The Nursery at Kent House is an Early Years provision with warm and welcoming staff, that are a dedicated team of individuals working together to promote a wide and varied Early Years provision. Our highly qualified and experienced staff offer the children a learning through play based experience as required for the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Our Nursery class offers 52 places (26 each session). This is a mixture of full time (30 hours) and part time (15 hours) places, funded. Children can start in Nursery the term after their third birthday, if places are available.
At present all three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week, up to 38 weeks per year. The government has also introduced an extended 15 hours of free childcare per week - 30 hours in total for 38 weeks per year, for those families that are eligible.
The hours for the Nursery are as follows: Morning sessions 8.30am - 11.30am, afternoon sessions 12.30pm - 3.30pm.
We also offer 8.30am - 3.30pm for those that qualify for the 30 hours free child care. *This includes an hour for lunchtime provision chargeable at £5.00 per pupil per day.
