The Nursery caters for children from three to four years of age. Children can be admitted to the Nursery in the Autumn or Spring Terms following their third birthday. Our usual intake is in September but depending on numbers we may also take in the spring or summer.
Here in the Nursery we provide the children with opportunities to explore and learn through play as well as more focused experiences. Everything is designed to develop the essential social and learning skills children need when entering more formal learning at a later stage. We like to promote inquisitive minds and independent attitudes and have created a space in which children can thrive. The Nursery is a large welcoming space, full of exciting and engaging equipment which is readily available for the children to access themselves.
We offer an expansive outdoor area which is fully enclosed and partially covered to allow access whatever the weather. We have also just added a small woodland area.

Learning at home
When children are at Nursery age, every moment matters and their home experiences are incredibly important to us here at Nursery. We encourage parents to share their child’s news and experiences with us either by bringing in toys or photos for sharing at circle time, or by filling in a ‘Wow!’ slip to be added to the child’s Learning Journey Book.
The Nursery sessions are split into a morning and afternoon.
The morning Nursery session is 8.45am - 11.45am.
The afternoon Nursery session is 12.15pm – 3.15pm.
Fees - ‘Flexible Entitlement’
Parents are allowed to choose up to 15 free hours Nursery provision per week. Should parents wish their child to have extra time in the Nursery they may be able to pay for additional hours subject to availability. The cost for extra hours is £4.50 per hour. If you would like your son/daughter to stay for lunch then we do charge £1.00 to cover supervision costs. Parents are asked to provide a packed lunch.
