" I feel it is crucial that children get as early and as good a start in an education environment as soon as possible to enable them to grow emotionally, socially as a valued child in our community"
(Peter Dowd, Bootle MP)
**We are excited to announce that Buddies Nursery will be opening at Rimrose Hope immediately after October half term 2021**
We accept 2 year old children the term after their 2nd birthday.
Some two year olds in Sefton can get FREE early learning and childcare support if they meet one or more of the eligibility criteria. If applicable, please be sure to apply for funding as soon as it is possible. For more information you can contact Sefton council on 0151 933 6021 or click here to check the funding criteria. You can also complete an online application form for funded early learning. If you are not entitled to a funded place, your child can still attend Buddies Nursery at a small cost.
Your child's name can be placed on our waiting list any time before their 2nd birthday by completing our electronic application form.
We would encourage you to arrange a visit to Buddies Nursery (restrictions allowing) to meet our team and see our purposefully planned indoor and outdoor environment. In the meantime you can watch our Welcome Video to see for yourself what our philosophy looks like in practice.
We offer 15 hours a week to each child (if you are entitled to the two year old funding, this is free). The 15 hours will be used by your child attending either morning or afternoon sessions. Session times are as follows:
Morning: 9am - 11:45am
Afternoon: 12:15pm - 3pm
It is easy to register your child at Buddies Nursery. Simply complete the following form or contact the school office for more information:
