Welcome to Little Parrots
Our Nursery, in partnership with FISH, is open 50 weeks a year and offers wrap around care from 7:30 – 6 pm for 3 year olds. We are also now able to offer places to children from their 2nd birthday for 39 weeks of the year. Our EYFS provision is staffed by a team of highly experienced practitioners who strive to provide the best possible care and learning for our children. A distinctive feature of our Nursery provision is that it is led and staffed by a qualified teacher who is supported by a team of qualified nursery and early years practitioners. This high quality teacher-led provision ensures that children make the very best possible start in their journey to be life-long learners.

Government funding is only available for a maximum of 570 hours per academic year. Some children may be entitled to up to 1140 hours of government funding per academic year. However, we are able to sell additional sessions so that your child could be in the nursery for as long as you wish; the cost of additional sessions is as above.
Parents may use their 15/30 hours of government entitlement from the term after their child’s 3rd birthday, and/or purchase nursery hours from the term in which the child has their 3rd birthday.
Some children may be entitled to 2 year old funding of 15 hours per week up to a maximum of 570 hours per academic year. If you think you might be eligible please follow the link Childcare Choices.
