Welcome to Dines Green Community Academy Nursery Page
We are excited to be able provide a new flexible Nursery, more in keeping with busy, modern lives. This is an excellent opportunity to enable children to commence their education in close association with our school from the age of 3.
We understand that deciding on Nursery provision for your child is a challenging task for many parents, and many factors need to be taken into consideration. We aim to provide the best possible start to each and every child's educational career: promoting independence and confidence; monitoring and developing key personal and academic skills; celebrating and modelling core values and nurturing a love of learning. The skills and values that we promote will prepare every child for transition into Primary School.
Unlike other Early Years settings, Dines Green Academy Nursery is led by two fully qualified teachers, a nursery nurse and supported by two teaching assistants. We offer flexible provision and parents can choose sessions comprising of either morning or afternoon sessions or a combination of both. The sessions available are:
8.45am - 11.45am (3 hours)
12.15pm - 3.15pm (3 hours)
8.45am - 3.15pm (6.5 hours)
Pupils who stay all day will require a packed lunch and will receive the lunch half-hour - 11.45-12.15 - free of charge.
Every three year old is entitled to a maximum of 5 funded sessions, though parents may request additional sessions and pay a fee for the time over and above the funded hours.
30 hour funded sessions are also available; please call into the school office to find out more details.
'I would really recommend this nursery. Friendly staff and a great environment for children to grow.
I have sent all three of my children here and they loved every second. One of my children still attends nursery, my other two have moved up to the school full time and are thriving after such a great start.'
