Introduction to Our Nursery

              About Us                  

Based in picturesque open countryside, conveniently located between Leek, Biddulph and Congleton, our popular governor-run Nursery for children aged 3+ opened in September 2016 and we’ve been delighted to see it grow (along with the children!) over the months to May 2017 at which point we have just a few sessions remaining. At the time of writing we have a cohort of 15 Nursery children who have a variety of attendance patterns during the week, ranging from 2.5 to 19.5 hours! We offer funded hours (currently 15 per week and rising to 30 in September, based on eligibility), as well as privately funded hours. We are open term-time (equivalent to 38 weeks per year) from 8.45am to 3.10pm, in line with the school day. For 4 year olds attending our Nursery, we also have wrap-around care provided on site by our Kipling Club (subject to separate charge).
