2-3 Year Olds
2-3 Year Olds
At Templars Academy we take the free early education and childcare funding of 15 hours for children age two and over. These funded nursery places are available the term after your child turns two.
We are also happy for those not entitled to the funding to pay for nursery sessions from your child's second birthday.
We like our two year old's to do a minimum of 3 sessions over three days, as we feel this gives the child a better chance to settle and also allows our staff to get to know the child better.
Our nursery is open 5 full days. Nursery session times are: 8.30am - 11.30am or 12pm - 3pm. With a full school day being 8.30am till 3pm.
Children can use their 15 hours funding across the week
- 3 or 5 morning sessions
- 3 or 5 afternoon sessions
- 3 or 5 full days (Additional sessions are charged at £10)
The government funding covers the 6 hours your child attends our setting daily. This does not include the 30-minute lunchbreak. However, if you wish your child to stay for lunch, there is a small lunchtime supervision fee (in the Academic Year 2023-2024 it is £2). This is payable weekly or termly via parentmail. The lunchtime supervision fee is different from the money you pay for your child’s dinner. The lunchtime supervision fee covers the cost of qualified staff looking after your child during the non-funded 30 minutes lunch break between 11.30-12.00 There is an option for your child to be picked up and taken home for lunch between 11.30-12.00, in which case the lunchtime supervision fee does not apply to you.
