Two Year Old Provision at Low Hall Nursery School

School

Low Hall Nursery School is a community school, funded by the London Borough of Waltham Forest. We offer joyful pre-school education and childcare to children aged 2, 3 and 4, with highly-qualified staff - 3 qualified teachers, and Early Years Practitioners who have at least NVQ Level 3.

We admit some children the term after they are 2, but most the term after they are 3 years old. Put your child's name on our Waiting List at https://www.fans.waltham.sch.uk/form/?pid=50&form=27

To find out more about us, please come to our Visiting Day. These are held on Tuesdays, term-time only, between 9.30am–11am and 1pm–2.30pm. These sessions can get full quickly so we recommend that you arrive early, or drop in to our reception or call 020 8520 1689 to book an appointment. Coming to Visiting Day will help you and your child become familiar with the nursery staff, building, garden and routine.

2 year olds
Some families may be able to access 15 hours of free early education (FEEE) over a maximum of 38 weeks (15 x 38 = 570 hrs per year), which we provide as term-time only. We may also be able to offer such places on a paid-for basis from time to time.

The Government decides if a family is entitled to the 15 hrs FEEE for 2 year olds. To find out if you are eligible, go to  www.walthamforest.gov.uk/freechildcare 

You can also apply for 30 hour funding for 3 and 4 year olds through Childcare Choices at https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. To apply you will need to register and set up a Childcare Account, which you can do by following the links on the Childcare Choices website.

Federation
Low Hall is part of the Forest Alliance of Nursery Schools, a federation with Church Hill Nursery School. We work together, retaining our separate and unique identities and pooling our wide-ranging knowledge, skills and experiences of high-quality early years education.
