Funded only attendance

Your child will be able to start their free place from the beginning of the term after their 2nd birthday Free early learning for 3 and 4 year olds

All 3 year old children are eligible to receive a free early learning place for 15 hours per week from the term after their third birthday. Some children are eligible to receive 30 hours funding per week, for more details please see the Childcare Choices website.

Funded only attendance of 15 and 30 hours per week is available but places are very limited so please contact the Nursery Manager to discuss.

This attendance is term time only in line with the Slough Borough Council term dates and in addition there are five inset days per year which are chosen by the nursery. Therefore children attend for a total of 38 weeks / 570 or 1,140 hours per year.

**We currently have vacancies in our Builders Room only for 15 hours per week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9.45am-2.45pm**

Please contact the Nursery Manager Richard Wheeldon on 01753 635480 to discuss this.

Meal times are a very important part of the day and, depending on the times that your child attends Jack In The Box, we provide breakfast between 7.30am - 8.00am, a snack at 9.00am, lunch starting at 11.30am and tea at 3.15pm. Children in the Builders Room are required to bring their own packed lunch.

The staff are encouraged to eat with the children to promote interaction, improve social skills and to encourage good table manners.

The friendships with some children through the time at the nursery have been lovely.  Excellent relationships with the staff have been really valuable particularly when R started doing only one day a week.  She still wanted to come even though she was there so little.

I have had a child at JITB since 2009, and over the last 6 years we have been very happy with our experience.  The management team have been straightforward in their communications and we have a positive relationship. 

Anna has been pivotal in the development of both of our children, she is kind yet firm, always has a smile to welcome them into the setting and we will miss her.

The BHFT fee rate offered has meant that I have been able to return to work after both children successfully, without this discount this would not have happened.

We will miss the whole team, in my view they are all special and have an input into an important period of our children lives so far.
