Free Sessions

Free sessions for 3 and 4 year olds.

Free early learning gives children a great start in life. Through learning and playing with other children in a safe and structured environment, they’ll have a head start when they begin school.

All three and four year olds in England are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday).

Free early education places are available the Nursery.
