Early Education Centre (Foster Hall)

Pre-School

We are a term time pre-school funded by London Borough of Waltham Forest. We provide up to 30 hours of Free Nursery sessions to children aged between 2 and 5 years.

Our aim is to provide outstanding quality of care and education to local children, particularly to families who might not be able to afford childcare without the grant. We support families to balance the needs of their child and the need for them to find employment. Our curriculum is delivered under the lead of a qualified and experienced Early Years Practitioner, and all of our staff are qualified at NVQ level 3 or above in childcare.

Morning session: 9.15 am to 12.15 pm
Afternoon session: 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm
