In September 2015 Gloucester Nursery School opened its doors to 2 year old children in a new separate, purpose built building in the grounds of the existing Nursery, providing a stimulating environment for children.  All the staff have a level 3 qualification in Early Years Education and Child Care. 

At present, the provision for 2 year old places is mainly for morning or afternoon sessions (8.30 - 11.30 am or 12.30 - 3.30 pm).  However, we do have a limited number of all day places. The cost of a session is £16.00 however it may be possible that certain children are entitled to 15 hours Funded Early Learning for 2 Year Olds.
