Nursery

Castleward Spencer Academy will be opening a nursery from September 2021. The nursery will be open from 8:45-3:30pm each day. This flexible approach to nursery provision has been developed with a working family in mind. Every child is eligible to 15 hours of free nursery provision. However, they may also be entitled to additional free nursery provision through the governments ‘Extended Hours Funding’ which could entitle them to a total of 30 hours. To see if you are able to access the 30 hour funded places, please click on the following link: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/

‘Wraparound’ childcare can also be provided, both before and after school for an additional fee. Please contact the school for further details.
