Full Time Nursery
We are pleased to inform you that we offer full time Nursery places at Woodlands Academy. Children will be able to attend from 8:30am until 3:00pm every day during term time. As we are a school Nursery, all children who attend will need to be at least 3 years old.
Children over the age of 3 years old are entitled to 15 hours free nursery care per week, which equates to 3 hours per day. In the same way that a privately run nursery would charge, there will be a charge for the extra hours attended. The cost to parents/carers will be £73.50 per week.
The cost does not include lunch and parents/carers will need to pay for a school lunch or provide a packed lunch if they prefer. During the day children will be provided with mid-morning and afternoon fruit and milk.
In addition, Nursery children are welcome to apply for a place at our Breakfast Club and/or After School Care for an additional charge. Details of this are available from the school office. This would mean that children would be able to attend from 8:00am until 6:00pm.
If you would like to apply for a place please contact the school office
