As you are aware, there have been many changes to nursery funded places this year.  One of these changes is that all parents/carers must complete the ‘Early Years Parent Declaration 2017/2018’.  This is the form for parents to claim the 15 free hours funded by Trafford council.  This must be completed by all parents, whether you are claiming 15 or 30 hours.

In order to claim these 15 free hours, parents do need to apply for them on the Trafford council website.  Trafford will then send you confirmation of these hours, which then needs to be passed on to school.

Please could you check that you have completed this form for your child and email your confirmation to the school email  admin@stmatthewsce.co.uk, as soon as possible.

If you have not yet completed this application, please follow the following link and complete as soon as you can https://www.trafford.gov.uk/residents/children-and-families/early-education/secure/early-years-parent-declaration-2017-18.aspx

 

If you would like any further information or have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to come and ask.

Our school Nursery is part of our Early Years Foundation Stage along with our Reception class. Our Nursery building is located at the back of the school and can be identified by our very colourful shutters! Nursery enjoy taking part in many activities including outdoor play, educational trips, messy activities and a range of celebrations from different cultures. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and have lots of fun!

Children in our Nursery learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside. If you would like to look at our EYFS prospectus, please see the link below.

Admissions

The Nursery unit is able to offer 52 part-time places consisting of 26 morning places and 26 afternoon places. We are usually able to offer some places as full time places if parents pay for “top up” sessions. Offers of places in the Nursery are in line with our admissions policy.

Parents who wish to apply for a place in the Nursery should contact school for an application form. The children’s names are placed onto the Nursery waiting list as soon as we receive the completed application form. Due to the demand for places, parents are advised to apply as early as possible. Nursery places may be offered earlier if there are vacancies.

If you are interested or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to pop into our school office or give us a ring.
