We are also registered for the 2 year old grant funding for eligible families.

We accept cash, cheques and childcare vouchers as payments and you can pay either monthly or weekly. All payment are to be made in advance, I.e weekly is to be paid on the first morning of attendance, monthly to be paid the beginning of month.




We work in Partnership with Parents to ensure we are as flexible as possible with children’s routines, therefore making their time at nursery as consistent as possible with home.

Once old enough to join in with the setting’s routine, children will have the following:

  • 10:30 – Snack Time
  • 12:00 – Lunch Time
  • 13:00 – Quiet Time
  • 14:30 – Snack Time
  • 16:00 – Tea Time

Before each Snack and Meal time there is Letters and Sounds time, designated to the Letters and Sounds Framework. This is a time for songs, rhymes, stories etc.
