There are also private, fee-paying nursery schools in Cambridge which take children from the age of 2 or 3 years until they start school. They may offer a particular educational approach, e.g. Steiner or Montessori. Some operate during state school terms only; others are open for most of the year. Most operate for the state school day from approximately 9am–3.30pm. For an extra cost, they may run early and late clubs around their regular hours. 3 and 4 year olds should qualify for free part-time sessions through the Early Years Funding scheme.
