We are a Local Authority Nursery run as part of Beaconside C of E Primary School and therefore are  only open during the School Term,  but usually start a week after school in September to allow for home visits to be made and close a day earlier than school for the Christmas, Easter and Summer Holidays.

Our Nursery can offer children up to 5 x 3 hr sessions per week from the term after their 3rd birthday providing we have spaces.

Our nursery mostly  offers either morning or afternoon sessions, but can be flexible on how many sessions per week you choose to apply for if you wish to use some of your child’s free entitlement at a private day nursery.

We do also offer a limited number of full day places. Please contact us to check availability.


If you have an questions or queries, please email Miss Sarah Bowers at acorn@beaconside.cumbria.sch.uk
