Sessions & Fees


The Nursery year consists of six terms: 1 & 2 (Autumn), 3 & 4 (Spring) and 5 & 6 (Summer) and is similar to East Sussex County Council school term dates.

Whitehill Nursery School is open five days a week during each term and provides the following sessions:

Nursery Sessions Start Finish
Breakfast Club 8.00am 8.30am
Morning 8.30am 11.30am
Lunch 11.30am 12.00pm
Afternoon 12.00pm 3.00pm
Full Day 8.30am 3.00pm

We also offer the extended 15 hours as a stretched offer. Please speak to a member of staff for further information.


Whitehill Nursery School is registered with OFSTED to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and therefore can claim the Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE) from East Sussex County Council.

This entitlement will pay towards a maximum of 5 x 3 hour sessions a week over 38 weeks a year.

Whitehill Nursery School offers the flexibility that you can claim your free entitlement as either mornings, afternoons, full days or a combination of all three.

Please note, if you choose to use your EYEE entitlement as six hours over one day (i.e. AM and PM session) then there is a 30 minute period 11.30am-12pm (‘lunch charge’) which is not covered by the EYEE entitlement.

This 30 minute time period is referred to as ‘lunch’ as it takes into account the supervision of any children staying to eat their packed lunch during this time.

If your child is not entitled to EYEE or you wish to have additional sessions above your child’s entitlement, the following rates apply.

Fees Rate
Breakfast Club £3.00
Morning session £20.55
Afternoon session £20.55
Lunch £3.00
