About Halstead Nursery

Halstead Nursery is a small but very popular and friendly Ofsted registered setting that has been running since 1963. Our aim is to provide a stimulating and varied environment in which children can learn at their own pace through exploration and play. Our experienced and dedicated staff team support the development of the children’s skills and knowledge in accordance with the Government Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

We welcome children from the age of 2 and offer spaces for children eligible for the Government ‘Free for Two’, 3-4 year old ’15/30 hour Free Entitlement’ or ‘Disability Access Funding (DAF)’ schemes plus fee-paying spaces. Our funding/fee criteria are detailed in our Parent Fee Contract in the Policies & Documents section. We can accommodate 20 children per session.

Our self-contained classroom is located in the grounds of Halstead Community Primary School and has its own private garden space but also enjoy access to other school facilities including the playing field, school hall and outdoor adventure playground.

Halstead Nursery is in the catchment area for the villages of Halstead, Knockholt and Badgers Mount although we often attract children from further afield too – if you’re happy to travel, we’re happy to welcome you!
The nursery is managed by a committee of parents and friends who are responsible for employing staff, fundraising and generally administering the business of the nursery.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
