Nursery Opening Hours

With effect from April 2010 the school has, in line with government policy, increased the nursery’s hours from 12½ hours to 15 hours per child. This means that each session has increased from 2½ hours to 3 hours. In order to make this change the nursery’s opening hours have altered to:-

  • Morning session: 8.45am to 11.45am
  • Afternoon session: 12.45pm to 3.45pm

The school will be able to offer parents the opportunity to purchase additional sessions in 2011 subject to availability.

Lunchtime supervision, 11.45am – 12.45pm, is available – please enquire at the school office.
