St Claire’s Childcare

Dear Families of Jewell Academy,

Today we have the great pleasure in writing to introduce ourselves as the new Wraparound Care provider for Jewell Academy. Some of you may have come across us before – we’ve been working in and around Bournemouth for the last 20 years running breakfast, after school and holiday clubs. We believe in providing the best quality childcare for the most affordable prices, so we aren’t a profit-making entity but a Community Interest Company.

We will be offering the following sessions:

  • Breakfast Club (inclusive of breakfast) 8:00 – school start £4.50
  • After School Club First Session (includes a light snack) school end until 4.15 £6.00
  • After School Club Second Session (includes a light snack) 4.15 – 5.55 £6.00

To give everyone chance to try us out, we’ll be offering each child at Jewell Academy two free sessions to use whenever they’d like, as long as we’ve got the spaces! This offer includes the Reception intake in September.

Although all of our registration and booking is online – you can find this at – we do still need one of our team to check over the registration information and activate your account before you can book. Currently this might take up to a few days but once active you can book whatever sessions you need.
We have two kinds of bookings; ‘Regular’, where you book & pay for a place on a certain day every week, we will continue to pick your child up on that day until you give us a month’s notice to cancel. ‘As & When’ As & When’ which cost an additional 50p per session but you have the flexibility of booking just the sessions you need.

Both kinds require booking in advance, although if you’re ever stuck and need us at the last minute, it’s worth calling us on 01202 429880 as we can probably help.
It is also worth saying that although we are starting our Ofsted Registration immediately, there is a chance we won’t be able to open until 5.55 in September – we will be able to offer the First Session and a reduced second session until our registration is complete.
Finally, we just wanted to say a big thank you to the school who have been great to work with – we are very excited to be opening in Townsend and can’t wait to meet you & your children in

Best of Wishes,
from Karen, Sarah, Tara & The Team!
