working with children and undertake professional development training. All staff members are DBS checked and are subject to safeguarding and prevent training in line with Ofsted requirements. We maintain staff ratios in line with current Ofsted requirements.

Wrap around care provision is run as part of Shamblehurst Primary School and all staff are employed by the school in order to ensure continuity of care and to maintain good communication links.

The school will check bookings to ensure the sibling code is being used correctly.

If you pay by childcare vouchers, you will be able to book online, however you will need to advise the office that you have made a payment through your voucher company and if the payment is to be split between siblings.   The admin team will track the payment coming into the school and action the credit to your Scopay account once received.
