Admissions & Sessions

Free childcare

Children are currently entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week (more information here) from the term following their 3rd birthday. Parents may choose how they wish to access their 15 hours and can choose either morning or afternoon sessions as suits their needs. We will always try to work with the needs of the family and support the best we can. Parents can put their child’s name down on our waiting list anytime. Children will be offered a place as soon as they become eligible and space is available.
