About MCPS Nursery 

Excellent care and education for children aged from two years

Our on-site school-led Nursery will provide excellent care and education for children aged from two years, and will be led by experienced teachers.

MCPS will be an inclusive and innovative school and we endeavour to create an environment which will foster a love of learning and offers opportunities for children to work both collaboratively and independently to meet their full potential. Our Nursery will provide a wide range of opportunities and experiences to encourage our youngest children to develop their natural curiosity and thinking skills. In this way they will develop the foundations upon which they will continue to build throughout their school career and beyond.

The Nursery Admissions Policy for current in-year admissions is available to download here.




Session Times

The Nursery sessions will run from 9.00am to 12.00pm (Morning Session) and 1.15pm to 3.15pm (Afternoon Session.) The Nursery will open at 8.45am, for children to be dropped off, and close at 3.15pm. Children attending a morning session will only need to be collected at 12.00pm. Children attending an afternoon session, or all day, can be collected at 3.15pm.


Lunch times are part of the education of the children as they teach them key social skills. We will therefore aim to allow for lunch to be eaten at the beginning of the afternoon session at 12.00pm. Alternatively your child can bring a packed lunch from home.


You will charged for hours over and above Early Years Entitlement, Extended Entitlement and 2Gether funding and for non-funded children. You can check with www.gov.uk to see whether you are eligible to receive help with childcare costs, including the 2Gether scheme for two-year-olds.

How to Pay

Invoices for any unfunded hours will be sent out at the beginning of every term. You can pay by cheque (made payable to Monkerton Community Primary School) or cash at main reception. We also accept employer’s childcare vouchers. Further details on how to pay are available by contacting us 01392 304040
