2-3’s and 3-4's Maintained Nursery
At Platt Bridge Community School we have a 24 places in our 2 Year Old Room for children aged 2-3 years. Some parents/carers may be entitled to 15 hours free 2 year old funding per week, term time only, for their child.
Please note that we currently offer parents sessions on either mornings, afternoons, or a full time basis (Monday to Friday) 5 day basis. We have a 60 place nursery (am, pm or full time) for children aged 3-4 years. All parents/carers of 3 year olds are entitled to 15 or 30 hours free nursery education per week, term time only, for their child.
If you choose to purchase additional sessions to extend your child’s hours there will be a charge for this service. Children who stay over the lunchtime period can purchase a cooked meal or bring a packed lunch. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate your first choice, but this may not always be possible.
The Nursery is organised across three rooms with access to a purpose built outdoor areas. The Nursery day is organised into short sessions of small group focus activities and longer periods when the children can choose from the range of activities provided both indoors and outdoors. Some of the activities that your child may access include:
In the 3 Year Old Room children are able to move freely between the indoor and outdoor area to have the opportunity to participate in large physical play. The younger children also have daily access to their outdoor area in small groups. Therefore, all children will need to bring a coat and wear suitable shoes as much of children's learning will take place outdoors!
The children are divided into key person groups for registration, discussions and other small group activities. Each child is allocated their own key person during their induction to Nursery.
At Platt Bridge we also offer before, after school and holiday club for the children aged 2 - 11 years.
