Fairfield Nursery is a Lancashire County Council maintained community Nursery School providing high quality early years education for two, three and four year old children.

We have intakes in January, April and September so no child is waiting too long to begin this exciting journey.

We offer either five mornings or five afternoons for the free 15 hours Early Years Funding and a combination of both sessions for three and four year olds who are eligible for the Free 30 hour Funding. We will discuss further options of accessing our school on request. Two year olds who are not eligible for the Free entitlement are welcome and will be charged until the term after their third birthday.

Morning sessions are 8.40am to 11.40am

Afternoon sessions are 12.35pm to 3.35pm

The admission arrangements are determined by the local authority. Please visit for parent information on Nursery School Admissions in Lancashire.
