Admission to Nursery

Mr Fotheringham and his team welcome children into Nursery in the school term following their third birthday. Children are entitled to fifteen hours’ Nursery education.

The times for Nursery sessions are:

Monday to Friday 8.45 - 11.45am and 12.20 - 3.20pm

We also offer lunch club on certain days. Please ask Mr Fotheringham for details.

The Nursery is very much a play-driven environment, including both inside and outside activities. The children learn through having a great time painting, baking, singing, playing with sand and water, modelling, as well as computer activities, construction toys and story times, to name but a few things.

To apply for a place in Nursery please contact the school office. We are a 26 place Nursery so can offer 52 children a part-time place in our Nursery.
