Children are accepted into Nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday. The Nursery is open to any child in Spalding and District.

The Nursery can hold up to twenty nine 3 or 4 year olds both in the morning and afternoon. We offer 15 hours free provision a week for 3 & 4 year olds or 30 hours for those working parents who are eligible. This can be taken in 3 hour daily sessions, morning or afternoon, or more flexibly, in blocks of 6 hours. There is also the facility to pay for additional hours, spaces permitting. A school meal can also be provided for an additional charge.

Children in Nursery regularly join in main school activities and assemblies and have the opportunity to use our extensive playground and outdoor areas. The Nursery and Reception Class teachers plan and work together very closely so that children transfer to our main school experience as smooth a transition as possible.

Application forms for a Nursery place are available to download from the Parent Zone or to collect from the main school office.
