Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below some of the most commonly asked questions relating to our nursery programme. For any other questions please don't hesitate to send us an email or give us a call on 020 7286 4785.

What are the hours for the nursery?

Our nursery is run in two sessions, morning or afternoon, five days a week. These sessions run from 8.45-11.45am or from 12.45-3.45pm.

The nursery calendar is aligned with the whole school term dates which can be accessed here

Are any snacks or lunch provided?

The sessions are split in order that children can enjoy lunch at home, however we do ask that parents provide a healthy snack and drink for a mid-session break.

Does my child need to be toilet trained before joining the nursery?

Yes, we do require all children joining the nursery to be toilet-trained as we do not have the appropriate facilities to change them. That said, we understand that accidents do happen at this early stage so sometimes may request parents provide the school with spare underwear and a change of bottoms.

What specialist activities will my child be doing at Abercorn?

We take great pride in being able to offer even our youngest pupils in the school specialist teaching in French, Music, Swimming, P.E and Yoga. 

What is the uniform for nursery students?

In nursery our children wear an Abercorn blue sweatshirt and jogging bottoms, with either a white polo shirt or turtle neck depending on the season. This uniform serves to unify the nursery, and the unrestrictive design of the clothing maximises freedom of play and movement. For full details on uniform please see here.

What size is the nursery at Abercorn?

The nursery at Abercorn can accommodate up to 20 children in each session. Places are awarded based on registration date.
