Welcome to the Little Chestnuts Afternoon Nursery

Little Chestnuts Afternoon Nursery offers a range of activities with the nursery teacher who will continue to work in class each afternoon.  Qualified assistants will also work with the children.

Little Chestnuts is a great introduction to school life giving the children an opportunity to become familiar with having lunch and staying in a safe and stimulating learning environment.

The sessions are held from 12 noon until 3pm, and are available Monday to Friday.

The session begins when the children have their lunch.  Parents can choose to provide a packed lunch or purchase a hot meal from our caterers.  When they have finished lunch they have structured play activities in the early years garden until 1pm. 

After registration the children can access child /adult led planned activities according to the Early Years Framework for nursery aged children. Throughout the week activities such as art and craft, drawing, cookery, computer, sand and water play, imaginative and construction play, painting and music will be planned, as well as early literacy and numeracy games.  Towards the end of the session there is a playtime in the main or adventure playground followed by story time.  At 3pm the children are collected.

You may choose the number of sessions you wish your child to attend each week, and may also book on an ad hoc basis – subject to availability.  Priority is given to working parents.

The cost is £18.00 per session (12 noon to 3pm).
