Session Times & Pricing


All children are entitled to 15 hours free early years education starting the term after their 3rd birthday. Some families will be entitled to 30 hours of free early year’s education. To check your eligibility please go to:

At Priors Hall Nursery 30 hour funding is offered across our ten nursery sessions Monday – Friday. 15 hours can be used across five morning or five afternoon sessions. The funding is split across 38 weeks per year in line with the school term dates.

Our nursery is also aligned to the school day and we provide funded sessions during the times listed below for a maximum of two three hour sessions. There is a closure in between the daily sessions to accommodate a contractual break for keyworkers. You are able to book your child a place in our optional lunch club from 11:45 - 12:30 (subject to availability).

Nursery Sessions:

Mornings: 8.45am – 11.45 am

Afternoons: 12.30pm – 3.30pm


We do offer separate Wrap-Around Care which includes a Breakfast Club, Lunch Club and Teatime Club. More information on this can be found here: ‘wrap-around care’  

If your child is eligible for 15 hours of universal funding, this can be taken in the following ways:  

  • 5 x morning sessions  8:45-11:45 


  • afternoon sessions  12:30-3:30 

If your child is eligible for 30-hour extended funding:  

  • 5 x morning sessions - 8:45 to 11:45


  • 5 x afternoon sessions - 12:30 to 3:30

Lunch Club will be from 11:45 to 12:30 and this is a separate session that cannot be included in any government funding. If you would like to collect your child and take them home from 11:45-12:30, you are able to do so. 


Paid for sessions from a child's third birthday are subject to availability.


Nursery term dates align with school dates excluding allocated home visiting days which take place at the start of September.


Nursery Lunch Club - Food and Care

Children can attend our optional Nursery Lunch Club (11:45 - 12:30) at a cost of £7.00 per child per day to cover the staffing. Children are able to bring a packed lunch or book on for a hot meal for an additional £2.30 provided by Bridget Watts Coffee Ltd. Please book on for Nursery Lunch Club and the school meals via the My Child at School app. If you do not wish for your child to attend our Nursery Lunch Club and have 30 hours funding they will need to be collected at 11:45 and dropped back off at 12:30.
