NURSERY SESSIONS/EXTENDED SERVICES

Nursery sessions we offer at New Bridge Nursery School

All three and four year old children are entitled to attend a nursery setting for 15 hours. We also offer places to children of parents who qualify for 30 hours.

Please find below an overview of what we offer here at New Bridge for both the 15 and 30 hour entitlements. 

15hrs Free Funding Your child will attend 5 mornings or 5 afternoons together with one extra session to make up the 15 hour entitlement. This means that children stay for one full day per week. Parents/carers are asked to bring a packed lunch for their child. You can request mornings or afternoon sessions and these will be offered in date of birth order. If we cannot allocate your requested session you will have the opportunity to accept the alternative session or stay on our waiting list.

Session times are:- 

Morning 9.00am - 11.30am
Afternoon 12.30pm - 3.00pm

Please note there is a charge of  £4.25 to cover the cost of the extra hour of childcare on their full day.

Our induction program enables children to have a smooth transition working towards their 15 hours. If your child is still unsettled at the end of their induction, we may advise that your child continues working towards their full hours. However, it is your entitlement and therefore your child can start their 15 hours straight away if you wish. 

Should your child become entitled to the 30 hour funding mid-year they will need to swap groups and key worker.

We are currently not able to offer flexibility on the 15 hours e.g. 2 days and a half days

30 hour Free Funding depending on eligibility  We are delighted to be able to offer 30 hours of free nursery education for eligible children at New Bridge Nursery School. Parents must apply to HMRC direct for their 30 hour entitlement via their website click HERE. 

The  HMRC code is valid for 3 months. HMRC will need you to RECONFIRM every 3 months (they will notify you normally a month BEFORE your eligibility to date runs out).  You will need to log back in to your HMRC Childcare Account, and go to ‘SECURE MESSAGES’ then RECONFIRMATION’ section, should take 4 mins.  Your CODE will not change, but your eligibility to date will extend a further 3 months.

New Bridge offer the 30 hours on a full time basis; 9am - 3pm term time only.

The lunch hour is included within the 30 hour entitlement and therefore you do not need to pay for your child to attend Lunch Club.

Children who attend Snowflakes who are eligible for 30 hours may be offered this. Assessment will be on a case by case basis.

Our induction program enables children to have a smooth transition working towards their 30 hours. If your child is still unsettled at the end of their induction, we may advise that your child reduces the hours and works towards the 30 hours until they are ready. However, it is your entitlement and therefore your child can start full time straight away if you wish

Your child will be assigned to one key group when they join New Bridge and attend the 30 hours within the same key group and class

Extra Sessions  If you wish for your child to attend nursery above their 15 hour entitlement and you are not entitled to the government funding of 30 hours, you will be able to pay for the extra 15 hours.

Paid for extra sessions will be converted should your child become entitled to 30 hour funding
