Early Years

At Corpus Christi, our Nursery and Reception are combined together into an Early Years Unit.  This allows us to respond to children’s needs and teach to their ‘stage’ not ‘age’.  We are very proud of our newly refurbished Early Years.  Please take a look at our Early Years Video on the home page of our website.

EYFS-Curriculum Statement


In Nursery, we offer a flexible provision of 15 or 30 hours.  Currently, every 3 and 4 year old is entitled to 15 hours funded childcare from the term after their third birthday.  This can be 5 mornings per week or 2.5 days to suit your needs. However, some families may be eligible for 30 hours.  Click on the links to find out more:ARE YOU ELIGIBLE FOR A 30 HOUR NURSERY PLACE
