Bushy Leaze Children and Families Centre is a maintained nursery school serving children and families in Alton and further afield. We offer both full-time (30 hours) and part-time (15 hours) places for children aged 2 to 5 years old and have 30 SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) places, which are allocated by Hampshire County Council. Lunch club can be accessed by full-time children and some of our 3 to 4 year olds as part of school readiness.


Places for 3 -4 year olds

All children are eligible for 15 or 30 funded hours for free (depending on household circumstances) the term after they turn three. Most children start in the September after their third birthday, but we can take children during the year, if we have spaces. You can check if you are eligible for 30 hour funding here:


Places for 2 Year Olds

Some children are eligible for 15 free funded hours (depending on household circumstances), the term after they turn two. You can check if you are eligible here: /childcare/payingforchildcare/freechildcare/2yearoldoffer

From April 2024 you may be entitled to free childcare if you are working.  To find out more information and if you qualify visit: 


You can also pay for sessions, which cost £24.00 (Sept 2024). There is a two session per week minimum requirement.

Please note that for children taking up an all day session, there will be an additional charge of £3.00 per day for lunch club. Lunch club sessions may also be purchased at £3.00 per session for part-time children.

All children attending lunch club will need to bring a packed lunch.

Nursery Experience Fee

At Bushy Leaze, we like to enhance children's learning by putting on special activities/experiences during the course of the year, whilst still having fun!

As we no longer have an active PTA this is proving more difficult, so we are asking each family to make an annual nominal fee of £10.00.  With this, we can continue to provide extra experiences, such as Earth Song (multi-cultural music workshop), Living Eggs ( watching chicks beig hatched) Insect Lore (the development of a chrysalis to a butterfly), visiting farm, cooking activities, etc.  

Please see our Admissions Policy for more information.
