Nursery Admissions

Nursery

From September 2017 we are bringing Little Fir Tree Nursery into our family and will be running just one nursery provision on the school site.  We will be welcoming children to join our nursery from the age of 2 until they reach school age. Please note that having a place at River Mead Nursery does not entitle a child to a place at River Mead School and you will need to follow guidelines set out by Wiltshire Council and apply as per their current criteria.

We will be offering a nursery which closely matches the school calendarIt will also be available on selected days during the holidays and form part of our holiday club provision.

The sessions on offer are:

For those children in nursery over the lunchtime, freshly prepared food will be provided from the school kitchen at an additional cost of £2.30 per session or you may provide a healthy lunch box.

Additional Holiday Care is available operating on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday over six holiday weeks per year, currently charged at £17 per pupil per day from 08.30-17.30.

Free Entitlement for all children starts the term after their third birthday and your child will then be eligible for a maximum of 15 hours of Free Entitlement.

The Government is introducing an extended offer of 30 hours free entitlement to those children who are eligible for three year old funding and where parents meet the criteria.  If you would like to check your eligibility, please click here to visit the Childcare Choices website.
