 Nursery School 

Maintained nursery is managed by a governing body and is usually on the site of a primary school.

Maintained nurseries in St Helens offer places for three and four year-olds the year before they start school, but they may be able to go sooner if there are enough places (Broad Oak, Thatto Heath and Robins Lane offer some 2 year olds places).

Your child can get 15 hours of free nursery care each week for 38 weeks each year.

The hours are normally divided up into morning or afternoon sessions on 5 days per week. The School will contact you with details of the session times for your child after a place has been allocated by the Local Authority.

30 Hours Free Childcare

Some working parents are eligible for up to 30 hours of free childcare/early education per week (for 3-4 year olds). As a result this may have an impact on the number of pupils that maintained schools can offer places to.

The places allocated by the Local Authority are for the Universal 15 hours of Free Early Education that all 3-4 year olds are entitled to. If you are interested in taking up the 30 hours Free Childcare you should contact the nursery to find out if they will be offering 30 hour places and whether there is any availability. You should apply for an extended entitlement place through the nursery after you have secured the 30 hours free childcare eligibility voucher from the Childcare Choices website.
