Bletchingley Village Nursery – extended hours.

Bletchingley Village Nursery are very pleased to be extending their hours and to offer the local community up to 30 hours free childcare. The nursery will be open between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday. Parents will be able to book morning or full day sessions for their children.

Bletchingley Village primary school and nursery is an inclusive, values led community with a specialist Centre for children with speech, language and communication needs. The school and nursery are set in beautiful, spacious grounds, including nature gardens, mini-allotments and all weather play areas.

The nursery children learn and develop through imaginative and creative play, interwoven with short, structured adult-let sessions based on Development Matters, the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Pre-reading, writing and numeracy skills are immersed into these activities preparing your child for school life

“The children who have come through our nursery clearly demonstrate a better start for their life in school, in terms of resilience, independence and early literacy and numeracy skills.”                          Mrs D Gregori, Acting Headteacher

The nursery children enjoy a summer term trip to the British Wildlife Centre and enjoy visits from a variety of professionals, including the fire brigade and paramedics. They take part in the Christmas Nativity play performing with and for the whole school community.

 “My daughter really enjoyed her time at the nursery, spending valuable time with children her own age, learning to communicate and socialise…she became familiar with school life, learnt basic reading skills and was well prepared for her next step in a reception class” Jess, Parent

The NEW extended nursery has 30 hours free childcare places available from January 2019. Please contact the school directly to check if your child is eligible. The nursery also takes private bookings for those ineligible for government funding, subject to availability.
