We are currently offering 30 hours.  You will need to apply for your 30 hour code before the end of the term for your child to begin the following term.  Please be aware that attending our nursery class does not guarantee you a place in our reception class.

We currently run a morning and an afternoon session.

Morning session is 8.30 am – 11.30am and afternoon session is 12.15pm – 3.15pm.

There are 26 places in each session.
