Children will be able to join Nursery at the start of the term after they turn 2 years (for parents receiving qualifying benefits) or 3 years – providing spaces are available. For illustration purposes only, the term start dates are 1st September, 1st January and 1st April every year.
School session times
Session times for part-time children will be either 8.45 – 11.45 or 12.30 – 3.30 Monday to Friday. Times for full-time children will be 9.00 – 3.00 Monday to Friday.
Children aged 2 will be assigned to the Cheeky Monkeys group – with no more than 20 children in either session – and will be part-time. Cheeky Monkeys children will only be able to attend either the morning or afternoon session and not a combination of both.
Children who are just turning 3 will be assigned to the Pandas group – with no more than 22 children in the session – and will be part-time. Pandas children will currently only be able to attend in the morning, but depending on demand an afternoon session may be added later in the year.
Children aged 3 – 4 are assigned to either a morning or afternoon session – full time places will only be offered if you meet the Government eligibility criteria.
There will be no charge for childcare for part-time or full-time places as long as your child is eligible for government funding. If you wish to pay for additional care on top of your child’s free entitlement, please see the Chargeable Childcare section of the website.
