Skyswood Nursery Provision

Children born between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019 can be admitted to Skyswood Nursery from September 2022.  If places allow, we offer those children who are 3 years old by 31st March 2022 a start date during the first week of the summer term.  These children will then spend 4 terms in nursery.  In the event of more children being eligible for a summer start than there are places available, places will be offered in order of age with the eldest child in the cohort being first on the list.

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).
