Monday 16th November 2020
Wheatfields Nursery is now managed and controlled by Wheatfields Primary School. To contact nursery or to apply for a place from January 2020, please telephone (01480) 494960. This website will no longer be updated and a new online presence will be published by the school in due course. All nursery queries should now go to nursery staff in the first instance, and if you require further help please contact Wheatfields Primary School. This page is being kept online by the old Wheatfields Nursery Association committee for reference purposes until the school have created their own site. Please be aware that any information on this website may be out of date and no longer applicable. 

UPDATE Friday 23rd October 2020

As mentioned in today's newsletter, today is the last day of the children being in with Wheatfields Nursery Association in charge of nursery. After half term, nursery will be running under the management and ownership of Wheatfields Primary School. You can read today's newsletter here. From Monday 2nd November, Wheatfields Primary School will be responsible for continued Covid-secure compliance.

UPDATE Monday 7th September 2020
Nursery re-opens today after the summer, running as close to normal as possible. This week we are running meetings with parents and initial settling in sessions. Our nursery supervisor should have been in touch about timings for your child. Sessions will run as normal following our settling in week, beginning on Monday 14th September.

UPDATE Friday 24th July 2020

Nursery has now closed for the summer holidays. We are preparing to open as normal in September, with the whole of nursery operating as one "bubble" under the revised guidance. Our capacity at any one time will be 20 children and this has allowed us offer places to all eligible applications received to date for September. Further government details will be confirmed on 11th August and we will write to all parents prior to term starting with full details of how nursery will work. Applications for September can still be made through the website as a small amount of space is still available. A member of the committee will respond to you. Do note that we are full for 2 year olds during morning sessions.  (Posted by Stuart W)


UPDATE 15th June 2020
Today we are pleased to be open again to our two "bubbles" of children. Thank you for your patience and understanding in getting to the point of being able to reopen. We also look forward to seeing some of our younger children back in September. Although nursery is now open for some children, please DO NOT VISIT nursery unless you are dropping off or collecting a child for a session. Please contact nursery staff by telephone. From today we are also now taking applications for September 2020 admissions - and the application process has moved online so please visit our website if you would like to apply for a place. We're really sorry we can't offer visits at the moment, but do get in touch if you have any questions. (Posted b Stuart W)
