Oaklands Childcare (Wolstanton) Ltd was first established in 2007 to provide parents with additional hours over and above the 15 hours that are funded.
The company now provides:
- wrap around care for the nursery
- allows us to take children into nursery in funded places the term after their 3rd birthday
- 2 year old provision, including Think 2 funded places (subject to eligibility)
- Lunch club
- Family groups – Stay and Play, Baby Massage and Yoga, Baby Play, Sing and Sign.
Children get 15 hours as a funded place in nursery (some families will be eligible for a free 30 hour place if both parents are working, subject to criteria). Click here to see the criteria for 30 hours places. You can pay for additional hours to meet your individual needs and circumstances; whether you want childcare all day, every day to enable you to go to work or college, or you just want your child to come to a couple of lunchtime sessions to get them used to eating away from home.
Children who attend the nursery for childcare sessions will stay in the same room, with the same staff and access to the same activities so they do not have any unnecessary changes. Planning is done in such a way that children will never repeat activities and always have plenty of choice of activities.
You will be asked when your child starts nursery if you would like additional hours. If you decide part way through the year that you would like more hours that’s fine as long as we have space.
We do ask that you do the same days/hours each week and give us notice if you plan to change as we have to organise the appropriate number of staff to meet ratios.
The childcare provision operates between 9.00am and 3.30pm. if you need childcare before or after school we have linked up with JW Playclub at St Wulstan’s Church Hall and Silverfox Care Club at Wolstanton High School who will provide this service. We also have a list of local childminders who will also provide this. We have a good working relationship with all of them and the children who come to nursery with them always arrive very happily.
Fees for childcare:
£3.80 per hour for 3 and 4 year olds
£4.00 per hour for 2 year olds
