Little Sailors - Daycare

Daycare in Little Sailors is available to children from 6 weeks - 2 years and is open from 08.00* – 18.00 for 51 weeks of the year. Sessions are agreed at the point of entry. An increase in sessions will be accommodated immediately – space permitting. 

* A small number of places are available for 7.30am starts.


Applications are not restricted to September entry but it is not uncommon for a waiting list to operate when the demand for places exceeds supply.

A non-refundable fee of £100 must be paid to register a child’s interest in the School and, if necessary, to secure a place on the waiting list. Priority on the waiting list will go to registered children who have committed to join The Royal School's Reception class.

Once space becomes available, children are invited to take part in two or three free familiarisation sessions prior to a formal offer of a place to ensure that they are happy in Daycare and that the School is able to meet their needs.

Children move into Nursery in the September of the academic year in which they turn 3 years old. The Daycare and Nursery Managers work closely together to ensure that each child’s transition from Daycare to Nursery is completed successfully.
