Offering Very Flexible Outstanding Childcare
We are open 7.30am until 6.00pm, 5 days a week, 51 weeks a year.
Early Years Provision Vouchers are now available for 2 year olds (depending on your circumstances), and for all 3 and 4 year olds. These come into effect the term after your child’s 3rd birthday.
Funding from Cumbria County Council is available for parents/carers wishing to choose Smile as their nursery education provider. This is an entitlement of 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year. We can be very flexible and can in fact stretch this to cover 51 weeks.
The session structure is flexible so we suggest speaking to us to work out what will best suit you.
The curriculum is topic based and chosen to enable children to work towards the learning goals of the foundation stage curriculum which is a 2year programme completed by the end of reception.
