Our 2 year old provision is available for children who are eligible for 2 year old funding, and they can attend for 15 hours per week. We offer places in the morning or afternoon. To find out if you are eligible for 2 year old funding, you can apply online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/freechildcare or by phone on 01629 539316, 01629 539317 or 01629 539319.
Our 3-4 year old provision is available for all 3-4 year olds, and children can attend for 15 hours a week from the age of 3. We have 26 places in the morning and 26 places in the afternoon. The learning is planned by our experienced early years teachers and their highly qualified team of teaching assistants.
Admissions to our nursery are termly and are based on the same criteria as admissions to the infant classes. Admissions to our 2 year old provision are based on the same criteria, plus eligibility for 2 year old funding.
