Nursery (3-4 years) Nursery Session Times and Fees
At Thorpe Lea Primary we offer both part time and full time Nursery places. Currently, the government fund fifteen hours free childcare for all three year olds during term time. We provide this entitlement through a three hour session each day, Monday to Friday (term time only). With such a large premises, we are in the position to offer parents the opportunity for their child to attend Nursery for the full day (8.30 - 3.30). Please find our session times outlined below:
Part Time Hours* (15 hours government funded)
Morning Session 8.30 - 11.30 am
Afternoon Session 12.30 - 3.30 pm
* Please note that Thorpe Lea Nursery provides children with their fifteen hours free entitlement through five, three hour sessions each week. We are currently not in the position to offer this entitlement through means of full day provision.
Full Time Hours (optional)
Thorpe Lea Nursery currently offers two types of full time provision: a two day and a five day week. Details of both provision can be found below:
Two Day Provision - £44 per week
Children who have two day provision will still access either a morning or afternoon session each day (Monday - Friday) which covers their government entitlement. On a Monday and Wednesday however, they will receive a seven hour session which runs from 8.30 - 3.30pm. The cost covers the additional 8 hours of care a week that exceeds the child's fifteen hour entitlement.
Five Day Provision - £110 per week
Children who have five day provision will again, still access their government entitlement through the morning session of 8.30 - 11.30am (Monday - Friday). The cost of full time provision then covers the additional 20 hours of care a week that exceeds the child's fifteen hour entitlement.
