About the Kindergarten
With its purpose-built facilities our Kindergarten provides a safe, secure and caring environment for our babies and toddlers. Children join us from the age of three months and can stay with us until they move up to Chapter House at the age of 3. Youngsters develop at different rates and so are treated as individuals as they gain new experiences and skills. Through child-led and adult-led play we encourage and develop language, social skills and physical development in our children. We are lucky to have amazing facilities on site – be it vast green spaces to enjoy a picnic, a visit to our outdoor play areas and playground. Our Kindergarten is open all year round, including the school holidays, so we can cater for all the demands of a working family. Our day runs from 8am (7.45am through prior arrangement) to 6pm and during the holidays we can also run a Holiday Club for some of our Chapter House children. We pride ourselves on the care we provide for our contented babies and toddlers and we make their transition an easy one to Chapter House Foundation Stage and the start of their academic learning at Queen Ethelburga's.
