Starting at Squirrels

Squirrels Nursery accepts children from the age of three, up until they start their Reception year.

Pre pre-school children (children turning 3 years old between 1st September and 31st August)
We recommend that pre pre-school children attend the nursery for a minimum of two afternoon sessions per week during the school year. Pre pre-school children do not attend lunch.

Pre-school children (children turning 4 years old between 1st September and 31st August)
We recommend that pre-school children attend the nursery for a minimum of three sessions in the Autumn term and increase to four sessions in the Spring and Summer Terms.

Children may attend morning sessions with or without lunch, or they may attend in the afternoons or stay all day. This depends on availability and the age of the child.

We are open Monday to Friday throughout The Paragon school year. Click here for term dates.

We accept the Early Years entitlement vouchers which are applicable until the end of the term after the child turns five. We will claim the grant on your behalf.

Once a child attends Squirrels full-time, the school sibling discount applies.

The caring environment ensures a warm, family atmosphere where all children have a secure start to their education.

Seeing our child develop into a fine little person this year was priceless. The balance between activities and learning in Squirrels is great.
