Our Nursery provides a happy, relaxed and stimulating environment in which children, through their investigations, play and talk, will gain the best foundations for future learning. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Our Nursery staff work with children to help them develop into independent and confident learners. Through structured play and practical activities, children are able to develop the characteristics of effective learning which are the ways in which children engage with other people and their environment – playing and exploring, active learning, and creating and thinking critically. Details of the Early Years Foundation curriculum can be seen below.
At South Harringay Nursery, we offer 15 and 30 hours places as well as provision for wrap-around care so that our full-time children can attend from 8am. until 6pm. Our Nursery is open term time only. We offer places to children starting the term of their 3rd birthday (so to start in September, their birthday needs to be before August 31st that year.

Eligibility criteria for 30 hours free Nursery funding
All children are entitled to 15 free hours of Nursery provision from the term after their 3rd birthday. Some children may be entitled to 30 hours free Nursery provision from the start of the term after their 3rd birthday. This scheme aims to help working parents, so families where one parent does not work, or both parents do not work, will not be eligible for the additional 15 hours.
The eligibility criteria are as follows:
Both parents must be working – or the sole parent must work in a lone parent family
Each parent must earn, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage. For this scheme, the minimum amount will always reflect the lowest hourly rate that a person can legally be paid. Therefore, currently for a parent aged 21-24, you would need to earn a weekly average of at least £111.20. For a parent aged 25+, you would need to earn a weekly average of at least £115.20.
Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000
