We have places for 15 hours and 30 hours nursery timetables, which runs at the same time as the normal school opening hours. Unfortunately, we do not allow parents to pay for additional hours (top-up fees). 

We enrol children the term after their 3rd birthday. Enrolment takes place at the beginning of the September term, January term and April (after Easter) term. For example, if your child turns 3 in November, they are able to start with us in the following January. 

Our nursery is very popular and we have some parents who have added their child's name to our waiting list when their child is just a few months old. To add your child's name to our waiting list, please complete the form above and return it to the school office (additional proof of ID will be required).

All nursery children need to have an up to date signed provider agreement for funding purposes. These are available from the school office and will be discussed during enrolment.
