Nursery Sessions

Our nursery offers utmost flexibility for parents’ and children’s differing needs. Parents can choose from a range of session options on two or more days per week. Sessions start from just a morning or afternoon with the option of adding on the lunch hour, to a whole school day or even a full ten-hour day.

Parents can also decide if they would like their child to attend year-round or only during term-time. They can even book specific days during the school holidays through the Holiday Club, which is also open to other siblings in Pre-Reception, Reception and Year 1, with a choice of themed events and activities run in its own building by the Pre-Reception team leader.

From age three, children can either remain at the nursery in Poppies, move up to Pre-Reception at the school, or even combine the two on different days of the week.
