We have two nursery classes at Windhill21 – morning and afternoon. The session times for each class are as follows:

Morning - 8.30am until 11.30am (15 hours per week)

Afternoon - 12.30pm until 3.30pm (15 hours per week)

All day – 8.30am to 3.30pm (35 hours per week)

Each nursery class has places for 30 children.

Windhill21 has one intake into its nursery classes which is the September following a child’s third birthday. Entry into the nursery class in September 2024 will be for those children born between 1st September 2020 to 31st August 2021.

All children shall attend a minimum of 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions per week.

In addition, Windhill21 will be offering an approach which will enable parents to apply for a limited number of all-day places in our Nursery on a paid basis.  Alternatively, it will be possible to use 30-hour funding entitlement (for working parents) towards the cost of this provision.

Parents will be invoiced, in advance, at the beginning of each half term for any paid sessions, and if 30-hour funding is used, for any additional hours not covered by the funding. The school requires one month’s notice from parents for any changes to the sessions originally allocated.

From January 2024 the cost of the additional hours will be charged at £5.50 per hour. Payment will be required at the start of the term and no refunds will be made for sessions when your child is absent.

To apply for a place at our Nursery in September 2024, you will need to complete our online application form using the link below once it is live on Monday 15th November:


Allocation of a Nursery place is strictly subject to the applicant’s guarantee that the first 15 hours of free childcare funding will be directed to this school.  This guarantee should be made on the Parent Declaration Form which will be in your welcome pack. 

In the event of more applications than available places the Governing Body will maintain a continuing interest list (waiting list). These and late applications will go onto this list in a position determined by the criteria.  If a place becomes available in the school, it will be offered to the child that best meets the published admission rules at the earliest possible opportunity.
