Nursery children are taught in our well-resourced Early Years Unit alongside the Reception children.  This supports the personal, social and emotional development of all as the Reception children are very caring and supportive of their younger peers whilst the nursery children have great role models to aspire to.  All children have access to a beautiful wooded outdoor area, complete with stream, which provides great opportunities for active learning through exploration and investigation.

In order to provide Parents and Carers’ with greater flexibility, we offer a range of options for the 15 hours funded nursery places.  Many choose to condense the 15 hours so children are in for 2 ½ days, instead of 5 am or pm sessions. Some opt for one full day and 3 sessions, either morning or afternoon and others pay for top up sessions at £15 per session.  A full week of 5 additional paid sessions costs £75.

Session times :

AM session:    8.45am – 11.45am

PM session:  12.15pm –  3.15pm

Full time    :    8.45am  -   3.15pm

Lunchtimes are a social event when staff and children eat their packed lunches together and unlike other local providers, we offer this FREE OF CHARGE.

Visits to the school are welcomed.

We have well established links with Shirley Children’s Centre, next door, and the children attend events such as Musical Bumps and Chatterbox.
