 Nursery Places for 2 year olds

Our learning and play environment is perfectly designed to encourage creative play and interaction, helping children to learn and thrive in a safe and fun filled setting. We have outstanding practitioners who are fully experienced and qualified to meet your child’s learning and development needs.

 Why should you sign up?

  • Your family could receive up to 15 hours per week of free childcare and give your child a great start in life.
  • Your child will learn lots of new skills: they’ll learn to speak and listen, play and explore, learn numbers and other activities.
  • They’ll make lots of new friends and you’ll have time to work, train or just have some time for yourself.

Once approved, your free early learning entitlement runs from the start of the term after your child’s 2nd birthday until your child begins school, even if your family circumstances change.

To check if you’re eligible for FREE childcare please come in to Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy and we will make an enquiry on your behalf. Alternatively you can apply to Sheffield City Council online: www.sheffield.gov.uk/freearlylearning or by telephone: 0114 273 4567 (option 4, then option 3)

 What if I’m not eligible?

If you are not eligible for a free early learning place for your 2 year old you may still be able to pay for a place for your child. The cost of this is £13.50 per session plus lunch and snack if applicable.

Places are available. 

Please complete an application form and return it to the school office.

 

Nursery Places for 3 – 4 year olds

All 3 and 4 year olds are eligible for up to 15 hours Nursery Education a week.  Children who use a Free Early Learning place show greater levels of achievement in their school years.

Our Nursery learning and play environment provides invaluable early learning experiences and intensive language development for 3 – 4 year olds.  As children explore our indoor and outdoor play spaces they develop their social skills and our dedicated Early Years teaching staff are always on hand to stimulate and support children at play.

Your child’s free early learning entitlement runs from the start of the term after your child’s 3rd birthday.  Apply early to secure your child’s place.
