Flourish is a school-led early education setting, within the St. Peter’s school family. Here you will find a wealth of information about the setting and what it can offer your child as they begin their early learning adventures.
Flourish offers a warm and welcoming start to your child’s education, led by a family of highly-experienced staff , each with a passion for early learning and play. We pride ourselves on creating a nurturing environment where children are supported to grow, not just academically, but also spiritually, morally, emotionally, culturally, socially and physically.
As part of the St. Peter’s school family, Flourish benefits from two beautifully created early years spaces; purpose built facilities; a wealth of outdoor education opportunities in gardens, forests and fields and a seamless transition into the fantastic schools within the Mid-Trent MAT.
We hope that you will find the information here useful in helping you decide if Flourish is the right starting point for your child’s learning adventures. If you have any questions regarding the setting, the team or our policies and procedures, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Applications and Admissions
Flourish welcomes applications from those in receipt of funded hours (Think 2, 15 Hours Universal, 30 Hours) as well as those who wish to pay for sessions required.
Applications are accepted throughout the school year on a first come, first served basis until we have reached capacity.
All parents/carers must complete an application form, which is available digitally here and in paper format through the school office. Applications will only be considered once the application form has been received in school.
In the event of there being more applications for the setting than there are available places, admission to Flourish will be determined by the oversubscription criteria detailed within our admissions arrangements.
Funding and Fees
The government has numerous funding options available to support families with the cost of Early Years education and childcare. These include options for 15 and 30 hours childcare for 3 and 4 year olds and the Think 2 funding scheme which provides 15 free hours of childcare for 2 year olds to eligible families. More information regarding funding which may be available for you can be found at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk and we urge you to speak with us if you need any help with applying.
Flourish prides itself on offering affordable Early Years education for all. As such, our nursery fees are reviewed each year to ensure that we are always offering the very best value for money. Please see below for our current nursery fees and payment schedules.
