Curating Cultural Capital

Annual Curriculum

Our educational programme in Weekend childcare programme maintains our intercultural focus. We still look into human geography: cultures, regions, mythologies and histories to build on children's knowledge of the wider world. We also want them to learn about the peoples and cultures within it, to reinforce their knowledge of and respect for global citizenship.

However, our real focus here is on building on their linguistic capability in second language learning and so focus on songs, rhymes and conversational fluency development to scaffold their linguistic knowledge over the 3-year groups we care for...

Weekend Childcare & Education

Our Age Groups & Activities

Being a working parent is tough - finding the time to stay on top of your career, your friends, your family and yourself is becoming increasingly difficult, something that Pew Research confirmed in their survey of parenting attitudes in 2020. You need more time in an era where there is less time, and if that is to be carved out, we all need more support.

Our Saturday childcare intends to provide parents with the time and space they need to focus on themselves, whilst we focus on and educate the children. We take children from 3 through to 10 years of age on Saturday and Sunday mornings and provide them with language enrichment classes in Spanish or Mandarin, and fun, engaging educational programmes that reinforce the literacy, numeracy and arts programmes delivered in school across the working week. We want these weekend experiences to be deliver second language learning for our children - a skill set that will put them in good stead in their futures and work towards delivering examination grades at the end of the cycle
