Children are able to join our nursery the term after they turn 3. Our renovated nursery classroom is inviting and bright and is full of resources to allow your child to explore and learn whilst they make friends. Sessions are taught by our experienced Class Teachers and Nursery Nurse to ensure that your child gets off to the very best start. We offer 26 spaces in the morning and 26 spaces in our afternoon sessions.
Morning sessions run from 8.45 till 11.45 and the afternoon sessions from 12.15 until 3.15.
The morning sessions are for those children who are in the school year in which they turn 4 (the year before they start school full time in a reception class).
The afternoon sessions are for those children who are eligible for 30 hours extended provision under the new scheme (see below) or who have birthdays in the autumn and spring and have more than a year to go before they start school full time.
If you are interested in your child joining our Nursery, please do make an appointment by contacting our school office on 01235 848333 to arrange a visit and/or complete a form available on the website under the Admissions section to register your interest.
As of September 2017 our Nursery Class offers extended hours to eligible parents under the '30 hours' scheme. The scheme is designed to help families where both parents work (even part time). To check your eligibility, follow the link below:
If you child is eligible they can attend for both the morning and afternoon sessions and they are also able to stay in school for the half-hour lunch break, at a charge of £4 per day which includes a hot meal, or £2 if you would prefer to bring a pack lunch.
If you are eligible, you are allowed to split your sessions between two providers. However, we ask that you use a minimum of 15 in our setting if you choose to do this, for our financial viabliity. From September 2018 you will not be able to split your sessions between two providers.
