Stay & Play

At Heritage, we have intentionally chosen a gentler start for our youngest pupils with two full days and three half days for Lower Prep pupils, and one half day for Upper Prep pupils. We believe this brings a balance to a child’s week, with focussed, high quality learning taking place at school and plenty of time to rest and play at home in the afternoons.

However, to simplify logistics for parents we are pleased to offer Stay & Play with Miss Cage and her team on each of the half days; Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1pm-3.30pm. This is available to Lower Prep pupils, and to Upper Prep pupils on Wednesdays only.

Miss Cage is an exceptional member of staff. She was recently nominated Student of the Year on completion of her Foundation Degree in Education and Play. Her Stay & Play sessions are full of delights and include gardening and cooking, crafts and stories, free play and trips to the playground, the City Library or Cambridge Botanic Garden. The children in her care all love it.

These sessions are entirely extra curricular. They do not contain any extra teaching and will be intentionally low-key. Children who do not attend will not be missing out.

There is an additional termly fee for Stay & Play, proportionate to the hours a pupil spends at school. For example, for Lower Prep pupils who attend all three days each week, total fees are equivalent to those for a Year 2 pupil.

Note that Stay & Play is separate from and in addition to the After-School Club, which will be available every day for pupils in Lower Prep through Year 6 beginning in September 2024.
