Our School Nursery

Nursery Provision


The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework is comprised for seven Areas of Learning and Development. These are divided into three Prime and four Specific areas and it is these Areas of Learning that underpin all teaching and learning at Askwith Nursery, effectively preparing children for starting primary school.


Throughout the day, the children have access the indoor and outdoor provision, alongside working in small focus group sessions for short periods of time. This ensures that the children make excellent progress in the seven Areas of Learning and are prepared for starting school. 


At Askwith Nursery, all children have access to a fresh school cooked meal, the school menu can be found here and this changes termly. 

Nursery Admissions

Children are able to join Askwith Primary School Nursery the term following their third birthday.

The nursery is part of the school so is only open during school term times, term dates can be found here
All children over the age of 3 are entitled to 15 hours universal childcare, which equates to 5 x 3 hour sessions at Askwith nursery. The morning session is 9.00am – 12.00pm, lunchtime is 12.00pm – 12.30pm, and the afternoon session is 12.30pm – 3.30pm. Nursery children are also eligible to access Breakfast Club from 8.00am (£2.30 per session) and Cedar Club (after school) until 5.30pm (costs can be found here).

The cost of supervision for the 30 minutes at lunchtime is £2.00. Children may bring a packed lunch or have a school lunch, the cost of a school lunch is £2.30 (plus the cost of supervision = £4.10) The children eat their school lunch in the classroom and are helped to eat by the staff and are encouraged to try new food. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies. Some of our fees will be changing in September, details of this can be found here

In addition to the 15 hours, if there is space parents may also book extra sessions, an extra 3 hour session is £10.50 and should be booked in advance for the whole term.

From September 2017, the government introduced 30 hours extended childcare entitlement. Families who fulfil the criteria will be able to claim a further 15 hours funded childcare, up to 30 hours. Please ask for details of how to claim the extended childcare. We hope to be able to provide all families with the childcare they need, but places at Askwith Primary School Nursery are limited, so please register your child as soon as possible. Please complete and return the attached form.
