Nursery

Applications, Intake and Inductions

The Cedars Primary School Nursery class is a 32 place nursery with a morning or all day session each day (so caters for up to 64 children). The morning session runs between 8:50am and 11:50am. The afternoon session runs between 12:20pm and 3:20pm. A full day runs between 8:50am and 2:50pm. The Nursery is led by our Nursery Teacher and two Nursery Nurses.

Applications

To apply for a nursery place in September parents / carers fill in an application form and submit this to the school office.  We will accept mid-year applications if places are available.

Induction to the Nursery

Successful applicants  will receive an offer of a place and details of the induction programme. We hold an induction evening where parents are invited to meet with the Headteacher and staff.  This provides an opportunity for parents to find out about the philosophy and ethos of the school and to have a tour of the Nursery.

Families are offered a home visit, or a visit to school, to fill in required paperwork and to meet the teacher and nursery nurse. Each child is given a start date and an initial stay and play session with their parent (in September).
