Nursery Admissions - September 2024

 If you would like to send your child to Windhill21 Nursery, or would like to know more about our creative, happy and successful Nursery, please contact the school office on 01279 696850 or email to arrange a visit.


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

We offer morning, afternoon or all day sessions.  The session times are:-

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)

All children are expected to attend a minimum of 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions per week.  This is covered by the free 15 hours Nursery funding which all children are entitled to.

In addition, Windhill21 offer a flexible approach which enables parents to apply for a limited number of all-day places on a paid basis.  The first 15 hours of the all day sessions is covered by the 15 hour Nursery funding.  Any additional hours are either covered by 30 hour funding (for working parents only) or charged at a cost of £5.50 per hour.

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. Payment will be required at the start of each half term and no refunds will be made for sessions when your child is absent.
