Read here about our new arrangements for September, as we offer the 30-hour entitlement for free nursery places to eligible families. We accept children into our nursery from the age of 3 years old. We currently do not take 2 year olds. Funded places take effect in the term after your child’s 3rd birthday, but parents can choose to start their child from their 3rd birthday if they would like to pay until the funding starts. The charge is currently £5 per hour.
30 hours FREE Nursery places from September 2018 for all eligible families.
15 hours FREE guaranteed to all (subject to spaces being available).

Children love to start their learning at St Christopher’s Nursery. We have a lovely, purpose-built room for our Nursery, with its own separate access from the school car-park. There is a large outdoor area, and all Nursery children also visit our own onsite ‘Forest School’ area each week.
Parents are really happy with their children’s progress in the Nursery. “I’m proud of what my daughter has achieved at nursery. She loves the teachers and friends here very much. I hope she will keep this beautiful memory of staying with teachers and her friends during her whole life. Although we’ll go back to China soon, she will miss all of you very much”. (Yichen’s mum)
