We have two classes - Cherry in the Morning and Apple in the afternoon.

Session Times
Morning Nursery session: 8.30am—11.30am
Afternoon Nursery session: 12.15pm– 3.15pm

We have 15 minute flexible drop off time for the morning sessions - parents can drop children between 8.30 and 8.45am and then collection time is 11.30am.

For the afternoon drop off time is 12.15pm and then we have the 15 minute flexible collection time at the end of the day - parents can collect between 3pm - 3.15pm.

Any children that miss the allocated drop off time will need to bring children to the school office where they can be brought through to the unit.

Children in Nursery are not required to wear school uniform however you may wish to purchase a school tracksuit from our uniform provider. Alternatively we suggest your child comes to nursery in easy to mange clothes. They will require  a coat and sensible footwear for each session.

Nursery will be involved in a P.E. session each week and the children will need to come to school dressed in suitable clothes to  participate in active activities. Children will be asked to remove their shoes and socks and then put them back on again as Independently as possible.

All children are encouraged to come into the café and have a drink of water or milk .  Children may drink from here throughout the session.  Every child aged 3-5 yrs is entitled to free milk provided by the Government. If your child is unable to drink milk please speak to a member of the team.

Children are also provided with a piece of fruit as part of the government school fruit and vegetable scheme. They will be able to eat this in the café at any point during their session. Please do not  provide your child with any additional snacks or drinks.
