Our welcoming Breakfast Club provides a healthy start to the day, whereas the busy After School facility provides a light tea, homework supervision (Upper Prep), and a variety of age appropriate activities and games.
Wrap Around Care is designed to provide a helping hand for busy parents by caring for children for a period before the School day begins and up until 18:00 after School, and is available to all children attending both Fairfield and Amherst Prep Schools.
The service is complementary in the Kindergarten with daily fees applying for older children, payable at the end of term. Places are pre-registered in advance, with Registration Forms available from the School Office or directly from Mrs Willingham.
