Free Early Education and Childcare


From September 2017 funding for free early education entitlement places is changing.

In addition to the universal offer of 15 hours free early education entitlement most working parents of three and four year old children will be eligible for an additional 15 hours per week - giving them a total of 30 hours free childcare.

The new 30 hours free childcare is intended to support working parents with the cost of childcare and enable parents, where they wish, to return to work or to work additional hours.

For more information visit:


At Gainsborough Nursery we offer both 15 and 30 hours places, subject to availability. With an option of purchasing additional hours.


Nursery session times for September 2018 are as follows:

Morning Sessions   8.50 am – 11.50 am

Full-day Sessions   8.50 am – 3.10 pm (including an additional 30 minutes of lunch time cover)


We current have a limited number of places available in our Nursery for 3 and 4 year olds.


Please contact the main school office for more information or to make an appointment to visit the Nursery.
