We offer a limited number of full day places from 08:45 a.m. – 4 p.m, which will include the 30 funded hours for those families that meet the government eligibility criteria. For children entitled to the free 15 or 30 hours there will be a charge for an agreed additional hours and services package. Please see the 15 and 30 Hour Funding page for more information.
All children make good progress from their starting points and are well prepared for their next stage of learning, including starting school. Children have good social skills and confidently form relationships with their peers and staff.
