Who can apply?
The Nursery Village offers provision for children aged 3 and 4. Your child would start the nursery the term after their 3rd birthday. You can apply for a place at any time throughout the year. We hold a waiting list so you would be held on here for when you are ready to start. Please note, we are over subscribed as the year starts, so please do get your child's name down early.
We have three key points of intake across the academic year:
Children of this age are entitled to 15 hours of free government funded childcare per week.
We also offer 30-hour places available for eligible families.
You can also pay for extra sessions at the cost of £6 per hour.
To find out more information about free government funded hours and extended entitlement, please see the links below.
