Term Dates & Childcare Fees

We are registered for 34 children aged 3 months to 5 years and open for 51 weeks of the year. The nursery gives the option of ‘all year round care’ (51 weeks) or ‘term time only’ (38 weeks). A different combination of sessions can be used at the nursery, for example: 8am-12pm, 8am-1pm, 8am-4pm, 8am-6pm, 9am-12pm, 9am-1pm, 9am-4pm, 9am-6pm, 12pm-4pm, 12pm-6pm, 1pm-4pm, 1pm-6pm. Free entitlement is eligible for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years.

All children over the age of 3 years (and some children aged 2 years) are entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week and this starts the term after their 3rd birthday and continues until their transfer to primary school. The 15 hour free entitlement will be given flexibly over a minimum of 2 days per week (for 38 weeks). No session must be longer than 10 hours and no shorter than 2.5 hours. If the free entitlement is used over 51 weeks, the hours will be ‘stretched’, giving a total amount of 11 hours per week.

We are extending our hours from 1st September 2017 and will be open till 6.00 pm Monday to Friday.
We will also be offering the 30 hours free entitlement for eligible families.
