· The morning session ends at 11.45am when those children who stay all day (30hrs) have their Packed Lunches (11.45am-12.15pm) which they bring from home before continuing the day with the afternoon session.

· The Nursery closes each day at 3.15pm. Our doors open from 3.00pm and all children should be collected by 3.15pm

· We have access to the school grounds and facilities and also join the rest of the school for important occasions and celebrations and for school masses in church. 

· All Nursery sessions are Teacher-led.


Every child will be allocated a Key Worker who will make sure they are always settled, happy and learning.

Parents & Carers will be able to contact the Key Worker by email and at morning and afternoon door openings in person.
