Queensway Nursery

 

The school is very excited to announce that it will be opening a nursery class in September 2019. This will be open to children aged 3 and 4 years of age. Queensway Nusery does not offer a provision for 2 year old children.

The aim is to build upon the continuing success of our Foundation Stage and give children a positive start to school life in a secure and nurturing environment.

The nursery will have its own spacious classroom and outside play area adjacent to the current Foundation Stage Class.  The staff team will be an Early Years Teacher and up to two Teaching Assistants/Nursery Nurses who are highly experienced Early Years practitioners.

Universal Early Education Funding (15 hours) entitlement starts from the term after your child's 3rd birthday: 

Autumn Term: September 1st - December 31st

Spring Term: January 1st - March 31st

Summer Term: April 1st and August 31st

The 15 hour provision is for 5 mornings (8:30am-11:30am) or 5 afternoons (12:15pm-15:15pm), 5 days a week, term time only. Other patterns of attendance cannot be accommodated, however requests for a child who attends for 15 hours to access extra sessions on a paid basis will be considered if there is capacity and this would be at a cost of £10.50 for one morning or afternoon.

30 Hours Extended Childcare Entitlement

From September 2017, families meeting certain eligibility criteria are now legally entitled to a funded early years place of 30 hours per week. Information on this entitlement is available at www.childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk. This provision will be from 9:00am-15:00pm, 5 days a week, term time only. Children eligible for this extended entitlement may access 15 hours at Queensway (5 mornings or 5 afternoons) and use the remaining 15 hours with another provider such as a childminder etc.

Parents can also book their children into breakfast, lunchtime and after-school sessions at an additional cost for each.

As our Nursery will be part of Queensway's educational setting, the uniform for nursery children will be the same as it is for our school-aged children.
