Hydesville Tower Nursery is open from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm for 50 weeks of the year. However, school is open from 7.30 am during term time, for which there is a small additional charge (£1 for every 15 minutes). We are closed for a fortnight at Christmas and all Bank Holidays.
We have full-time and part-time places available for children aged three and four. Contact Admissions Manager Mrs Christine Phillips on 01922 624374 to discuss your needs.
Term Time Provision – 38 Weeks
From Sept 2016 – daily flat fee: £43.95 (£2,785 per term)
All three and four-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours of free early years education for 38 weeks a year starting from the term after the child turns three. Early years funding is allocated against the bill before any discount is calculated.
Our Nursery is very much a part of the school and has close links with Reception. As a result the Nursery follows the termly pattern of the school. This means that during term time the Nursery day is made up of:
|Time||Title||Description of Activities|
|8:00am-8:45am||Early Birds Club||Early risers join the fun at Nursery from 8:00am. Includes breakfast at 8:15am.|
|8:45am-3:25pm||Core Nursery Day||Focus on the Early Years curriculum through a combination of structured learning and child-initiated free play. Includes mid-morning milk and hot lunch at midday.|
|3:25pm-6:00pm||Twilight Club||Continue the fun with indoor and outdoor creative play, weather permitting. Includes tea at 4:30pm.|
The daily flat fee covers all of the above. Your child’s attendance at the Early Birds Club and Twilight Club are optional and fully flexible to suit your needs.
Holiday Time Provision – 12 Weeks
Daily flat fee: £36.00
Our Nursery is open for a further 12 weeks outside of school term time and you can choose for your child to attend as many sessions during those weeks as is suitable for your family, which could be all, none or any number in between. Our year-round provision is designed to be flexible and fair; you only pay for what you use. This approach supports working parents and keeps little ones stimulated and entertained during long school holidays. It makes life easier for our busy Nursery mums and dads and more fun for their children. Below is a sample list of activities for a typical Nursery week during the holiday period:
|Morning||Baking fairy cakes||Picnic and playtime in Walsall Arboretum||Making aeroplanes and tiaras||Trip to the cinema and lunch at Pizza Hut||Decorate a garden gnome to take home|
|Afternoon||Arts & craft Disney movie afternoon||Design a model car Make a keyring||Baking and decorating biscuits||Face painting||Making fruit kebabs Treasure hunt in the garden|
Children bring a packed lunch with them during holiday time, unless we are taking them out for lunch as part of the day’s activities. In these cases lunch is provided as part of the daily charge.
