Shofar Daycare Nursery operates 51 weeks per year, excluding Jewish holidays and bank holidays.

Our normal opening hours are Monday-Thursday 0745-1815 and Friday 0745-1615.

The dates below show our holiday dates and some early closures for Jewish festivals.

We are closing in July 2022 for one week to allow us time to redecorate, repair and deep clean our nursery. (July bills will be revised to allow for a reduction on a child’s normal days during this week)
