Childcare

We run two welcoming nurseries for families looking for full-time, part-time or sessional daycare support.

Our centres, in the Lloyd Park and Higham Hill areas of Walthamstow, are both rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

We offer half-day, full-day and sessional care for children from six months up to five years of age, and we have places for almost 200 children across both centres. . We also run breakfast, after school and holiday clubs for schoolchildren up to the age of 11.

We offer fun, engaging and creative nurseries to support your child’s development. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and parents can keep track of their child’s progress through the Learning Book – a digital way of observing and securely assessing your child’s learning and play, leaving parents and children with a record of happy memories.

Please contact The Lloyd Park Centre or The Higham Hill Centre for more information, including fees, and to arrange a tour.

Free childcare places

We offer ‘approved childcare’ which means you may be able to access free childcare or help in paying for the costs.

All children aged three and four years are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare for 38 weeks of the year.  Some two-year-olds are also eligible, if you get certain benefits.  We offer these sessional places from 9am to 12pm Monday to Friday during term-time.

Since September 2017 some children are entitled to 30 hours of free childcare if for example their parents work over 16 hours per week as long as either parent earns less than £100,000 per year. Other support includes Tax Free Childcare, Tax Credits and Childcare Vouchers. For more information visit www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs
