As you may well be aware, Nursery sessions are being extended next session in line with government legislation. All Nursery children will attend a session of 3 hours and 10 minutes each day. This will affect the Nursery start and end times as seen below:
Morning Nursery session 8.45am -11.55am
Afternoon Nursery session 12.05pm- 3.15pm
This will also affect the staffing arrangements in Nursery as we will have two teams running – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. As yet we do not have our full complement of six staff for our Nursery but will keep you informed of staffing changes as things are finalised.
Children are allocated to each session to try and create a balance of girls/boys, 3 year olds/4 year olds, friendships, needs and interests. If you have any particular requirements (work patterns/childcare) then please CLICK HERE to download and complete the form to share this with us. We will try our best to accommodate your needs but appreciate your understanding when this may not be possible.
On behalf of the team, I would like to welcome you to our Nursery and hope you’ll enjoy getting involved in all that goes on at Crown!
