Wrap-Around Care



We are delighted to announce that from September 2021 we will be operating our own, school led before school (Wide Awake) and after school (Mini Explorers) clubs. 


Our aim is to promote high aspirations for all and a love of learning through rich and creative activities, which is rooted in fun, engaging and playful first hand experiences.  Our team will support your children having the very best start and end to their day and will provide a child- focused stimulating environment for children to learn and develop. 


Wide Awake (Breakfast Club)

Our Wide Awake Breakfast Club will open every weekday morning during term time from 7:30am (please note the club will be closed on INSET days). 


Children will be offered cereal, toast with a variety of spreads, fresh fruit and juice and taken to their class at the start of the school day.  


The cost of Wide Awake Club is £5.00 per child, per day. 


Mini Explorers (After School Club)

Our Mini Explorers After School Club will open every weekday after school during term time until 6:00pm (please note the club will be closed on INSET days). 


Children will be collected from their classrooms at the end of the day and will be offered a range of activities to promote child development through play.  There will be a strong focus on outdoor play, using our amazing outdoor spaces as inspiration for activities such as den building, treasure hunts, team games etc.  Children will also have opportunities to enjoy indoor activities, such as games and puzzles, reading and story telling, arts and crafts and imaginative play. 


Children will provided with a light snack, prepared on the premises by staff. Snacks will be healthy and nutritious. All food and drink will comply with dietary requirements and with the school’s status as a “Healthy School”. Fresh drinking water will be available to children at all times.

Who can attend?

Our Wide Awake and Mini Explorer clubs are open to William Lilley pupils.  Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to offer places to siblings at other schools. 


How do I book?

Bookings are made in advance for the following half term through our online bookings and payment system, SchoolMoney. Parents will be advised when bookings are open and will be invited to log on to their SchoolMoney account and book any sessions required.  Parents can use their SchoolMoney account to amend their bookings and pay for sessions.  We will contact parents at the start of each half term to invite you to make bookings for the following half term. 


How can I pay?

Payments can be made online via your SchoolMoney account. We are also able to accept payment via any of the childcare voucher schemes available; please contact the school to advise which voucher scheme you would like to use and we will register with that provider if we haven’t already done so.  Unfortunately, nursery parents are not able to use their 15 or 30 hour nursery funded hours entitlement as payment. 










We have experienced childminders who regularly do school drop-offs and pick-ups from Willey Lilley Infant and Nursery School.
