Please contact any of the team if you have any questions.

If you are interested in a place at our Nursery please contact the school on 01274 410349 and ask for Mrs Ackroyd or Mrs Foster. We offer a range of attendance patterns for free nursery funding and the option for parents to pay for additional sessions where required. You can find out more about free nursery places through the Childcare Choices Website. We will be offering the 30hours free childcare places to eligible families from September 2017, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

  • For working families in England
  • With 3 and 4-year-old children
  • An extra 15 hours a week of free childcare – so 30 in all
  • Parents of children who will be 3 on 31st August can apply now

If eligible, you’re entitled to an extra 570 hours of free childcare a year to use flexibly, so 1140 hours in total.

You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage). If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you’re unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible.

You can’t get 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more.

Available at participating:

  • Nurseries and nursery classes
  • Playgroups and pre-school
  • Childminders

Our provision


Outdoor Areas of Provision

We have a lovely outdoor area, which we use as an outdoor classroom no matter what the weather. So remember to send the children prepared!


This half term we will be looking at Weather and Seasons.  The children will be looking at the changes taking place, investigating warm, cold, experimenting with ice and noticing how these things effect our environment.

Indoor Areas of Provision

The areas of provision change each half term to support the learning taking place. We follow the children’s interests to make sure they are engaged in the activities and encourage the children to use them independently, supporting when needed and scaffolding learning opportunities. Our calm and nurturing environment helps the children feel comfortable and at ease which aids in their learning and helps integrate them into school life.

We have also welcomed some new children into our class and we are all working hard exploring the topic of Weather and Seasons together, helping the new children to feel welcomed and settled so they can enjoy learning along with the older children.
