About Our Nursery

Free places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds 

All 3 and 4 year olds and many 2 year olds are entitled to

15 hours a week free.

For working parents, 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 30 hours.

Each child is placed in a ‘family group’ with their own key worker; The daily routine has a balance of adult led, and child led activities and, the children spend part of each day in their small groups and part of the day accessing the whole nursery, both indoors and outdoors.

The nursery environment is organised in the following ways:-

  • The workspace is logical, interesting and stimulating
  • The apparatus is clearly labelled so that children can be independent
  • Adult participation is carefully planned
  • A structured daily routine
