We run 2 sessions a day – mornings from 08:45 to 11:45 and afternoons from 12:30-15:30. Parents are free to select a preference and will always be given their first choice subject to availability. The children start at the beginning of the school day and are collected at home time. Each child is provided with a hot school meal unless parents choose to provide a packed lunch.

Before starting Manor, members of our nursery visit will conduct a home visit to meet you and your child so that there is a friendly face that they will recognise when they start with us.

Each child is different – some settle more quickly than others but we will always work together in ensuring the smoothest start for your child.
