Currently, all 3-4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week of government funded education/childcare during term time. Children of working parents may be eligible for an additional 15 hours a week (30 hours free entitlement). To find out if you are eligible please visit the government’s Child Care Choices website.
This year we have made some changes due to covid-19 recommendations from the government. Therefore we will be offering places as follows for 3-4 year olds:
Beginning of week sessions: Mon and Tues 9.00-3.00; Wed 9.00-11.00
End of week sessions: Wed 1.00-3.00; Thu and Fri 9.00-3.00
Mon-Thu 9.00-3.30, Fri 9.00-12.00

The majority of children start at Nursery in the September after their third birthday and stay with us for three terms prior to going in to primary school. If we have places available we can sometimes offer places to children in January or April if they have turned three. If your child is already three or four and you have moved into the area, there may be places available at different points in the year – it is worth ringing or calling in to check the availability of places.
We also have a number of places for 2-year-olds who are eligible for the government’s Funding for 2’s. If you are eligible you should receive a letter just before your child’s 2nd birthday, but if you haven’t you can check online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/free2s.
You can complete a Nursery application form to register your child following their second birthday [downloadable form to the right of this page]. We need to see proof of date of birth and proof of address when you bring the form in to Nursery and then your child can be put on our waiting list until offers of places are made.
The sessions we currently offer for funded 2 year-olds are
Mornings: Mon-Fri 8.45-11.45
Afternoons: Mon-Fri 12.30-3.30
For the past few years we have been able to accommodate all children who have registered from the Huntingdon area including: Oxmoor, Hartford, Sapley, Stukeley Meadows, Godmanchester, Brampton, Buckden, Wyton and Abbots Ripton.
