Crown Wood has its own, integrated, Nursery. We take children the term after their 3rd birthday whose parents are entitled to either 15 or 30 hours of free child care.
You should use the online HMRC eligibility checking system at www.childcarechoices.go.uk to obtain an eligibility code. If you experience any problems checking your eligibility, please phone 0300 123 4097.
The nursery operates term time only and we offer the following sessions:
8.40am – 11.40am Morning Session
11.40am – 12.10am Lunch Club
12.10pm – 3.10pm Afternoon Session
For 30 hours funded children, the lunch club is free. For those staying for only the morning or afternoon sessions (i.e. 15 hours funded), there will be a £3 per day charge (£15 for a full week). This is payable in advance and we ask for a returnable deposit (further details will follow upon confirmation of a place). All children should be sent with a packed lunch. However, we are looking at whether you can purchase a hot school meal for your child in the future.
We are only able to accept applications for full-time Nursery places from parents who are eligible for the government’s 30 hours funding.
