WELCOME TO ST IVES INFANT SCHOOL NURSERY

 

We are able to accept admissions after your child's third birthday and early application for a place is both welcomed and advised! 

 

We currently have places in our nursery in the mornings and afternoons. Please contact the school office for further information.

 

From September 2017 St Ives Nursery School has been offering the 15 hours free entitlement as well as the 30 hours extended entitlement for those families who qualify for this provision. This entitlement can be used flexibly making use of the provision of morning sessions, lunch club and afternoon sessions.

We are providing these extra clubs to cater for the needs of parents however you are not obliged to take up any of the extra sessions. This funding entitlement is from the term following your child's 3rd birthday. 

 

Morning Sessions

The morning sessions start at 8.45am and finish at 11.45am. We have noticed from experience that children settle better and get into a routine more quickly if they attend nursery on the same days each week.

One session will count as 3 hours out of your provision. You can also pay for an extra session as part of our extended provision at £13 for a three hour session.

 

Lunch Club

The lunch club runs from 11.45am-12.30pm and the children really enjoy staying for lunch. Children who attend afternoon sessions can also stay for the lunch club arriving at nursery at 11.45am.

Parents can choose whether to provide a packed lunch and a drink or to have a delicious hot lunch, made by our school cook who makes everything from scratch. The lunch club will count as one hour per day out of your entitlement, or alternatively, costs £2 per day.

If you wish your child to have a hot lunch, it will be an additional £2 per day. You can change between a packed or hot lunch depending on what is on the menu for that day, just let us know in the morning.

 

Afternoon Sessions

These start at 12.30pm and finish at 3.30pm. We have noticed from experience that children settle better and get into a routine more quickly if they attend nursery on the same days each week.

One session will count as 3 hours out of your provision. You can also pay for an extra session as part of our extended provision at £13 for a three hour session.
