Welcome to Grovelands Acorns Nursery. Children from 2-4 years of age

Nursery Admission Process

Welcome to Grovelands Acorns Nursery. We take children from 2-4 years of age. If you would like your child to join our wonderful Nursery Provision, then the following procedures apply. To make an appointment to come and have a look round our setting, please call us on 01323 840062. Applications forms are available from the Nursery.

We charge a non-refundable registration fee of £30 per application. Once we have received your completed application form, we will book your child in.

A welcome pack containing all the information you need, including a confirmation of sessions booked, uniform, fees etc will be sent out within two weeks of receiving your completed form. Whilst most children join us in September, if spaces are available we do take children in January and April.

If you are in receipt of 2yr or 30hr funding, we also ask that you supply a copy of your letter confirming your eligibility. All children from the term after they turn 3 years of age are automatically entitled to receive 15hrs free childcare. We also accept childcare vouchers.

Our session times are as follows:

  • Morning Session 8.40am-11.40am
  • Lunch club am- 11:40am - 12.15pm
  • Afternoon session 12.15pm-3.15pm

Our sessions are charged at £18 per session if you are not eligible for funding. Lunch club is charged at £3 per session, with the option for a hot meal at £2.75 per sesson.
