We are delighted to have the Hatchlings Nursery in the Early Years setting for pre-school children aged 3 years and over. Our two Nursery Practitioners, Mrs Wild and Miss Bourne are doing a superb job in preparing children for their first year at school in Reception.
The nursery is structured into two groups and operates during term time only:
Monday and Tuesday: 8:40 - 3:00
Wednesday: 8:40 - 11:30
Wednesday 12:00 - 3:00 (Please bring lunch)
Thursday and Friday: 8:40 - 3:00
Group sizes are very small and are limited to 16 children per Hatchlings group. This really is a wonderful opportunity for children to have a fantastic Nursery year!
Parents/carers must give a minimum of two week's notice for their child leaving the nursery.
We offer places for children in receipt of Early Years Free Entitlement funding of either 15 or 30 hours per week. 30 hours places are limited to four children to ensure that the widest number possible of families can benefit.
