We will be offering 30 hour funded places in line with our current nursery sessions that run from 8:50am until 11:50am and 12:40pm until 3:40pm. Children can bring a packed lunch into school but care over lunchtime is free. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer F1 children school meals.
For parents who do not qualify for a 30 hour funded place, your 3 or 4 year old will still be eligible for their core 15 hours per week, morning or afternoon sessions and additional sessions can still be purchased at £10 per session subject to availability.
If you think your child is eligible for 30 hours funding and you would like to use this in our setting, please contact us through the website or phone the school office on 0151 677 4088 between 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
