St. Matthew’s prides itself on being as flexible as possible around our parents and allowing them the freedom to continue to work while their child is with us for many great years. We operate a wrap around care from 7:30 am – 8:30 am and 3:00 pm – 6 pm (5:00 pm on Fridays.) and we hope to be able to accommodate most places that are requested. Please contact the school office and we’ll be happy to check the diary for any free spaces.
