The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of two units: Nursery unit (FS1) and the Reception unit (FS2) - although we have two separate units we work very closely together and often share the outside areas.

We offer part time places for 3 year olds and currently have 4 spaces for funded 2 year olds (15 hours - 8:30am until 11:45am or 12:30pm until 3:30pm) - if you are interested in taking up a space please pop in and see us!

We also offer 30 hour full time places for 3 and 4 year olds (8:30am until 3:30pm) - this is at NO EXTRA COST.

You may apply for a nursery place at anytime but a place is only offered the term following your child's 3rd birthday. A visit is arranged prior to your child/ren starting, although you are welcome to come and visit anytime.

We look forward to meeting you all!


What do Ofsted say about us?

"the leaders of Early Years are highly skilled and determined. They have high expectations of all children"

"Leaders in the Early Years are ambitious for the children. They identify children's needs early on entry into Nursery and carefully plan activities so that children settle well and make good progress, academically and emotionally"

"Nursery children are very well prepared for Reception"

"Children are safe and well looked after in the Early Years. Safeguarding is effective and welfare requirements for the early years are met. Children develop well in all areas of learning in the early years, and by the time they leave Reception they are ready for Year 1"
