Strawberry How Nursery School in Cockermouth is a modern, purpose-built, private Day Nursery. Within our setting we seek to offer professional, high-quality childcare and early years education within a friendly and caring atmosphere. We are open from 7.30-6.00pm, 50 weeks a year and we are proud that all our staff have a Level 3 qualification of higher. We are unusual in that we have specialist facilities and staff specially trained to care for babies. We have recently reduced the number of baby spaces that are available. We have the highest accreditation from Cumbria Childrens' Services and since 2009 we are the only Nursery in the Cockermouth Area to have a 5 star food hygiene rating from Environmental Health.

Needless to say, we are all proud of our Nursery - we hope you gain lots of information from our website. Nevertheless, we live in times of change so we thought it a good idea to throw some light on the new Government funding proposals.      

A note on the new Government funding 

2 year olds will be funded from April 15th 2024 (189 hours in summer term). This is for children who are two years old before 31.03.2024. Both parents must be working and they need to claim their funding code well before 31.03.2024. It is worth £327.60 per month till September and thereafter from September it's £370.50 per month. Food is not part of the funding and is charged at cost. With the prospect of funding there has been significant interest in places so priority is given to present parents although there are a few spaces on certain days for new children.

9 mth old babies will be funded from September 2nd 2024 for 47.5hrs/month. This is for children who are 9 months old before 31.08.2024. Both parents must be working and they should claim their funding code well before 31.08.2024. This is worth £370.50 per month.  Our minimum day is 6.5hrs. We have recently reduced the number of baby places so we are now only taking children that book at least two days. Nursery food for babies remains subsidised.
