Mini Matt's, our onsite school-based nursery has been open since the school opened in September 2015. We are a thriving and busy setting and have new children regularly joining our nursery family.
Our provision is for children from three years old. Children can join us following their third birthday. Parents are able to access up to 15 or 30 hours of Government funded sessions in the term following their third birthday. You will automatically be eligible for the 15hours but you must apply for the 30hrs please see below for details on applying.
We are open term time only from Monday to Friday between 8:00am-5:45pm. Sessions are in blocks and are charged at £4 per hour. Children are offered breakfast, snacks and a light tea time snack during the day. Lunches can either be packed lunches from home or a school meal can be purchased from our academy kitchen.
If you are interested in your child joining our setting, please do not hesitate to contact us and/or come and have a look around. Our virtual tour available in the 'About Us- Our School' section of the website and gives you an insight into our Nursery, the EYFS unit and the wider school.

When to apply
You can apply from when your child is 2 years and 36 weeks old.
You can apply outside of these recommended dates but you might not receive your code in time. You must have a valid code by the end of the month before a new term starts.
Check with your childcare provider to find out the exact date your 30 hours free childcare starts.
You have to reconfirm your eligibility every 3 months. If you apply more than 3 months before the term starts, you’ll have to reconfirm your eligibility in your account in order to keep your code valid.
If you are applying for 30 hours and someone else already claims Tax-Free Childcare for that child, your application will be unsuccessful.
