We are able to provide part-time places to 3 and 4 year olds under the Universal 15-hours of free childcare scheme, Monday to Friday, term-time only. Pre-School children start in September for either 5 mornings a week (08:45 - 11:45) or 5 afternoons a week (12.30 - 15.30).
We are also able to provide limited Full time places to working families eligible for Extended 30-hours of funded childcare. Children attend Monday to Friday 08:45 - 14:45 term-time only. If you would prefer your child to stay until 15:30 families have the option of paying an extra daily charge which is payable half-termly in advance.
Where spaces are available, children that will have turned 3 years old on or before 31st March (Rising 3's) may be able to start a term earlier in the Summer term. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer places for Rising 3's in the Spring term.
