Children born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 can be admitted to Skyswood Nursery from September 2020.  Our governing body has decided to trial the offer of a summer term start (w/b 20th April) for those children who are 3 years old by 31st March 2020.  The trial will take place for nursery places offered for the academic year 2020/21 in the first instance.

Children will continue to be eligible to receive 15 hours of nursery education in the form of 5 nursery sessions of 3 hours each per week.  In response to local demand, we offer 5 morning sessions 9 am – 12 noon with the option of staying for a lunch club, 12 noon – 1 pm, at a cost of £4.00 per day (price subject to change).
