2 Year Old Provision
We are excited to say that we opened our provision for 2 year old children in September 2015.
We will have 24 spaces; 8 will be reserved for those eligible to 15 free hours each week and these children will be guaranteed a place in our nursery for 3 and 4 year old children, although not necessarily in the same morning or afternoon session. To find out if you are eligible for a free 2 year old space phone Family Information Services on 020 8891 7969 or have a look on Richmond’s websitehttp://www.richmond.gov.uk/two_year_old_funding There are 16 paying places available.
There will be 12 spaces in the morning session, and 12 in the afternoon session. The ratio is 1 adult to 4 children at all times.
The two year olds have their own indoor and outdoor space in ‘Little Windham’, so that we are really able to concentrate on their needs as two year olds. It is set up in the Windham way to make sure that we provide the very best for your children, we will echo the principles of our ‘outstanding’ 3 and 4 year old provision, but for slightly littler people. The 2 year old children also have opportunities to use the sensory room, soft play area, sensory garden and access our Forest School provision each week.
Children will be allocated a place to attend five morning sessions each week, or five afternoon sessions each week. If your child is not quite ready for this you can choose how many sessions you wish to attend as your child builds towards a five session week, but unfortunately we would still have to charge for the five sessions.
Free and paid for places in each session will be designated following the admissions criteria for Nursery Places in the London Borough of Richmond.
Fees for 2017/2018
Parents will be able to pay for their child to attend the 2 year old provision at a cost of £137 for each week. Parents are asked to pay for the term upfront and commit to an academic year in the provision in their contract. A term’s notice is required if you want your child’s place to cease.
We accept childcare vouchers as part or full payment for nursery fees. Please contact the school office for further details.
The fees at Windham are eligible for Early Education Funding (EEF) for further information on this funding please visit the Londoan Borough of Richmond Upon Thames website
Unfortunately, children who pay for a place will not be guaranteed a place in our provision for three and four year old children. They will be required to apply for nursery via the application process for this provision.
We are now accepting applications. Please get your application in as soon possible as the first places will be allocated from April 2018.
