Silver Circles

The children have the opportunity to access Silver circles which wraps around their usual nursery session and up until 5pm each day. The children meet for registration in the Library/Extended Provision Base Room where a register is taken before taking part in some ‘special’ activities.

The children then join in all activities on offer throughout the nursery along with the children who attend the nursery between 9am-12pm or 12pm-3pm. A light snack is provided by the nursery for the children during their session.

From 3pm through until 5pm the children continue to participate in a full range of activities across the early year’s curriculum accessing both indoor and outdoor areas.

Collection of children accessing extended hours from 3pm until 5pm is from the small covered entranceway on the right of the nursery building. Please ring the doorbell on the right and a staff member will let you in.

For all other drop off and collection times please speak directly to a staff member with regards to access arrangements.

Extended hours are booked on a half termly basis and invoices issued at the beginning of each half term based on parents requested sessions.

Silver circles offers the children the opportunity to participate in a range of fun activities, make new friendships and reinforce those made during their usual nursery session. It gives the children continuity of care during the day blending nursery education and childcare seamlessly and gives parents the option of accessing longer hours for work or social commitments.

There is a charge of £5.00 per hour for all extended provision between 9am-12pm and 12-3pm in line with the government 30-hour place funding. The charge for 8am-9am and 3pm-5pm is £6.00 per hour as this is outside the nursery’s core opening hours of 9am-3pm. The 8.30am early drop of charge is £3.00. This is the only session offering a half hour time slot.

Payments can be made by cash/cheque/ childcare vouchers or direct transfer into the school account. The account details are detailed on the invoice that parents receive. The nursery is also registered with HMRC to receive payments via the Tax Free Childcare scheme.

Cheques are made payable to Weston Way Nursery School.

All bookings are made through Mrs. Dymoke in the office.

If places are available children can have additional sessions to those booked, on a ‘drop in’ basis. Places must be booked in person to ensure we are able to accommodate requests and paid for at the time of booking.
