Our Hedgehog Nursery

Welcome to the Hedgehog Nursery at Gorseland Primary School. We are a Qualified Teacher Led Nursery with dedicated early years staff to care for you children. 

The Hedgehog Nursery is now accepting 3 to 4 years and, from Monday 11th April 2016, we have an exciting new timetable to provide more childcare provision for families. We have extended our Nursery opening times to provide a Breakfast Club, Morning Session, Lunch Session, Afternoon Session and an After School Club from 7:30 to 18:00. More information on the Nursery schedule can be found below.

Time Session Session Cost
7:30 - 8:30 Breakfast Club £4.50
8:30 - 11:30 Morning £13.00
11:30 - 12:15 Lunch £3.00
12:15 - 15:15 Afternoon £13.00
15:15 - 16:00 After School Club 1 £3.00
15:15 - 17:00 After School Club 2 £7.00
15:15 - 18:00 After School Club 3 £10.00


The Nursery is led by a Qualified Teacher providing a strong curriculum for the children to play and learn to. We use the online assessing platform 'Tapestry' to record each child's journey through Nursery. This is available to 24/7 for parents allowing you to see what your child has been up to during the week. We use assessments in Tapestry to understand your child's academic progress and this information is further used when joining our Reception class as Tapestry is a key part of our EYFS classes.

Following the extension of provision we are now offering a Breakfast Club, Lunch time cover and an After School Club.
Our Breakfast Club starts at 7:30 and will provide children with breakfast and care until the start of school. Initially, the breakfast club will only be available to Nursery children, but this will be extended in the future to the rest of the school. 
We are now offering lunchtime cover for children in our Nursery, allowing children to eat a packed lunch in the Nursery with our carers. At an extra cost we are able to supply a cooked school dinner.
The After School Club is able to provide childcare from 15:15 to 18:00. This club is currently only available to Nursery children, but this will be extended in the future to the rest of the school.
