We have 42 places available with a maximum of 21 children in any single session. 


We offer the universal entitlement of 15 hours and we also offer the extended entitlement of 30 hours for those who qualify and subject to availability. Additional sessions can be requested at a charge of £16.50 per session (increasing to £18 per session from September 2023).


The morning session runs from 08.30 am to 11.30 am and the afternoon session from 12.00 to 3.00 pm.  We offer a lunch session from 11.30 to 12.00 which is charged at £2.75 per day (increasing to £3 per day from September 2023).
