We also have a full-time class. These places are offered to children with a priority need at the discretion of the headteacher.

 

Yellow Rockets:    Monday – Friday: 9am – 3pm

 2-year-old group  

We also offer places to children in the term after their second birthday. As this is only a small group, places are limited.  These places are either fee-paying or are funded through the Free Early Education for Two-year-olds scheme (FEET).  Please click here for more information about FEET-funding and other forms of government funding.

 

Little Stars:  Monday - Friday: 9am - 12noon.

 30-hour places
We accept some children for government-funded 30-hour places:  Monday - Friday 9am - 3pm. To find out if you are eligible, please click here for the government website, and let us know if you may be eligible when applying for a nursery place here. See below for our Wharf Leaflet about 30-hour places.
