Welcome to Elf Class!


From September 2017 we are pleased to be able to offer nursery provision for 3 and 4 year old in our new Foundation 1 class.


All parents of 3 year olds are currently entitled to 15 hours of free childcare but from September, this increases to 30 hours, if you are eligible*. Children can attend our setting from the term after their 3rd birthday with intakes in September, January and April.


We can offer you:

  • Flexible sessions to suit your needs

  • 30hours or 15hours

  • Qualified, experienced teachers who specialise in the Early Years Foundation Stage

  • Staff dedicated to providing high quality Early Years provision

  • Wraparound care (at an additional cost)

  • A vibrant curriculum, with exciting topics, that makes pupils highly interested in new things

  • A smooth transition into FS2

  • A warm and friendly school environment where pupils enjoy coming to learn and feel safe and secure.

If your child was born between 01.09.13 and 31.03.15 and you would be interested in joining us please email Mrs Ellis on office@gateford.notts.sch.uk or phone the school office on 01909478681.
