Places
A fully comprehensive range of places is provided to cover the needs of parents who work, including; full time, short time, part time, or individual sessions and days as well as term time places for parents who do not need cover during school holidays. All parents with 3-5 year olds at the school qualify for the nursery education grant, which will greatly reduce the fees you pay and can even be taken as a free place for 15 hours per week during term time. Many parents will also qualify for the new 30 hour grant which will give another big reduction in fees - see Terms and Fees for more details. For working parents, the fully inclusive fees (lunches, extended day etc) offer great value and often work out cheaper than a free state school place with wraparound care - so children can benefit from a  traditional nursery education at little or no extra cost! HOURS The nursery and the nursery school are open from 7.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, all weeks of the year except for bank holidays and Christmas closure. You may bring in you child as late as you like and collect as early as you like - so long as it within the hours permitted for the place. A light breakfast is supplied before 8.20am, a lunch at about 12.00am and afternoon tea is at about 4.00pm. These are included in the cost of the places (except places). PLACES AVAILABLE Full Time Full opening hours and all opening days - all meals included. This place is usually used by full time working parents and gives you complete use of the nursery whenever it is open. This is the most popular type of place. Full Time (term time only) The same as the full time place but for term dates for 38 weeks of the year. The term dates in general follow the Salford schools term dates where possible and details are on the link below. This place often suits parents who teach or work in education. It is possible to use holiday weeks if you wish, although this will be charged at the standard rate (less retainer, already paid) and subject to availability. TERM DATES this links to the school’s website Day Place Full opening hours on the chosen day for all weeks of the year - lunch included. Several different days may be combined, subject to availability, to make a more complex part time place. Suits part time working parents or parents who maybe don't both work but want to make pure use of the education provided. Part Time Places Either part time mornings (lunch included) from 7.30am to 1.00pm or part time afternoons from 1.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday for all weeks of the year. Obviously suits part time working parents or non working parents where they want to make use of the educational experience for their child. Short Time Places This place can be either Short Time mornings (lunch included) or Short Time afternoons, it is the same as for part time but just 3 mornings or afternoons, instead of the 5 - the days can be chosen by yourself, subject to availability. Tends to be used by parents not working but looking for a good educational starter for their child before they make their choices about nursery schooling. Individual Sessions Any morning session (7.30am to 1.00pm - lunch included) or afternoon session (1.00pm to 6.00pm) can be provided, normally we would encourage at least 2 sessions to help your child become familiar with nursery. Often these sessions are added to other part time places to make a more complex place. Free Place You must qualify for nursery grant to have a free place. Normally these places are three sessions, either am or pm, on separate days in term time only. You will be charged for lunch, snack and breakfast (£3.60pd) per am and Snack (£1.30pd) per pm. Places subject to availability and sessions days and times may be subject to change throughout the year. Sessions may be added to the free place and these will be charged at standard nursery rates (see above).
