Our nursery is led by a  teacher and two experienced early years support workers and teaching assistants who are dedicated to ensuring that learning is at the heart of all that happens in our nursery session - through carefully planned play.

Children are eligible to enter our nursery the term after they turn 3 if there are spaces available.   For example if they are 3 in April, they can start in September.  If they are 3 in September they can start in January.  There are 26 places in the morning and and 26 in the afternoon.  Every child is eligible for 15 hours of free nursery education per week and in our school, this can be taken as morning sessions or afternoon sessions. Sessions run from 8:45-11:45am and 12:30 - 3:30pm. 

 In September 2019 there will be 20 x 30 hour spaces available for working parents (eligibility checks apply). These sessions run 8:45am to 2.45pm with the option to extend the day until 3.30pm which costs £5 per session per day. 

 There will be 6 morning and 6 afternoon spaces for those children whose parents do not qualify for 30 hours of childcare. Please note that sessions can not be split across different providers. 

 There are three intakes a year: September, January and April (after the Easter holidays).  We will only be able to accept pupils if there are sufficient spaces.
