Heymann Primary School opened a brand new nursery (Pre-School) in January 2014. The nursery (pre-school) is in a purpose built classroom in our Infant building and has its own enclosed outdoor play area.
There are many advantages to using our school based nursery:
- Led by a qualified teacher
- Supported by well qualified Teaching Assistants
- Housed in a purpose built room in our new Infant building
- Outdoor play area with brand new equipment
- Access to all the school equipment and facilities – interactive whiteboard, large school hall, sensory room.
- Fully funded places, five 3-hour sessions
- Access to our school Wrap Around Care services providing child care from 7:30am – 6:00pm
- Continuous education from 3-11 years (subject to accepted application for a reception place)
The nursery has 39 places based on 2 sessions per day. Places are available in the year before your child starts Reception. A limited number of places may be offered to younger children, who are over the age of 3. On admission parents are asked to choose between 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions. Additionally, we offer wrap-around care, enabling your child to stay all day for an additional cost, or with use of the 30-hour funding. Whenever possible first preference of sessions will be offered, but preferences will be allocated subject to availability and are not guaranteed.
- The morning session is from 8:30am until 11:30am.
- The afternoon session is from 12:15pm until 3:15pm.
- These times fit closely with the main school times:
- Infants (KS1) 8:40 – 3:10 and Juniors (KS2) 8:50 – 3:20
