Nursery Plus

Nursery Plus

Nursery Plus provides a flexible package of care, allowing parents to opt for the care sessions that suit their specific needs.

Early Morning Session

Children can attend the early morning session from 7.45am until the start of the nursery day at 8.45am.

A light breakfast is available. Staff accompany the children to their classes in time for the start of Nursery at 8.45am.

Afternoon Session

This is available to children who attend Nursery all day and runs from 3.00pm when the Nursery day ends until 6.00pm. Children have a snack, which is provided, followed by opportunities to relax and play.

Holiday Club

This is available from 7.45am until 6.00pm each day during all school holidays, with the exception of the period over Christmas and New Year (including any staff in-service day), Good Friday, Easter Monday and the five days before the start of the new session in August. Children bring a packed lunch but a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack are provided.


We aim to make Nursery Plus as flexible to the needs of families as possible. However, as places are limited, early registration is recommended.

No child may attend without a registration form being completed and the registration fee being paid. Parents wishing to use Nursery Plus on an occasional basis will be accommodated, if space permits. Please note that registration is still required for occasional use.

Annual Registration Fee: £10 per service.

This fee will be reviewed in May each year.

Registration cheques should be made payable to 'George Watson’s College' and envelopes marked for the attention of 'Fiona Shahroozi'. Please write your child’s name on the back of the cheque.

Fees for care are reviewed annually in May for the following session.
