THE WILLINGTON NURSERY
Work is currently underway on creating a fresh, warm, learning environment for our youngest Willingtonians and plans are now in place for a formal launch in March. Over the course of this Autumn term, we have been working with a nursery consultant and recruiting members of staff to be in charge of the Nursery. We are now pleased to announce the structure of this exciting new provision for Willington:
Places on Offer
The places will be offered full-time to be taken five days a week. Children who are aged 3 by 31st August are eligible to join the nursery.
The Nursery Day
The nursery will be open from 8.20am to 3.15pm daily, term time only. There will be an early drop off at 8.00am and a later pick up at 4.00pm at an additional cost, if the need arises.
Fees for full-time places will be charged in line with our Reception class, which is currently £4,455 per term. This fee includes a midmorning snack and a hot lunch. Our Early Years are registered with Merton Council for the Nursery Education Grant, which is worth up to 15 hours per week of free education (up to and including the term children turn 5).
The Entry Process
Register your child by visiting: www.willingtonschool.co.uk/registration. All children registered will be invited to a nursery session in the March prior to the September of joining and offers will be sent following these sessions. Priority will be given to current siblings and children of staff. If you have already registered your child with us for entry into Reception and would now like to apply for the nursery, please complete another registration form and select the option to transfer the fee from the Reception registration to the Nursery registration.
