At Wagtails Nursery, your child will thrive in a happy, nurturing space.
Through fun-filled nursery days, they will develop a ‘can-do’ attitude and progress at their own pace. Experienced and highly qualified teachers will provide the very best interactions and opportunities for learning.
Your child will enjoy a naturally light and spacious playroom with cosy alcoves for small group play. They will explore a sheltered playground, beautiful wild forest garden, kitchen, IT suite, playground for running and a hall for gym and dance.
There are term-time or year around sessions, with flexible hours and no top up fees or restrictions for funded-only hours.
We are delighted to have our nursery in the grounds of the award-winning St Paul’s Primary School.

It’s a great way of seeing what your child is doing at nursery and a fabulous starting point of conversation for your and your child.

It’s your choice.

Regardless of whether your child is registered for school day or working day sessions, you can choose for them to attend either our term-time dates of 38 weeks or our year around alternative of 48 weeks per annum.

Any governent funding will then be split over 38 or 48 weeks.

At Wagtails we are registered to accept 2 year old funding for up to 15 hours per week on a 38 week term-time basis.

If your child attends for 48 weeks this will entitle them to 11.87 hours per week.

Many children are eligible for this funding which must be applied for by the parent.

Once you receive a reference number, please pass this onto the nursery so you will not be charged.

You may use this funding for any sessions and there are no top up fees charged.

Any hours over the funded hours will be charged at the normal rate of £5.75.

The term after your child turn 3 they will automatically be eligible for 15 hours free funded session per week for 38 weeks of term-time attendance.

If they attend for 48 weeks then they will receive 11.87 hours each week.

The forms will be completed by the nursery and you will be asked to check and sign your agreement.

This may be used in conjunction with the extended hours for eligible children to total 30 hours each week.

The funded hours may be used for any session and no top up fees are charged.

Any hours over the funded hours will be charged at the normal rate of £5.75

The term after your child’s 3rd birthday there is an extra 15 hours funding available each week of a 38 week term-time attendance.

If your child attends for 48 weeks then the hours for funding will be less each week. 11.87 hours each week free.

To be eligible, both parents must work at least 16 hours per week.

You are responsible for applying for this funding the term before you wish to use it.

Once you have been issued a reference number, this must be forwarded to the nursery.

This is added onto the standard 15 hours funding which is available to everyone, which is where the term 30 hours funding comes from.
