Starting at Nursery

Children usually start in our nursery the September, January or April after their third birthday (3-4 years old). Before your child starts nursery, a member of our Early Years team will, where possible, visit you and your child at home.

A member of the team will make arrangements for you to visit the nursery and settle your child in gradually. Children may attend for morning, afternoon or full day sessions and parents can indicate a preference subject to the availability of places.
