Extended day care
In addition to the normal school day, Charlton-on-Otmoor Church of England Primary School also offers parents the option of extended day care through the Breakfast Club and CAST:
CAST (Charlton After School Team) is an after school club whose aim is to provide the highest quality of childcare and play. CAST is open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3.15pm to 5.30pm and costs £9 per child per session. The children are free to choose from a wide range of play and creative activities both indoors and out. This includes activities such as construction sets; playmobil; Lego and kNex; craft activities using a wide range of materials, junk modeling, paint and clay; role play and dressing up. Water, sand, balls, hoops and games such as table tennis are available outside. A quiet area is always available where the children can rest, read a book and chill out. During the sessions, children are provided with a healthy snack. Breakfast club runs along similar lines but is available 5 days a week from 7.50 to 8.50am at a cost of £3.50 per child per session. Both can be booked through the school’s Tucasi online system in the same way that lunches are currently ordered.
