 CURRENT AVAILABILITY
We currently have a small number of places available at Breakfast Club.

There is a waiting list for After School Club - this is due to high demand and limited spaces in school.  The waiting list is constantly reviewed and updated and is in date and time order.  As soon as a place becomes available the parents of the children at the top of the list will be contacted.
 
Parents of children who are due to join Telford Infant School in Reception can apply for SMILES once they have been offered a school place for their child by Warwickshire Admissions - 16th April 2020.
 
New Reception children who have been offered a place at SMILES are welcome to start the sessions they have been offered at the club as soon as they are in school full time.
