Nursery places at Little Ecclesbourne

Our Nursery is a wonderful place for your child to start their education.

Every 3-4 year old is entitled to 15 hours nursery education. At Ecclesbourne Primary School, this is offered as 3 hours per day. These 15 hours will be made up as either 5 morning sessions or 5 afternoon sessions. The morning sessions run from 8.30-11.30am and the afternoon sessions run from 12.15-3.15pm. We do not offer a mix and match approach; you have to choose 5 morning or 5 afternoons. We will always aim to give you your first choice, subject to availability.

As you may know, some families may be eligible for 30 hours free childcare.  At Ecclesbourne Primary School, this is offered as 5 full days from 8.45-3.15pm with a top up charge to cover the lunch period from 11.30-12.15pm. This lunch cover is charged at £12.50 per week.
