Pre-School Provision

St Alban’s Nursery has been offering high quality pre-school care for over 25 years. We pride ourselves on offering flexible and affordable childcare; not limiting parents to choose between mornings, afternoons or set days but instead allowing people to choose childcare which suits their individual situations.

Our paid childcare provision includes:

  • Free 15 hours childcare for 3 & 4 year old (funded by the local authority)
  • Free 30 hours childcare (eligibilty criteria aply) for 3 & 4 years olds (funded by the local authority)
  • Additional paid sessions available for all 3 & 4 year olds at a highly competitive rate. 
  • ALL SESSIONS AT ST ALBAN’S NURSERY ARE TERM TIME ONLY. Wrap around care and holiday provision is provided on site by First Friends Private Day Nursery.

Wrap around care and holiday club

We are extremely lucky to have our very own on-site breakfast, after school and holiday club run by First Friends Private Day Nursery. This means that we are able to support working parents with their childcare from 7.30am to 6pm across the whole year. We work closely with the team at First Friends to ensure that the learning opportunities offered to the children are closely linked to the learning taking place in school, and 30 hour funding can be split between both providers.

Pre-school playgroups and parent sessions

In addition to our childcare offer, we also run weekly playgroups and Peep sessions for families within the local community.  These are free groups which provide advice and guidance to parents, whilst offering fun activities for the children to access within a safe and happy environment.  Information about our Peep group can be found here

For more information or to book a space for one of our groups, please contact school on 01332 673823 and ask to speak to the nursery teacher.

Due to current COVID regulations we are currently unable to offer our playgroups and parent sessions.
