We are open during Leicestershire term time from 8.30am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Each day is made up of the following sessions:

  • 12.00 noon to 1.00pm - Lunch

These sessions can be taken as a whole day or a mixture of hours to suit your needs.

We also provide some provision during school holidays dependant on demand.



Children are offered a healthy breakfast such as cereals and toast with milk or water to drink.


Parents/carers can either provide a packed lunch or can take advantage of the availability of a hot meal. The meals are cooked on site at a cost of £2.00 per day (this will change to £2.50 in January 2019). A menu is on display in the Pre-school should you wish to consider this option.


A variety of healthy snacks, in line with our Healthy Tots status, are served during the morning and afternoon freeplay session.

Freeplay Sessions

A freeplay session will be set up for the children to choose an activity. All activities follow Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines and offer a rich play and learning experience for our children.

We provide provision for continual outdoor play in our covered area and the staff team encourage the use of outdoor toys including trikes, ride-ons, balls and hoops.

We also have a large turfed and slabbed area for further activities.
