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.
