The Governors of Beaufront First School propose establishing an Early Years Unit and an Out of Hours Care programme at Beaufront, commencing in September 2018. In broad terms, the proposal would include:
(1) Nursery provision, with the addition of a "pre-school" year for children in the school year prior to Reception.
(2) Wraparound care from 8am until 6pm, including breakfast pre-school, a post-school snack and a programme of activities.

Present, past and prospective Beaufront parents are invited to complete this survey. We would be very grateful if you would complete this survey by Monday 2 October so that we can establish both whether there is a demand for such provisions and the impact of such provisions to the sustainability of the school. We would be glad to hear any comments that you may have and will treat these as confidential, as you wish.
 
Please pass this survey on to any past or prospective parents.
 
If you have any queries, we would be happy to answer them. Please direct any queries to Flora Littler at floramcerlane@googlemail.com or Liz Giuliani at elizabethjanehodgson@hotmail.com
