Juggling work and life can sometimes be challenging. Available support with the costs of childcare can make this easier.  

Here at St Michaels, we want you to be aware of government support for your children attending our Nurseries or Wrap around Care Childcare Provision. 

Childcare Choices | 30 Hours Childcare, Tax-Free Childcare and More | Help with Costs | GOV.UK

Childcare Choices are changing and we are currently reviewing our provision to see if we are in a position to meet a potential increase in demand for our nursery. Please register your interest for more details about the upcoming expansion of childcare support

St Michaels Nursery Questionnaire

At St Michael’s C of E Academy our vision is ‘The future we create every day’ which underpins the curriculum that we provide for our wonderful pupils. We believe that all of our children are unique and aspire for them to live their life to the fullest. Our children are safe and happy in our Nursery. They spend their days sharing, talking, singing, problem solving, being playful and questioning the world in which they live. Through play, they practice new skills, investigate the world around them and challenge themselves to succeed. Our team of expert practitioners nurture the children’s character, building the foundations of confidence, resilience and a love of learning.

Our Nursery is open between 8.30am and 3.00pm. During this time parents and carers may access up to 30 hours of free entitlement for Nursery aged 3-4 children, if they meet the entitlement criteria.

Time slots are of no less than three hours in any one day.

Children may order a school lunch at a charge of £2.50 per day (increasing to £2.75 per day from September 2024) or bring a packed lunch if their time falls during a lunch period.

In addition to the free entitlement of either 15 or 30 hours, parents and carers may book additional Nursery sessions at a charge of £4.50 per hour as of 1st April 2024 and £4.75 as of September 2024 for 3 and 4 year olds.

From September 2024 we will be offering 2 year old places in our nursery. Nursery fees are £5.25 per hour for 2 year olds.
