 2021-2022 term dates

 

Morning sessions Monday to Friday 9.15am to 11.45am (all children from 2.5 years to starting school)

We focus on learning through play, using a tailored curriculum leading to approved learning outcomes. These sessions allow children the opportunity to make their own choices with adult interaction to encourage activities. We follow the National Curriculum's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children. We have a high adult to child ratio with a maximum of 28 children at each session and up to 6 staff, giving a high standard of individual attention.

 

Afternoon sessions Monday to Thursday 12.30pm to 3.00pm (available to children the year before they start primary school)

These sessions have been developed to aid the child in the transition from pre-school to primary school. Again, we have a high adult to child ratio, with a maximum of 15 children at each session, giving an excellent standard of care and attention. 

 

Lunch sessions are offered Monday to Thursday, 11.45am to 12.30pm (available to children the year before they start primary school). Priority is given to children attending both morning and afternoon sessions.

There is a fee of £6.00 per child per session. This fee is not covered by Universal (Funded Early Education) funding. Children provide their own packed lunch. It is not compulsory for children to attend the lunchtime session, even if they are attending both the morning and afternoon session that day, if you prefer you can take your child home for lunch.
