Pre-schools provide play base learning for children aged between 2 and 5 years old. They usually offer morning and/or afternoon sessions of around 3 hours and operate term time only. Some provisions also offer extended or holiday sessions. Funded pre-school places are available for 3 and 4 year olds (and some 2 year olds depending on eligibility) for up to 15 hours per week.
A nursery class is attached to a primary school and provides early education and childcare for children between 3 and 5 years old. They usually open only during school hours, in term times. Most children will be offered a part time place. This usually means a morning or afternoon session of around 3 hours. Some may offer additional out of school care to help working parents.
