Providing Quality and Affordable Childcare and Education in Kennington
We provide childcare from 8am to 6pm for 2 to 5 year olds 50 weeks per year.
Hurley Pre-School is a voluntary community group dedicated to providing quality, affordable childcare and education in Kennington for children aged 2-5 years. The preschool / nursery is registered with OFSTED (Reg. No. 144055), a registered charity (Charity No. 1000974) and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.
The pre-school is open 50 weeks per year. There are four days per year allocated for staff training when the nursery will be closed. The playschool and nursery is registered for 36 children per session (3hrs) for children from 2-5 years of age. Our admissions policy is used to allocate available places, and details of our opening hours and fees can be seen by clicking here. The pre-school has a dedicated area for the under 3's and provides them with spacious surroundings to enable them to move about freely and develop their physical skills.
We are managed by a committee which is made up mainly of parents and carers, who are nominated once a year at our Annual General Meeting. Hurley Pre-School follows all Local Education Authority guidelines for safeguarding our children, and all our staff are trained to support this important role. This also includes Paediatric First Aid.
We fund raise to maintain the pre-school with charity events and activities, e.g. jumble sales, raffles, etc., and aim to be as environmentally-aware as possible, fostering this awareness in our children at an early age.
At Hurley Pre-School, we recognise the importance of parents / carers in a child’s development, and are committed to working in partnership to ensure that each child receives high quality, safe and stimulating care with a variety of learning and play opportunities.

"Staff focus sharply on children's personal, social and emotional development. Children form friendly relationships with each other and with the staff,
and this has a positive impact on their emotional well-being."
