All children, irrespective of need, have statutory entitlement to part-time, funded, nursery education from the beginning of the term following their third birthday. All 3 year olds are entitled to up to 15 hours funded nursery care after they turn 3. The date you can claim will depend on when their birthday is. Please look at our Nursery Policy for more information on when you can claim.  

The provision offered in our Nursery is 5 weekly sessions of 3 hours each, additional sessions can be purchased termly in advance according to availability. There may be some flexibility for ad hoc sessions or lunchtimes and payment will be required on the day. The cost of a session is £13.50 which equates to £4.50 per hour. If places are available and a child stays for 2 sessions in one day, there will be an additional charge of £2.20 to cover the lunchtime half hour. If staying for lunch the children will need to bring a healthy packed lunch with no nut products.

Morning session 08:30 – 11:30 £13.50

Afternoon session 12:00 – 15:00 £13.50

We aim to provide a fun, child centred environment which will stimulate children to become independent learners.  All children have free flow access between the indoor and outdoor learning environment.  We support and encourage children’s spontaneous play to develop and build on their own ideas and interests.  Learning to be independent is an important part of the nursery curriculum, so the children will be encouraged to practise putting on and taking off coats, shoes, socks and aprons by themselves.  We also encourage the children to have a go at writing their names on their work and to tidy up after themselves.
