All three and four year olds in Staffordshire are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education per week, over no fewer than 38 weeks of the year. This applies the term after their 3rd birthday until they reach recepiton age.  Norton Canes Primary Academy has one admission date per annum, which takes place in the autumn term starting in September.   We do require children to attend each day whilst they are in our nursery.  As our provision is lead by a qualified teacher we follow the curriculum and prepare children for starting reception the following September.  We are unable to offer ad-hoc days once children reach nursery age.
