We understand that families often need flexible childcare during school holidays
so we offer holiday clubs for pre-school and primary school children during most
of the school holiday periods, we are closed at Christmas and for two weeks in the
summer holidays. In 2019 the summer closure will be Mon 5th Aug - Fri 16th Aug 2019
We provide a range of activities during the holiday club and place particular importance
on having fun in the outdoor environment.
Please contact us to find out about the service that we can offer.
We are registered with Cumbria County Council to receive funding for pre-school children
under the free Early Years Entitlement. This offers up to 15 hours of “free” education
each week for 38 weeks (over 3 terms), from the term following their third birthday
and we can offer a flexible approach to meet the particular needs of children and
families. Working parents may be entitled to an additional 15 hours childcare if
they meet the eligibility criteria; we can offer advice on how this extra entitlement
can be used. We also provide places under the ‘Free Early Learning for 2 Year olds’
Children from Gosforth School can access our 'wrap-around’ services before and after
school. They are taken to school after breakfast club and are collected by nursery
staff at the end of their school day.
We are registered for payment of nursery fees by tax-saving vouchers such as Computershare,
NHS, Cumbria Constabulary, Fideliti and Accor.
