Children join our Children's House either at the end of their second year or the beginning of their third. A three-year-old child is entitled to Government free nursery education funding which currently stands at 15 hrs per week over 38 weeks in one academic year. Parents may use their free entitlement in isolation or they can fund hours outside the free entitlement.

Flexibility

We pay regard to the Code of Practice in respect of the nursery education funding and charge an additional premium as the Code of Practice permits for our Montessori activities, curriculum and resources as well as enrichment opportunities, meals, snacks and beverages. These are extra to the needs of the nursery education funding entitlement, but are essential to the ethos and philosophy that our school and nursery follows. Further clarification can be obtained by phoning 0845 601 1630 or from www.nyfamilies.info.

The basic offer is:
  • a session of 3 hours to be taken in the morning or afternoon, or
  • 2 x 3 hour sessions to be taken in the morning and afternoon.

The Code of Practice allows providers to tailor their offering to match the needs of the setting. The session offer described above works well with our Montessori ethos and philosophy. Other providers may have different levels of flexibility in their session offering.
