Each child is entitled to 5 funded sessions per week for 38 weeks in the year the following term of their 3rd Birthday. There are 2 sessions in a day.
The opening times are 8:45 – 11:45am or 12:30-3:30 pm. There is no additional charge for these five sessions.
We recommend a minimum of 3 sessions a week to start with.
For the additional sessions there will be an extra charge of £12 plus the additional cost of lunch club £3.60 which includes hot dinner.
Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The nursery forms part of the Foundation Stage of Learning.
Learning in this phase is especially important as it underpins and forms the foundation for all future learning. Children in the nursery follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum. There are six areas of learning including: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication, Language and Literacy; Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy; Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Physical Development and Creative Development.
The curriculum is play based; play allows children to learn in a natural, satisfying and fun way – appropriate to their stage of development and their interests. Play gives children the opportunity to practise their developing skills and use what they have learned in different ways. Opportunities for learning in all six areas of the curriculum are planned for indoor and outside.
