What We Offer
If you are eligible for free* early education, Little Larks Day Nursery can offer this in 5 hourly sessions:
Morning Session: 08.00 to 13.00 / Afternoon Session: 13.00 to 18.00 / Full Day: 08.00 to 18.00
You can sign up to use the 5 hour sessions in whatever combination works best for you, based on session availability. If you would like to, you can use the free hours as full days, which works out at two x 5 hour sessions per day. This means you can have 3 full days of childcare, completely free* during the 38 week period.
*Please note - food is not included and we charge £6 a day for our 'food package', which is breakfast, snacks, two course lunch and a light tea. This is not a compulsory charge; however, if you do not wish us to provide this you will need to send your child with a healthy packed lunch and tea as an alternative.
Additional Sessions and Full-time
Additional sessions over and above the free 15 or 30 hours are available at a cost of £52.59 per full day (2 sessions), or £30.39 per half day (1 session) and includes all food.
