This is a unique offer to be able to have nursery education and care led by fully Qualified Teachers together with high quality Day Care provision using the same facilities, staff work across the setting, train and work together to give the children continuity. The school offers a single intake in September 2019 for all children who will be going to their Reception classes in September 2020.
If you would like more information please contact the school office.
Wherever possible the Nursery recommends that children attend either all morning or all afternoon sessions. This gives them a good routine and a broad and balanced curriculum across the week. Morning and afternoon sessions offer all children the same high quality education and care.
MEALS: For flexi 1 and Flexi 2 when children do a morning and afternoon session on the same day a charge is made for lunch. Lunches are cooked on the premises by Herts Catering, they are served in small groups in our dining room. Children are taught to eat independently using a knife and fork, self-serving vegetables and learning good table manners in a pleasant social atmosphere.
Meal Clubs: additional extended sessions can be purchased with a breakfast lunch or tea subject to availability. Lunch and tea are both freshly cooked on site each day.
Admissions for funded 15 hours the term after a child’s 3rd birthday.
Children born in the summer months are sometimes not ready for the challenges of joining a Reception Class. It is possible for them to stay in Nursery and go through school with children in the next year group. This will mean that they become the oldest not the youngest which can be of great benefit to their learning and development. Please see Gemma Williamson if you would like to discuss this.
