What does Whinstone have to offer my child?
Click on our video below to gain an insight into a day in the life of our school.
Parents can apply directly to the school to have their child’s name put on the Nursery waiting list. Children are admitted from 3 years old, depending on places available.
We are a 78 place Nursery and currently we offer two and a half day and half day provision.
Two and half day provision is beginning of the week, all day Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday morning or end of the week, Wednesday afternoon, all day Thursday and Friday.
Half day provision is a morning or an afternoon session Monday to Friday.
Current timings of the day are;
All day sessions 8.55am-3.25pm
Half day sessions 8.55am-11.55am and 12.25pm-3.25pm.
A member of the Nursery team will contact you in the term prior to your child’s third birthday to discuss places available and the process of accepting a Nursery place with us , to ensure a happy and successful start for your child.
Admission to the Nursery does not secure a full time place in Reception. Parents need to apply separately. Please see the information on Reception admissions regarding applications to the Reception.

What Our Families are Saying
“Fabulous friendly staff, great relaxed teaching area. My daughter skipped every day into Reception she loved it! She had a great year of learning and growing up. We could not fault your teaching.” Julie Chapman“Honestly the best start for my little boy. He was only just 4 when he joined so the transition was a little difficult but the staff were great, especially Mrs Artley and Mrs Holder. He ended the year really loving going to school. I couldn’t have asked for more. Brilliant!!” Fiona Teasdale

‘Whinstone has given my little boy the very best start in his school life. I was nervous on his first day of nursery, but he settled in quickly and loved every minute of his time there.’
