The Nursery at Wheatcroft usually takes around 30 children in the morning session (8:45am-11:45am) and 20 in the afternoon (12:30pm-3:30pm), although this does depend on circumstances. It is housed in a bright, purpose built area attached to the main school and with its own outside area. The children also regularly have lessons in our Forest School.
