Nursery: age 3-4 years

We are offering provision within our Early Years class for nursery age children from age 3. Our new outdoor area gives freeflow access to outside learning and play to provide a stimulating learning environment. A purpose built outdoor shelter ensures play is not stopped when the weather is wet.

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. Your child can start from the term after their 3rd birthday.

Children can start as soon as they turn 3 years old but as their entitlement to funding doesn't start until the term after it will be charged at £4.50 per hour.

To give the youngest children a chance to arrive and leave when it is less busy, we have put in place the following drop off and collection times:
Drop off: 8.45am (registration at 9.00am)
Pick up: 3.15pm
If your child requires a half day session, these end/begin at 12pm.
All parents are required to complete and return the form below so that their child's funded hours can be applied for.  Any change to hours requires a new form to be completed. One month’s notice is required.

Some 3 to 4-year-olds are eligible for 30 hours free childcare a week. Click on the link below to see if you are eligible and how to apply.

If you require additional hours beyond your funded hours, we can cater for this.  This year across the Multi Academy Trust, the hourly rate for additional hours will be £4.50
