ABOUT EARLY EXPLORERS

Foundation Stage 1 Hours

Every child is entailed to 15 hours of FS1 education per week, to be taken as half days between the hours of 8.30am – 11.30am and 12.30pm 3.30pm. In exceptional circumstances, parents and Careers may also be able to purchase additional hours at a cost of £4 per hour.  Parents and Careers will be expected to pay for the hours at the start of the week.  Please speak to a member of the nursery team for further information.

Children who are entitled to the 30 hours funding and staying for a full day will attend school between the hours of 8:45am and 2:45pm.  If children in the 30 hours sessions have older siblings in the school and parents would like their children to finish at 3:15pm, we are happy to provide the extra time without any additional charge. Children in this setting can either bring in a packed lunch or receive a school dinner at the cost of £2.50 per day.
