Children are accepted after their 2nd birthday but we encourage you to register on our waiting list by completing a registration form available on this site to download or from the nursery.
The Nursery offers a secure, caring and stimulating environment in a warm Jewish atmosphere where children can play, enjoy artistic expression and learn to develop their social, emotional and intellectual and physical skills as well as listening and language skills. This is achieved within the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and through the Prime and Specific areas of learning.
Our children are taught to respect all members of society as well as their Aunties and to care for one another, their belongings and themselves.
They will learn the basics of Judaism, which will provide them with essential knowledge for life in the context of Jewish beliefs and values.
Our Nursery accept childcare vouchers, including emergency childcare, 15 hours free Essex County Council funding for 2 year olds (depending on personal circumstances) and 3 & 4 year olds regardless. We also offer up to 12 hours extended entitlement for 3 year olds.
