Nursery Admissions

Admissions to Nursery


We offer morning or afternoon sessions for our nursery children - each session is 3 hours (15 hours a week) and is provided free of charge through government funding. 


Our morning sessions are 8.40am – 11.40am.

Our afternoon sessions are 12.25pm – 3.25pm.


We also offer full day nursery provision.  The hours for a full day are 8.40am – 3.25pm, five days per week. 

The first 15 hours are provided free of charge through government funding and some parents are entitled to 30 hours of free childcare a week.

To check if you are eligible, please refer to the document at the following link:

If you are not eligible for 30 hours, you will still be entitled to the 15 hours of free childcare and have the option to pay for the additional hours if you wish. 

There is a charge of £5 per day for all full day nursery children to cover the additional time over and above 30 hours over lunchtime.
