Our School


The Early Years curriculum at Keyworth Primary School is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils within our care.

Through the seven areas of learning, we provide topics that excite and engage children, building on their own interests and developing their experiences of the world around them.

We recognise that children come into our setting with different experiences from others in their learning and play.  It is the role of our setting to help children experience the awe and wonder of the world in which they live. All staff work hard to ensure that the learning opportunities provided widen children’s knowledge and understanding of the world, setting ambitious expectations for all children.

We believe that children learn best in early years through play and exploration. Children are encouraged to join in activities, to be independent and to make choices. We provide stimulating and well-resourced learning spaces, where provision is carefully planned to challenge, motivate and develop children’s skills within the 7 areas of learning.

What we offer:

We offer both part time and full-time places, Monday to Friday, during term time only – subject to availability. Morning sessions run from 8:45 am to 11:45am, and afternoon sessions from 12:30pm to 3:30pm.

We offer full time places for 30-hour free childcare eligible children. You will need a 30 hour code for us to accept your child for a 30 hour place. You can check your eligibility and receive your code by going to this website https://www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare?step-by-step-nav=f517cd57-3c18-4bb9-aa8b-1b907e279bf9

There are 2 ways in which parents can use the 30-hour free childcare

Option 1

Your child can attend 5 full days of Nursery, with an extra cost for lunchtime. The cost is £3.00 per day. You can also collect your child every day for lunch which will incur no extra cost.

Option 2

Your child can attend 4 and a half days a week with no extra costs for lunchtime. This means one day a week you would collect your child at 11:45am, or drop them to school at 12:30pm.
