The Willow Tree Nursery School

Fees & Dates

Morning sessions run from 9am until 12.15pm and extended days from 9am until 3pm. Children attending an extended day bring their own healthy packed lunch to school. The teachers are always happy to suggest healthy food ideas to include in these.

Children normally begin at the nursery school on a part-time basis and two year olds are offered a three morning (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) place when they first join us. From the term following their third birthday children attend a minimum of five sessions. We encourage all children to join us for as many sessions as possible in their pre-school year. This is in order that they experience our full curriculum and are prepared for their transition to ‘big school’.

We hold regular ‘stay and play’ sessions for parents and carers as well as termly ‘garden days’ when children, parents and staff all work together in the garden. These events are always a great success and a wonderful opportunity to meet other families at the nursery school, chat to the teachers, look at our displays and the children’s scrapbooks, and to of course have a cup of tea and a cake!

At the end of the autumn term the children perform a ‘Christmas play’ to which all families and friends are invited, and our Sports Day or ‘Olympics’ takes place in Wendell Park towards the end of the summer term. In addition we hold our annual ‘Daddy’s breakfast’ in the spring term. A wide range of special days and festivals are celebrated throughout the school year.
