30 Hour Extended Offer

We are able to offer places for extended hours for parents who are entitled to the extended funding (see the website or speak to Mrs Smith for more information).  These hours can be taken between 8.30am – 3.30pm.

If a child is not entitled to the extended offer, parents are able to pay for afternoon sessions.  This is charged at £3.50 per hour or part hour and is bookable with the nursery on a daily basis.

Our Nursery has:

Purpose built building with –

  • Bright play areas and adjoining toilets
  • A secure outdoor play area with soft play surfaces and large apparatus.
  • A fully functioning kitchen for preparing snack and children’s cooking.

Settling in

The settling in period is a very important time in Nursery for your child.  We will try hard to make the transfer from home to Nursery a happy experience.  Parents are welcome to bring their child into the room and spend as much time as necessary settling their child.  Each child will be allocated a Key Worker within their first week who will be responsible for building a supportive relationship with your child and recording their achievements.

Bringing and collecting:

  • All children must be accompanied to and from school by a responsible adult. 
  • It is important that children are dropped off and collected on time as they will become anxious if you are late.
  • Please inform us in advance if there will be someone new collecting your child.
