PE

We run tailored PE sessions once a week so that children can experiment with different movements and physical activities. These are ran on different days so all children get an opportunity to take part.

Music

We run music sessions once a week, delivered by an outside provider so that children can experiment with music and movement. These sessions inspire a love of music and also incorporate areas of the EYFS within a fun, enjoyable and relaxed environment.

Lunch Club

We offer a daily lunch club from 12.00 to 13.00. Children can bring their own packed lunch or we can offer a hot school dinner, home cooked in preschool. There is an extra charge for this please ask for more details.

Lunch club provides the opportunity for children to develop independent eating and social skills. It also helps older children prepare for the longer school day.

 

Nursery Education Grant

All 3 and 4 year olds now have the right to an early years education paid for by the government starting in the term following their third birthday. This means each child is entitled to 15 hours per week for up to 38 weeks a year. Some families will also be entitled to an additional 15 hours funding per week, to see if you qualify please check on the childcare choices website www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

We are also able to offer 2 year old funding. Currently there is no universal funding for all 2 year olds. However, Wiltshire Council does provide some funding for 2 year olds who meet certain criteria. To find out more please go to the Wiltshire Council website www.wiltshire.gov.uk

We also accept childcare vouchers as payment.
