The nursery is open exclusively during term time from 8:00am until 5:00pm. Parents therefore save by only paying for 39 weeks a year, not for 52 weeks – as many nurseries insist upon.
We know that it takes a community to raise a child!
As a result of this ‘term-time only’ approach, we accommodate for many families with a teaching or nursing background. In these cases, sharing the care and education of your little ones with parents, child-minders and grandparents will enrich their physical and mental growth. We’ve seen that children will settle in quickly and can really thrive with the shared approach that we take.
Special Holiday Arrangements ?
Permission has also been granted by OFSTED for us to run a holiday service when the need arises. It means that we can offer a ‘Holiday Club’ for you during most closure weeks if required.
Please contact us if you are interested in finding out more about Cottam Nursery School’s Holiday Clubs over the closure weeks, or for any special arrangements.
