Key Information

Our Nursery Day

We have flexible drop off and collection times and children can attend for mornings, mornings with lunch or all day. You can choose any combination from the following start and finish times.

Start times

Finish times







We recommend a minimum of 4 sessions per week; comprised of whole days or half days to ensure that children are well established, happy and independent in the Oliver’s Battery Nursery environment. Children are able to do more or less then this but we ask for a minimum booking of 2 sessions a week (a full day or 2 mornings).

A significant amount of time is allocated to Discovery time in which children take the lead in their learning through play. During this time they are able to access both the indoor and outside environments. The children also have opportunities to work within small groups daily as well as coming together as a large group. Adults follow the children’s lead and extend the children’s learning.


In the term following your child’s third birthday, you are entitled to 15 hours of National Education Grant (NEG) funding per week for 38 weeks annually.  Two year old funding is available in the term following your child’s second birthday. This is available to families claiming certain benefits and children with Special Educational Needs. Visit the Hantsweb online site for the '2 year old offer' form.  We also offer 30 hours per week funding for three and four year olds if eligible.  Please check the HMRC website to check your eligibility:

Additional hours may be purchased, see details below.


Fees are payable half-termly via invoice.

Here at Oliver’s Battery Primary School we run a successful and fun Breakfast Club. It is available for all children from age 3 and above.

Children are able to eat a nutritious breakfast and then participate in a range of activities before school starts. Some of the activities available are board games, ball games and access to the ICT suite.

The club runs from 7.50am until 8.45am every day in the school hall. The cost per day is £5.25 per child.

The breakfast includes a drink of fruit juice, cereal, fruit and toast and low fat spreads. The menu sometimes alters slightly to include yoghurt and other breakfast foods. We also cater for any special dietary needs. Please note our school is a nut-free site.

The children are looked after by three supervisory assistants. In addition to this a member of the school’s senior leadership team is also present in school.
