The nursery currently caters for 52 children on a part-time basis. Children attend for five mornings or five afternoons per week.  Children who have been offered a place will be invited to visit the nursery with their parents and we also arrange visits to your home to meet the child in their own surroundings.

Please ensure that applications are made on the appropriate application form for the year of intake. Applications are valid for that academic year’s intake only.

Applications can be made between 10th November and 10th December preceding the child’s admission. We will offer places for 26 children for the five morning sessions and a further 26 for the five afternoon sessions.

The child’s universal entitlement at this school is for 15 hours per week for  2018/19.
