Breakfast, After School and Holiday Care
Available to girls and boys aged two and upwards, our outstanding wrap-around care allows parents flexibility whilst knowing their children are safe and well cared for.
Breakfast Club takes place in our dedicated breakfast and after-school care building from 7:30am-8.00am. From April 2022 cereal, toast and juice are provided. Breakfast club is charged at £5.50 per session.
Every child is encouraged to take advantage of our extensive co-curricular enrichment programme, which runs until 5:00pm, and on average every child takes part in more than three clubs per week. Our enrichment programme allows each child to broaden their experience, strengthen their skillset and build new friendship groups. Many clubs are included within school fees, except those requiring additional support from external specialists. To see full details of this term’s clubs, please go to our Extra-Curricular Activities page.

Breakfast and After School Care FAQs
Bookings for both breakfast and after-school care should be made one week in advance using SOCS. This enables us to plan staffing and activities.
If there is space available, you can request a booking with less than a week's notice by emailing the breakfast and after school club staff directly, detailing your child's full name, class, and the date required. Once staff have checked there is capacity on the day requested they will confirm via email. Please do not bring your child to breakfast club unless you have a confirmed booking.
If you need to cancel a session you have already booked, please email the breakfast and afterschool care staff directly before 9.00am on the day of your after-school care booking or before 3.00pm the day before your breakfast club booking. Sessions cancelled in this way will not be charged.
If your child does not use your booked session and you have not cancelled before the deadline, you will be charged for the breakfast club session or for one session of after-school care. If you collect your child early you will be charged for all sessions booked.

Holiday club: The Zone at Banstead Prep
The Zone is a multi activity day camp operating at Banstead Prep School. We welcome children from all schools, from those currently in Nursery to those currently in Year 7. Our popular holiday camp is managed and run by school staff and supported by other specialists as well as our Zone assistants so you can be sure that your children are in great hands. Nursery children are cared for in our school Nursery, led by qualified Nursery staff and their activities are also themed around our zones.
For those children that attend the school it is a familiar environment where they already feel safe and a great way for new joiners to get to know their school and meet children from their year group. For those who do not attend Banstead Prep, it is a great opportunity to make new friends in the local area.
The Zone operates from 9.00am – 4.00pm and the daily rate is £43 for The Zone and Sports Zone. Mini Zone is £53 a day with a 1:4 staff to child ratio. There is a 5% discount on a full week’s booking and an early start is available from 8am and a late finish (Chill Zone) until 5.30pm. There is an extra charge for these sessions of £5 (early) and £8 (late).
