If your child attends Little Hedgehogs Pre-school, we are pleased to be able to offer a hot lunch at a cost of £2.20. Meals are cooked on site by Principal Catering Ltd and must be paid for in advance or on the day, either in cash, by cheque or online (see the office for further information).  A menu is available on the school website in the Parent Information section.  All of the Little Hedgehogs will eat their lunch, including packed lunches, in the hall with the staff.


Extended Day

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer an extended day for our Little Hedgehogs.  Both Early Birds and Night Owls take place in the school hall and initially, a section of the room will be partitioned for the younger children.  Miss Clark will supervise the pre-school children with Mrs Griffiths and Mr Thomas helping.  Breakfast consists of cereal, toast (with a selection of spreads), fresh fruit, yoghurts, a drink and on some days other choices such as wraps and a snack is provided at Night Owls.

Early Birds is open from 7.45pm and at 8.40pm the pre-school children will be taken over to their classroom.  Night Owls is open until 5.30pm.  The current cost for the Early Birds and Night Owls is £4.00 and £7.50 respectively and the same rates apply to pre-school children.  Places must be booked in advance through the office.


Invoicing and Payments

Invoices for Little Hedgehog sessions, lunch sessions and bookings for Early Birds and Night Owls are sent home during the first two weeks of each term.  Payments can be made by cash, cheque payable to Sheldwich Primary School or online via the School Shop on Parentmail PMX.  If you would like further information about registering on Parentmail PMX, please speak to the office.  We also accept Childcare Vouchers and the school is registered with most providers.
