Admissions


We take children from age two through to pre-school as space allows. The nursery day runs from 7.45am to 6.00pm, 51 weeks a year, to cater for the needs of working parents.

Flexible morning and afternoon sessions are available and government nursery and employer childcare vouchers are accepted

We have dedicated nursery staff for the Terrific Twos and Thrilling Threes and Fabulous Fours Rooms. Each room has its own Room Leader and staff dedicated to that room so they and the children get to know each other well.

A minimum of two sessions a week is recommended for two-year olds and four sessions for over three-year olds.

Both year-round and term-time places are available. It is a good idea to register your child well in advance as places get booked up early.

Arrange a visit

If you are interested in your child attending Little Crackers we would recommend that you make an appointment with Mrs Clare Bird, the Nursery Manager, or come to one of our regular Open Events. Alternatively you can come along to Stay ‘n’ Play, our toddler group, on Wednesdays in term-time from 10.00am to 11.30am to get a feel for the Nursery and chat with the staff informally. 

Simply complete a Registration Form with your required sessions and preferred start date, and return this with the accompanying fee of £50 to the school office. We will then send a confirmation letter, if those sessions are available. If the sessions you require are not available your fee will be returned.

Prior to starting, you and your child can attend a number of settling in sessions, typically two or three, where you will meet your child’s key worker.
