Attendance

Children can start from the term after they turn 2 years of age (space permitting). Your child will be offered a minimum of three sessions a week which can be increased in subsequent terms. All children receiving government funding are expected to take their full 15 hours of funded early years sessions. We encourage children to attend a mix of morning and afternoon sessions.

Session Structure


Each session is structured as follows:

  • Free Activities - indoor and outdoor play with a wide range of activities to stimulate the child's interest, imagination and extend their knowledge

  • Register time

  • Drink and a healthy snack in small keyworker groups followed by structured age-appropriate activities

  • Singing time and movement

  • Story time
