Welcome to Coalway Early Years!

We are an outstanding early years setting run by a voluntary committee, providing a fun, safe, happy and caring environment for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old.

Notice Board


In line with government guidelines we expect to be fully open from the start of the Autumn term on 3rd September 2020.  We will continue to put in place protective measures to ensure the safety of staff, children and their families.

Session Times

We offer full day (9am to 3pm) or half day (9am to 12pm; 12pm to 3pm) from Monday to Friday for all ages during term-time, meaning that we can fully accommodate the 30 hour funding if required (applicable to some children from the term after their third birthday).

We can also offer extended care via the on site 'Kid's Club'.

Parent and Toddler group - please note that we will no longer be running this group from September 2020.  Instead, we will be offering introductory sessions for children due to start at our playgroup (please see details in 'About Us').  We can also sign-post you to other parent and child groups operating in the local area.

Please contact us for further information, to reserve a place for your child,

or to arrange a visit.
