Over Threes

Children start in the over threes the term after they are three years old. These children receive funding for 15 hours free early learning . It may be possible to start the term your child is three but these places are not funded.

Organisation and Routine

The children in the Over threes room are divided into 4 key groups led by either a teacher or a nursery nurse. These groups meet together at the beginning of the session for a belonging time, mid- session for a carefully planned group time and at the end of the session for songs and stories.

In between these short group times the children are free to play inside and outdoors in our learning environment. The Key Workers are your child’s main point of contact throughout the day or session.

They get to know your child very well and guides each child’s learning and development.

Please see our Key Group leaflet attached.
