Elmer's Pre-school Nursery (3 - 4 year olds)

When can my child start at Bewdley Primary School Nursery?

Your child is able to start in our Elmer’s Nursery from the September after they are 3. 

If your child is aged 2 -3 then you might be interested in our nursery provision for younger children.  More information is available in a separate leaflet. 

Do you offer funded places?

Yes, we offer both 15 hour and 30 hour funded places. 

Eligibility for 30 hour funded places must be confirmed by 31st August for a September start, 31st December for a January start, or 31st March for an April start.

If you are eligible for a 30 hour funded place, it is your responsibility to reconfirm your details every three months. 

How are places allocated?

If we have more children interested in places than we are able to provide sessions for, children will be admitted according to our admission policy.  Please ask for further details.

Can my child come just one day a week?

The minimum number of sessions we offer per week is 2, spread over two days.  We do not offer a single day, or single session attendance pattern.

Children can access the school wrap-around from the term after their third birthday. This is available from 7.30am until 5.30pm.  Please ask if you would like more information about booking and costs. 

How much does the nursery cost?

All children are eligible for up to 15 hours (5 sessions) or up to 30 hours (10 sessions) of nursery sessions from the term after they are 3.  Up to 5 additional 3 hour sessions per week can be booked at a cost of £13.500 per 3 hour session. 

How do I pay for my sessions?

Invoices for additional sessions will be sent out each half term. 

You are able to split your funded sessions between childcare providers. 

We ask for payment within 14 days of the invoice.

What happens at lunchtime?

A healthy snack will be provided every morning and afternoon.  We ask parents for a contribution of £1.00 per week to cover this.

Children staying all day, or attending the afternoon session can either bring a packed lunch or book a school hot meal.  If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, then lunch will be provided free of charge.
