Children from Balham and Tooting join our nursery class from the term after they turn two years and four months. In order to ensure they have a gentle start to their early years education, they join us for a minimum of three mornings a week (Tuesday through Thursday) until the term after they turn three. In the term after they turn three, all children attend for the full five mornings each week. All children have the option of staying for lunch or if they are no longer napping they can join us for afternoon school until 3.15pm.
In the year they turn four, children move into Pre-Reception where they all stay for five morning sessions each week. As with nursery, they are able to stay for lunch or afternoon school also. We encourage children to attend at least one afternoon session per week to ease the transition between part time and full time school.
