Our options for 2 & 3 year olds

From September 2017 working parents may qualify to receive up to 30 hours free child care per week. We will have a number of places available for parents wanting 30 hours child care and there will be a number of options for taking this, including using our holiday club. This is all very new and we are still working through the options that we will be able to offer so please look out for information in the future.We already have a number of options for Pre-School and Nursery children (two and three year olds).

 

To help us get our provision right for parents we are currently asking you to let us know your needs. Please feel free to download our questionnaire and return it to the school.

 

We currently offer fifteen hours free provision in the Pre-School for two year-old children meeting the criteria.

 

At present we offer all nursery children fifteen hours free education from the term after their third birthday. This means that all children in an academic year group usually start our nursery class in September. Before then children may have 15 hours free provision in Saplings Pre-School from the term after their third birthday.

 

To enable more flexibility for parents we also offer the option of paying for time in Saplings and nursery. So, parents of children who are two  but do not qualify for a free place may choose to pay for time in Saplings. Likewise, parents of children who are three but do not yet qualify for a free place (term after their third birthday) or who have fifteen hours free provision in the nursery may pay for additional time.

 

Our Lunch Club enables children to stay longer than the usual morning session or indeed come to school before the afternoon session starts. It also enables us to extend the hours of some children in both Saplings and nursery. For example, a child may have a morning nursery session, followed by lunch club and then maybe an hour or two in the afternoon. Lunch Club and additional hours in the nursery currently have to be paid for.
