Nursery Reopening - January 2021

Further to our school closure letter earlier this month, we are absolutely delighted to announce that the Nursery can re-open, in line with current government guidance.

The first day back will be on Monday, 18 January 2021, and all Nursery children are welcome to return. We will operate in a similar way you were used to before Christmas.

However, as a reminder, here are the main points:

  • The entrance and exit for the children will be through the Nursery Gate
  • We will operate a queue and one-way system, which will be clearly marked
  • We ask that only one parent drops off and collects
  • Parents should wear masks when dropping off and collecting their children
  • If your child has a cough/temperature/etc. please could you not bring them to school, especially given the current, wider situation
  • Please bring spare clothing and footwear each day in case of accidents
  • Please bring plenty of wipes as well
  • Children will be required to wear school uniform
  • High contact areas will be cleaned throughout the day
  • If you need us, please contact the Nursery via email nursery@harrisprimarykenthouse.org.uk to avoid long contact at the gate
  • The school office will only be accessible via phone or email, no visitors (including parents) will be permitted

Nursery Class

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. 

Please note - for those parents not entitled to the 30 hours funded childcare (extended 15 hours free child care), we can offer a paid full time place, at a cost of £100 per week, payable in advance. All full time places are subject to 5 days per week, 38 weeks per year.

Applications for a place in our Nursery can be made directly to the school, by collecting an application form from the school office and returning it directly to the school once completed. Alternatively you can download a copy of the application form using the link below, and returning to us either via email using the following email address - info@harrisprimarykenthouse.org.uk or the school office.

We can assist you with the eligibility criteria for the universal 15 hours free child care and extended 15 hours free child care (30 hours).

Information about the extended 30 hours free childcare can also be found by visiting the following website:
