A Day In The Nursery

We have two year groups at King’s House Nursery: Caterpillars for children aged 3 and Butterflies for children aged 4. Both groups have varied and exciting days, with a balance of free-flow, adult led and child initiated activities, as well as phonics, learning and play.

Wraparound care is available: Early Birds in the Nursery starts at 8am. 

Children in the Nursery also benefit from the school’s facilities and specialist teachers, including Music, PE, Drama and languages.

Caterpillars can also stay for lunch until 12.45pm. To find out more about life in the Nursery, please contact the Registrar on admissions@kingshouseschool.org or 020 8940 1878.
