“Practitioners have high expectations of what children can do, and as a result children thrive and are well motivated to learn in this extremely welcoming nursery”. Ofsted 2015.
Birth to Three:
The nurseries for the children from 3 months to 3 years are open for 50 weeks from 7.45am to 5.45pm. We have a nursery room for 12 babies under 2 years, and one for 26 children 2 to 3 years old. Both have access to a covered outdoor play area. The staff includes a Teacher, Early Years Practitioners and Early Years Support Workers. Parents can buy a full or part-time place as needed; see Admissions for more information on costs.

The nurseries for the children from 3 years to 5 years are open for 50 weeks from 7.45am to 5.45pm. There are 2 rooms for 3 to 5 year olds – red class and yellow class.
Nursery School Provision:
The free entitlement for 3 to 5 year old children is 15 hours each week for 38 weeks during school term times. At present the 15 hours can be taken as five morning places from 8.45am to 11.45am each week or five afternoon places from 12.30pm to 3.30pm or over 2 ½ days. Should you wish your
child to attend over 2 ½ days there is a charge for lunch at £1.30 per day.
