How to apply for a Nursery place

Our nursery can accommodate children in a variety of ways: part time morning and part time afternoon, plus childcare. We can admit 60 children part time or different combinations of full and part time places.

We offer a choice of morning or afternoon sessions. Our morning session runs from 8.45am to 11.45am and our afternoon session runs from 12.20pm to 3.20pm.

Children enter Nursery on or after their third birthday. Applications may be made for a place from birth. Applications are welcome in person, by telephone or e-mail.

We welcome children funded for 15 hours or 30 hours.

We also offer 'extra childcare' between 11.45am and 12.20pm. Charges are applicable and a school lunch can be ordered (included in cost).
