At Little Farlington, we provide year-round nursery care for children from the age of six months to school age. We are open Monday to Friday, from 8am until 6pm, for 51 weeks of the year.* Early drop-off (from 7.30am) is available each day, at an extra charge of £6 per day and by prior arrangement.

* The nursery will be closed for the period between Christmas and New Year, and on all Bank Holidays. In addition, the nursery will be closed for five staff training days, which are allocated throughout the year.

Our Sessions & Fees

One session at Little Farlington is a full day.

A minimum of two sessions is required for all children up to their pre-Reception year, when this will rise to three sessions. Children attending the nursery setting on a full-time basis will receive a 10% discount. This applies to any child attending Little Farlington from Monday to Friday.

**Progression between stages is dependent on the individual child’s development, and movement into the next group will not always correspond directly with their chronological age.

We offer 15 hours of Government funding for 3 and 4-year-olds. All settings that are open for 51 weeks per year are permitted to stretch this entitlement across the year, which equates to 11 hours' free funded childcare per week. Please note that this funding does not cover any additional extras or services, such as specialist teachers, Forest School, lunches, snacks, milk, wipes or nappies. These costs are included in the daily session rate balanced over the year.
