Starting Windmill Nursery

Thank you for your interest in Windmill Nursery.
 
You can register your child for a place at any time. Please contact the School Office (contact details above or see 'Contact' to send a message).

The Nursery is open Monday to Friday, 8.45 a.m. – 2.45 p.m. and provides 30 hours high quality early years education.

Children aged 3-5, are funded for either 15 or 30 hours per week (depending on your family’s entitlement), in the term following your child's 3rd birthday.
If your child's 3rd birthday is 1st April-31st August, s/he can start in September, Term 1.
If your child's 3rd birthday is 1st September-31st December, s/he can start in January, Term 3.
If your child's 3rd birthday is 1st January-31st March, s/he can start in April, Term 5.

It is possible for your child to start as soon as s/he is 3 years old, if spaces are available. If you are interested in your child starting then, please contact our School Office.

Children from some working families are entitled to 30 hours per week (10 sessions). To find out if your child is entitled to this funding, please see the link below or contact our School Office.

Windmill Nursery also offers additional sessions. The cost for each additional session is £12.

If your child is staying all day, a hot lunch can be ordered from our School kitchen, £1.60, or please bring a packed lunch.

How we help your child start Windmill Nursery
Starting Nursery is an exciting time and it is important for children to feel happy and secure. To help your child get to know us and the classroom before s/he starts, we provide
  • visit sessions for you and your child
  • a colourful booklet to take home and share
  • an ‘All About Me’ booklet so we can get to know your child quickly.
Come along to our Mill Lane and Windmill Toddlers. This fun community group for children of all ages is held in the School hall on Tuesdays, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. during term time, (£1.50). It’s a great way to get to know Mill Lane School and to meet other parents, carers, staff and children. Everyone is very welcome.
