Rosebank Primary School

"We are all friends and together we succeed"

2 year olds Nursery at Rosebank!

Our Nursery is currently caters for 3 year old children, but we are now also offering places for 2 year olds to start in September this year!

From September, we will have a room of experienced adults, with early years’ experience, to teach, nurture and care for your children. It is an exciting opportunity to give children the best start to learning and has been proven to be highly successful at a variety of schools across the city.

Children can attend from the term after they are two. For example, any child who has celebrated or will celebrate their second birthday before 31st August can begin Rosebank Primary School in September. All parents have to do is complete an admission form that is available from the school office.

There are currently twelve places available on mornings (8:45am to 11:45am) and twelve places available on afternoons (12:30pm to 3:30pm). Children can attend for any combination of mornings or afternoons, however it is not possible to attend for a full day on any day.

So, parents can sign children up for fifteen hours of childcare in a week (five mornings or afternoons). Due to the high ratio of adults to children – every four children will have one adult key worker – the sessions will be £20 each. However, you could be eligible for fifteen hours of free childcare per week.

Your two year-old can get 15 hours of free early education and childcare if you live in England and get one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit - if you and your partner have a combined income from work of £15,400 or less a year, after tax
  • Tax Credits and you have an income of £16,190 or less a year, before tax
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
  • the Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

 A child can also get free early education and childcare if any of the following apply:

  • they’re looked after by a local council
  • they have a current statement of special education needs (SEN) or an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • they get Disability Living Allowance
  • they’ve left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order

To prove you are eligible for fifteen hours of free childcare, either contact Family Information Service (Leeds City Council) and gain a letter of confirmation to bring to school, or give your details – surname, date of birth and NI number – to the office when filling our admission form.

Places will go fast so don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to nurture skills, vocabulary and social play as early as possible.
