Parents Information


We offer free, part-time or full-time places for children aged, two, three and four years old.  You can find out if your child is eligible for free funding by clicking here.

There is also an option to use free sessions and top up with paid sessions.  For pricing see below.

Children are able to join our 2-year old provision the day after they turn two.  Children are able to join the 3 year-old provision the term after their third birthday. 

As we have three intakes to Nursery 3 your child may start either September, January or after Easter depending on when their birthday is.

Admission to Nursery is very straightforward.  To enter our waiting list you will need to register interest by way of a small admission form which can be downloaded below.

The next stage will be to fill in the longer admission packs which require more in-depth details such as medical and passport information. 

These packs will need to be collected from school, filled in by hand and returned to the school office.


Please note that our Nursery is open term time only.  Term dates can be found at the bottom of this page.



Cost her Nursery session - £14 (morning or afternoon)

Before your child starts with us

We are passionate about working closely together with parents to ensure the best possible experiences for the children.  We will contact your before your child is due to start with us to arrange a visit to Nursery.  During this visit you will have the opportunity to ask about any aspect of Nursery and meet the staff.  Settling in sessions will also be arranged at this time.  Settling in sessions are different for every child and can be discussed with Mrs Hoyle at the Nursery visit.

Before your child starts with us please take time to fill out the 'I can' booklet which can be downloaded below.  This will help us to find out a bit more about your family and what your child is interested in.

We also have a very informative 'Nursery Handbook' where you will find useful information about starting Nursery.  This is also available to download below.


What to wear?

Children may wear what they wish at Nursery as long as clothing is practical and not too special.  We have many experiences that involve painting and messy play, and although we make every attempt to keep the children's clothes clean by using aprons, there are occasional spillages as we would expect in Early Years.  

Although not compulsory, some parents decide to buy a school jumper or cardigan which can be ordered from the following link:

Working together

Toilet Training

Being toilet trained is an enourmous step in your child's physical development, but we do understand that all children are very different and are ready for this at different times in their lives.  If your child is not toilet trained on entry to Nursery, please try not to worry.  We have nappy changing facilities in the two-year-old room and staff are very experienced and adept in the art of a quick nappy change.  Please ensure that your child brings sufficient nappies or pull ups to last the length of time that they are with us, as well as wipes and nappy bags.  If you feel that your child may be ready to start toilet training we are more than happy to work with you to ensure a smooth transition.

Magic Moments

We are commited to working together with parents to share information and ensure the best possible outcomes for the children.  We know that by doing this, a very powerful and positive impact on our children and their well-being is made.  One way of sharing information is by filling in a Magic Moment Voucher.  This can be anything from getting dressed independently to catching a large ball for the first time.  You can find the 'Magic Moments Vouchers' to download and fill in below.  Once returned, we will share these moments with the rest of the class.   

Meetings with parents/carers

In our 2-year old room we meet with parents once per term.  During this meeting we will discuss the 2-year check if your child has recently had it.  This is also an opportunity to talk about any worries you may have about your child or questions about child developement.  In our 3-year old room we have parents' evenings twice a year - once in the autumn term and once in the spring term.  In the last term before the children move to reception a formal report is issued from school.

Home-school links

Every half term we send home a newsletter outlining important aspects of nursery life and information about what we will be learning in the following weeks.  We also send Home-school links that are linked to our curricula goals and give us an insight to what your child is able to do at home.
