Cyril Jackson has 60 Nursery part time places available.

Part time (morning) sessions run from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.

Full time sessions run from 9:00am until 3:30pm

Part time Nursery places are offered without charge. Full time places are available to those who qualify for the 30 free hours scheme. If you are not eligible for 30 hour funding, and wish to pay for an afternoon place, this is charged at £25.50 per afternoon and invoiced at the beginning of each term.

We will try our best to meet parental preferences for full or part time places, however, if demand exceeds availability for preferences, we will use the below criteria to allocate places accordingly.
