 Maxwellton Nursery caters for pupils from 3 years of age up to enrolment for primary school.

We offer 5 mornings or 5 afternoons.

Our Nursery is situated within the Primary School and as a result our Nursery Class takes part in some activities with the rest of the school.



Morning Session 8.45 am - 11.55 am

Afternoon Session 1.00 pm - 4.10 pm


An explanation of how places are allocated is given at the time of completing the application form. At present there are 3 intakes a year – in August/September, in January and in March.

Children are able to start nursery the day after his/her third birthday. The current charge is £8.50 per session from the day after  third birthday until their official intake date..

On your child's first day of nursery, he/she will stay for approximately one hour. The accompanying adult will stay either in the nursery playroom or in the parents' area.

On the second day the time will be increased and the adult will stay in the parent's area and enjoy a cup of coffee and meet the other adults. If your child is settled he/she will stay full time as soon as possible.

During the first few days we will go over the Nursery routines and procedures with you.

If you have any questions or anxieties please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff who will do her best to help you. Similarly if you have any complaints our staff are there to assist. If you wish, you can make an appointment to speak to us at a time suitable to all parties.
