Wraparound was opened in September 2003 and is now a well-established and recognised part of Dane Royd School. 

Wraparound offers childcare before and after our nursery sessions for three and four year olds on payment of a fee.  We believe we offer every child continuity of care, which in turn promotes and enhances their individual development and learning. 

During the sessions the children are provided with play opportunities, which reflect the needs and interests of the children attending.  Activities include arts and crafts, construction, baking, junk modelling, physical play, and the opportunity to be involved in many celebrations and traditions throughout the year.  Healthy snacks and drinks are provided during the session.

Further details including fees, lunchtime arrangements, registration and setting up a Magic Bookings account can be obtained by contacting Mrs Beddard on 01924 242917 or by e-mailing  We look forward to meeting you and your children!
