Subject to availability of places, we are currently able to admit children in school year N2 (the school year before Reception class).

If your child is in the next school year (N1) but is already 3, we may be able to offer either a funded place (from the term after their 3rd birthday) or a privately funded place.

We offer the following sessions:
5 mornings
5 afternoons
5 full days
Unfortunately we are not able to offer part of a week.

Please contact us directly on 01268 735329 if you have any questions about our Nursery provision.

If you wish to put your child’s name on our waiting list, please complete and return the application form, together with your child’s birth certificate and your proof of residence.

Please note that attendance at our Nursery does not guarantee a place in our Reception class.
