Welcome to 3@Cradoc (Acorn Class)
The first step in your child’s education is an important time for both you and your child.
3@Cradoc provides a unique playgroup experience that aims to provide a high standard of care and education. 3@Cradoc is linked with the Early Years Department at Cradoc School and we work together to ease the transition between Playgroup and School. It is run under the management of Cradoc Primary School and registered and monitored by the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW).
3@Cradoc has planned activities in accordance with the Foundation Phase Framework. Sessions are conducted in English with Welsh language development encouraged in all activities.
We place great emphasis, especially in the Early Years, on developing every child’s social and emotional skills. We are very proud that this work has been identified as an “area of sector-leading practice” by Estyn during 2013.
From 5th April 2016 we extended our hours and are now open from 9 am to 3.30 pm, Monday to Friday during term time. Children aged from 3 to 4 are welcome.
This means that working with CoolKids@Cradoc, your child can receive wrap-around care from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, 49 weeks of the year.
Please contact the school on 01874 622555 for more details.
For more details, please take a look at our Parent Handbook attached.
However, we would more than welcome a visit from you, to see how much the children enjoy their time at 3@Cradoc and how quickly they learn.
