Nursery Sessions

 

At Wheatfields Nursery we offer each child an entitlement of 15 hours of high quality provision. We have devised a number of options and we hope one of these arrangements will suit both your child and family's needs.

 

Session times: morning 8.40am – 11.40am; afternoon 12.20pm – 3.20pm

 

The options available to you, are as follows:

 

Option 1: 5 morning nursery sessions

Option 2: Beginning of the week – all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning*

Option 3: End of the week – Wednesday afternoon, all day Thursday and Friday*

Option 4: 5 afternoon nursery sessions

Option 5: 30 hours**

 

* involves a cost of £3.50/ day to cover lunchclubs on the full days as this is above the 15 hour free entitlement

** involves a cost of £3.50 / day to cover the cost for last session of the day as this is above the 30 hour free entitlement

 

Additional sessions may be available once numbers have been confirmed at a cost of £20 per session (or payable with 30 hour free childcare funding - please see more below)
