At Hudson we recognise the need for supporting families and our community. With this in mind we recently opened up our Nursery facilities to accommodate the Government’s new initiative to support families in providing free childcare for two year old children (15 hours).
In September 2017 we will also be opening our doors for some eligble children following the Governments new initiative; 30 hours free chilcare for 3-4 year olds.
Our Hudson Nursery is bright, spacious and welcoming, enabling children to safely explore, discover and create both indoors and outdoors. Not forgetting our purpose built Forest School which can be found outdoors, the only one in Maghull!
Our already established Nursery has recently been given a face lift and the local authority has invested thousands of pounds in renovations and adaptations. The Nursery is a sight to behold and offers the highest quality of care for your child. Uniquely staff bear teacher status or the highest level three teaching assistant and Early Years Practitioner qualifications.
You can see if you qualify for a free place for your two year old by enquiring within school or seeking further advice from your health visitor. However to meet the needs of our families we do offer paid places for your child, but these are limited. Do not hesitate to talk to a member of our office or Children’s Centre to find out what is on offer.
Our two year old nursery runs daily in five three hour sessions – from 8.50am until 11.50am, all children who are entitled to a free place will be offered all five sessions; however those paying for a place can chose how many days they would like to purchase at an introductory price of £12 per day. These paid places again are limited and must be pre booked.
Not forgetting our three year old Nursery. We are able to provide flexible nursery provision to suit you. Whether you prefer to take your five (3 hour) Early Education sessions over 5 mornings, 5 afternoons or 2.5 days, we will endeavour to meet your requirements.
We can also provide wrap around care for children aged 3 – 4 from 7.45am – 6pm, through our Breakfast Club, additional child care sessions and after school care. Our additional sessions are competitive in costs with a morning or afternoon session costing £12 and lunch sessions (from 12.00pm —12.30pm) costing £3. Furthermore, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your child is staying in a familiar place, with familiar faces.
