Kaleidoscope Pre-school

Kaleidoscope Pre-school operates from a purpose designed, accessible building in Hampers Green and provides term time sessional childcare for children aged 2-5. The children are cared for in a welcoming open plan, free flow learning environment where the experienced team focus on learning and development through a variety of activities that support the Early Years Foundation Stage. The children also have access to a large safely enclosed garden with a soft surface covered area for ride on toys, a play house, a wooden pirate ship, a walk in sand pit and large lawn and natural shade from three large established trees. To the rear of the building there is a securely enclosed nature garden with a small child safe fish pond, a bug hotel, a digging pit, storytelling area, fruit trees and vegetable and fruit growing areas. Kaleidoscope Pre-school has been established for over 20 years within the community and is a not-for-profit registered charity with an active committee of trustees.

Wakoos Centre4Children

WAKOOS was founded by 2 members of staff from the Weald School in 1988, wanting to  ensure their children had care during work hours. WAKOOS stands for the Weald  Activities for Kids Out of School.

In 2008, WAKOOS re-located to a new purpose built environment which is shared with the Billingshurst Family and Children Centre. WAKOOS are now able to offer childcare up to 80 children at any one time within the secure indoor and outdoor areas.  With an additional 20 child capacity for the After School Club.

Easter Itinerary for 2019

In 2016 Wakoos opened up its 2nd site in Petworth, sharing a site with Petworth Primary School. Wakoos now provides childcare to almost 300 families in Billingshurst, Petworth and the surrounding areas.

Both settings are equipped to take children from 3 months - 11 years old.

At Petworth we have two rooms, one for the under 2s and one for 2-5 year olds.

At both sites we run a Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club covering all the summer holidays and INSET days.

Management

WAKOOS is managed by the Nursery Manager with support from the Business Manager. They are directed by a group of volunteer Trustees.
