Tree Tops

Tree Tops is Fern Hill’s in-house wraparound care provision for all children from Nursery through to Year 6, managed and led by Fern Hill staff. It is a place to play and learn, and all children are welcome for breakfast from 7:30 am until the start of their school day and after school from the end of their school day until 6:00 pm. After school, there are two additional options: an early half session until 4:30 pm or a late half session from 4:30 – 6:00 pm. The late half session is available for children in Years 1 - 6 who are attending an after school club on site. 

Our thoughtfully planned provision includes crafts, role-play/small world and construction/Lego, puzzles and games, access to the computing suite and our fantastic outdoor areas with the Secret Garden, Astroturf pitch, table tennis tables, basketball and netball hoops and multi gym equipment. There is also a quiet space for working and reading. Children are welcome to bring their homework to complete, but please be aware that there is no teaching support available to them for this at the present time. Most weeks have a theme, to inspire and engage the children in their learning and play.

Depending on the session, children are offered breakfast, a healthy snack and/or a light tea during their time at Tree Tops.

Please note that on the last day of every term, school closes early at 1:30 pm. Tree Tops is open for a single session that runs from 1:30 - 4:30 pm only, chargeable as a full session.
