Early Years Provision at Strathmore

Although the deadline for Nursery 2021 applications has now passed we will still accept ‘late’ applications. In order to submit a late application you will need to contact the school office to request a Continued interest application form and submit this to us as soon as possible.

Core Offer

Strathmore Infant and Nursery School offer the 15 hours FREE Nursery education, between 08:45 and 11:45 Monday to Friday, term-time only. There are 40 places available. This is open to children whose fourth birthday falls between 1st September 2021 and 31st August 2022.


Additional Care Sessions

Additionally, we are able to offer a Nursery Lunch Club, between 11:45 and 12:45 on days when the Nursery is open. This is a chargeable provision, and for the academic year 2020/21 the cost for this is £4.50 per session. Children should bring a packed lunch from home, or a school meal may be purchased at an extra cost of £2.30 each. All sessions and meals have to be ordered in advance – please note that Nursery aged children are not eligible for Free School Meals.


Strathmore Pre-School is a separate setting, run on the school site. The Pre-School is able to offer a limited number of places for afternoon care – please contact the Pre-School Leader, Diane Grazette, for details of availability and funding: 07953 742755.
