Wraparound Care

Welcome to Wraparound Care.

Little Acorns Wraparound Care sessions are full of fun and games and the children enjoy exploring our indoor area and outdoor area. The Wraparound Care sessions are the perfect compliment to extend your children’s day after they have been to the school nursery class. Our session runs from 11:30am – 3pm, Monday to Friday during normal school term times. Children in these sessions are aged 3 -4 years.

Starting With Wraparound Care

Upon arrival your child will be welcomed and made to feel relaxed. They will be given the opportunity to partake in a wide range of activities from crafts, reading and board games to outdoor activities (Weather permitting). Our aim is to create a ‘Home from Home’ environment where your child will feel safe, relaxed and happy.

Our staff collect your child/ren from the school Nursery class where they come back to our own building for the afternoon. We also welcome children who attend our Playgroup | Early Entitlement session and are aged over 3 years.

What To Bring

Children will remain in their uniform/own clothes after their morning in the Nursery class or in our Playgroup | Early Entitlement session. We ask that parents/carers provide a change of clothes in case of accident or having too much fun and getting messy. Please continually top up spare clothes in your children’s bags where possible. Spare clothes should remain in their bags until a time where they are needed.

NAME LABELS – Please clearly label any items that you provide so that we can help towards the frustration of lost property and not getting things returned to their correct owner.

We would like to take this opportunity to ask if you could refrain from bringing toys and personal belongings into any of our sessions. We understand at times that children can become attached to toys on their journey to our setting but as you can imagine these can sometimes cause conflict when other children wish to look at them or show an interest. If these items do get to Little Acorns we are unable to take any responsibility of loss or damage.

In wet and cold weather please provide hats and gloves and a waterproof coat so that your child can still enjoy the experience of being outside in the colder months. Please make sure this is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

In warmer weather please apply sun cream at home before your child comes to school and make sure your child has a hat where possible and a water bottle, the children have access to drinking water throughout the day.

If your child has regular medication then please make sure that you talk it through with the Childcare Lead so that the appropriate medical form can be completed.


As your child/ren will be with us over the lunch period, there are two options for food:
  1. PACKED LUNCHES – Children are welcome to bring packed lunches but please make sure these contain a healthy variety of foods. Items such as chocolate, sweets and crisps should be actively avoided. Children attending our Playgroup | Early Entitlement sessions much bring a packed lunch – children who attend the school Nursery class have the option of school dinners (see below). We ask that no nuts are provided in lunch boxes at any time and also we ask that foods such as grapes and cocktail sausage are sliced vertically so as to prevent a choking hazard.

  2. SCHOOL DINNERS (For children in the school nursery class only) – School dinners are served in accordance with the School menu on a 3 weekly rotation and in accordance with the Flintshire healthy school meals programme. Parents can select the children’s meal in advance via the School Gateway App or the Children will be asked to make their choice each morning in the School Nursery session from the daily options. Lunch is eaten either in the Kinnerton Little Acorns building or in the main school hall. Please email the school for prices and check the Newydd Facebook page for menu updates.


Little Acorns Wraparound Care operates during term time only (in line with Ysgol Derwen).

It is our policy to offer every session in full until 3pm.

All children will be collected from the end of their Nursery class in the school at 11:30am.

We plan activities and experiences for your child to attend every day that she/he is scheduled. If your child is going to absent, please contact us via Seesaw, our mobile phone or email on office@kinnertonlittleacorns.co.uk to report their absence.

Aims of our attendance policy

  • To encourage regular attendance.
  • For each child to attend the session until 3pm with pick up by a responsible adult known to our staff
  • To work together with parents in order to plan attendance;

We will expect our parents/carers to:

  • Provide up to date contact numbers and changes of address
  • Notify Little Acorns Wraparound Care when their child is unable to attend, by 9.30am on the first day of the absence
  • In cases of lengthy absence, inform the team of child’s expected return date
