Nursery Admissions

Children can join our Nursery from the term following their 3rd birthday. 

All children over the age of 3 are entitled to 15 hours of childcare (known as the Universal Offer).  In addition, some families may be entitled to an additional 15 hours (known as the Extended Offer), providing they meet the Government's eligibility criteria. 

To check if you are eligible for the Extended Offer (30 hours), click here.

There are a number of patterns of attendance offered within our Nursery setting aimed to suit family preferences.  They inlcude mornings, afternoons, block start (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning), block end (Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday) and where eligible full time (30 hours).  Whilst every effort is made to accomodate requests, places within our Nursery setting are limited.

The Nursery day is structured as follows:

Morning session - 8.45am to 11.30am

Lunch Club - 11.30am- 12.45pm

Afternoon session - 12.45pm to 3.30pm

Lunch Club is run by Marsden Pre-School Playgroup.  Children attending Nursery for 15 hours per week, are entitled to 1 Free Lunch Club per week, which forms part of their 15 hour Universal Offer.  Children attending Nursery for 30 hours per week are entitled to 2 Free Lunch Clubs per week.  Lunch Clubs must be booked ahead of September directly with Marsden Pre-School Playgroup and it is the responsibility of parents to make these arrangements.  Lunch Club is held on the school and costs £4.50 per session.  Lunch is not provided, therefore children will require a packed lunch.
