Nursery Packages


Crosfield Nursery School admits children aged between three and four years old on a rolling basis throughout the year. The majority of children enter the nursery classes in the September following their third birthday and attend over 5 morning (8.30-11.30am) or 5 afternoon (12.30-3.30pm) sessions each week.


Where capacity exists, full time places or flexible packages with additional hours are offered in response to the needs of children and their families. A full time place may start from 8.00am and continues to 3.30pm.


Full time places or additional hours will be offered once initial 15 hour places have been allocated. The number of these may vary from year to year. When applying for a full time place or flexible package, parents/carers are asked to give their reasons which will be considered according to the criteria in our Admissions Statement.


A charge is made for full time places and any other hours additional to the 15 hour core offer.


A number of different kinds of places for children are available:

  • ‘Funded’ part time places for 3 & 4 year olds
    (15 hours per week – either mornings or afternoons)
  •  Full time places for 3 & 4 year olds
    (30 hours per week – part funded, part charged.  Parents/Carers ‘top up’ is £5.00 per hour).
  • Lunchtime club (fees apply for part timers) This option allows part time morning children to stay for longer to have lunch in school or part time afternoon children to arrive early and have lunch.  As these hours extend beyond the 15 hours that are funded then a 1 hour charge of £5.00  applies. 
  • Breakfast club for 3 & 4 year old children who are with us during the day. (Fees apply – £3.60 for breakfast club).
  •  Crosfield is a maintained nursery school and thus is bound by the admissions policy of the Local Authority (LA) – The London Borough of Croydon.



Crosfield Nursery School is a cashless school and parents are asked to pay for fees by logging into parent pay.  Parents must set up an account for payments to be made via the internet.  A computer in reception is available to parents if they do not have access to the internet.
