The Nursery operates during normal term time and is limited to 26 children per session. There are two sessions a day (09.00 to 12.00 and 12.00 to 15.15). Children are welcome to stay all day, (subject to availability) and we encourage where possible that children stay at least one full day a week, as it helps them prepare to join their Reception class.
Children can start at our Nursery in the term after they turn 3. For example, a child having their third birthday in November, would be welcome to join us in January.
Besides providing 15 hour and 30 hour packages of free provision for all eligible three year olds, we are also able to offer a Breakfast Club. After school and holiday provision is provided by Smartkidz Play and Learn. Please contact them directly for more details. https://smartkidzplayandlearn.co.uk/
Joining our Nursery is a simple process:
- To register a place at our Nursery and join the waiting list, please complete this form.
- Please also see our code of conduct, to give you a feel for requirements for Nursery (code of conduct)
The term before your child is due to start in the Nursery, we will contact you to see if you still wish to have a place and clarify what sessions you are after and on which days. We will then invite you and your child in to have a play-date in the Nursery to meet the team and see their new exciting learning environment.
In the event of us being over-subscribed, we follow the same published admissions criteria as we do to the main school. Whilst both Nursery and Reception classes are very popular, the application processes are different and being part of the Nursery has no bearing or influence on admissions to Reception.
