Provision for 2 Year Olds
Little Hearts is our school nursery for children aged 2 years. Little Hearts is run by the school and overseen by our Foundation Stage Manager Mrs Gillespie. Staff working within Little Hearts are supported by qualified teachers and have very strong links with our EYFS Unit (Nursery and Reception classes).
Little Hearts provides sessions each week day from 8.45 to 3.15pm. Breakfast Club is available each day from 8.00am.
2 Year Old Funded Places
As your child approaches their 2nd birthday, parents will receive a letter from Liverpool City Council based on the details held by LCC Housing Department. This letter grants automatic eligibility to a place, so please pop in as soon as you receive your letter so we can allocate your child a place.
We also offer full time places and additional sessions along with paid places, please contact the school office for more information.
