How to Apply to Thornton Heath Nursery School

Thornton Heath Nursery School (THNS) admits children aged between two and four years old on a rolling basis throughout the year.

A number of different kinds of places for children are available:

  • ‘Funded’ part time places for 2 year olds
    (15 hours per week – either mornings or afternoons)
  • ‘Funded’ part time places for 3 & 4 year olds
    (15 hours per week – either mornings or afternoons)
  •  Full time places for 3 & 4 year olds
    (30 hours per week – part funded, part charged.  Parents/Carers ‘top up’ is £85.00 per week for 8:45- 3:30pm)
  • Lunchtime club (fees apply for part timers) This option allows part time morning children to stay for longer to have lunch in school or part time afternoon children to arrive early and have lunch.  As these hours extend beyond the 15 hours that are funded then a further charge applies.  Parents and Carers must book a whole week in advance at a cost of £22.50.
  •  Breakfast club and after school club for 3 & 4 year old children who are with us during the day
    (Fees apply – £4.00 for breakfast club and £10.50, including a hot meal, for after school club.  If you are working a certain number of hours you may be entitled to tax credits to help meet the cost of thies care.  Fo further information please contact Suzanne Christopher 0208 684 5704 or by email )
