To apply for a place in our nursery, please request an application form from the school office. You are more than welcome to come and have a look around our setting and meet our fantastic staff team.

If your child turns 3 between 1st September and end of December they will be offered 2 terms of 15 hours. This will be a morning or an afternoon dependent on availability. If you are a working parent and have an entilement code then we can offer 30 hours. All children become full time in their last 3 terms of Nursery. 
 
If children turn 3 between 1st Jan and Easter they can have 1 term of 15 hours unless they have a code entitling them to 30. They would  then get their last 3 terms of nursery full time as above. 
 
If their birthday is between Easter and end of aug then they get 3 terms full time regardless of a working parent code.
