A new nursery will open at St James’s CE Primary School in Daisy Hill.
The number of nursery places in the area is being expanded as the Government deals with extra demand.
Headteacher Catherine Watkin said: “The Governing Board is delighted that the school has the opportunity to expand and further develop the educational provision at St James, Daisy Hill, by offering high quality nursery education. This will ensure that all children are given the very best start to their education and achieve even better outcomes from a very early age.
“The provision that the school will be offering within the community will also help to support working parents and will entail both full time and part time nursery education places for children from the age of two.”
Currently, all families with children aged three and four years old can access 15 hours a week of free childcare.
However, from September children of working parents will be entitled to the extra hours.
