At St. Alban’s Nursery we offer a flexible approach to childcare sessions to enable us to effectively support our families.

Our offered session times are:

Mornings – 8.45am – 11.45am (3 hours)

Afternoons – 12.30pm – 3.30pm (3 hours)

Full day – 8.45am – 2.45pm (6 hours)

Full school day (extended to 3.30pm) – 8.45am – 3.30pm (6 hours 45 minutes)

Unfortunately we are not able to amend the timings of these sessions, but allow parents to pick and choose a combination which suits then best. Parents are able to choose any combination of sessions, subject to availability.

Lunchtime sessions can be included within the 15 or 30 hours funding or paid as part of a full school day. If you wish to discuss your childcare needs with us, please contact us on 01332 673823 and speak to the nursery teacher.
