Child Care Provision for Three Year Olds

Working in partnership with Love Lane Pre-School we can offer child care provision for three year olds in a school setting from 8:00am to 6:00pm, five days a week. This not only gives you affordable child care but also an excellent start to your child's early years education.  If you do not qualify for government funding we can provide this provision for £4.00 per hour (£5.50 from the 1st January 2020).

Universal hours = free 15 hours for all children.
Extended hours = extra free 15 hours for those eligible

To obtain the Extended Hours, you need to apply via the Childcare Choices website  https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

We are open from 8:00am to 6:00pm and work with Love Lane pre-school to offer a flexible service.

8:00 – 8.30am – Breakfast Club - School
8.30 – 11.30am – Pre–School
11.30 –3.30 – School
3.30 – 6:00pm After School Club - School

Children are escorted between school and pre-school by staff and will need a packed lunch provided by parents/carers.

  • The children will spend three hours per day at pre-school
  • The rest of the day children are part of our reception class and if needed, our before and after school club. 
  • Should you require more than the 30 hours funded provision, the school will charge extra hours at £4:00 per hour (£5.50 from the 1st January 2020).
