Administration and School Times

We teach children from birth to 5 years. We strongly advise that children under 3 years of age attend a minimum of two sessions a week and children over 3 years a minimum of 3 sessions.


Opening times

We are open 8.30am till 4.30pm Monday to Thursday. Friday 8.30am till 1.30pm (We have permission to extend our hours significantly when demand is shown).

The school closes for 2 weeks at Christmas, 1 week at Easter and 3 weeks in the summer, as well as any bank holidays that may fall outside these weeks.

Children can attend all the time we are open or on a term time basis which roughly follows the local primary schools.



AFNS splits the children into three classes, Ducklings (birth - 2years old), Goslings (toddler - 3 years old) and Piglets (pre-school), each with different fee rates.

We accept EYEE funding (15 and 30 hours) for all 3+ children when eligible. The grant is deducted off the fees, with additional hours at our nursery rates.

 2 year old funding can also be accepted (Subject to EY conditions).

Most child care and government vouchers are accepted.

Discounts are given for active employed fire, police and NHS hospital staff.


Nutritious school lunches are available at £3.75 per day. Breakfast at £2.00 per day. These are prepared on the premises by our own qualified Cordon Bleu cook.
