Lime Tree offers morning nursery sessions - 15 hours a week - 9am-12pm for five mornings. 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
