Lime Tree offers morning nursery sessions - 15 hours a week - 9am-12pm five mornings a week. These sessions are fully funded by the government from the term after children turn 3 years old.

During the session children will engage in experiences and activities planned around their interests to move them on to the next step in their learning. As part of the school ethos of ‘healthy body, brain and heart ‘children have an exercise session every day and try a range of healthy foods at snack time. The children are encouraged to learn outside and inside and use all of the school’s facilities to give them a successful foundation for learning.

Currently the morning session runs from 9.00am to 12.00pm

The school has one main intake in September, although if there are any places available during the year they will be allocated for a January and post-Easter start date based on the standard admissions criteria. Children are eligible for a nursery place the term after they turn three years old. The deadline to apply for a September 2021 place is Friday 6th March.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 it is unlikely the school will able to hold any Nursery open events. The school will be posting an online video tour to give parents a view of the school, and the Early Years Leader and Nursery Teacher will be holding online google meetings in early January. If you child is offered a place they will hopefully be able to visit nearer their start date.

The online Nursery meetings will be held as follows:

Wednesday 12th January 2.15pm

Wednesday 20th January 2.15pm
