Our five Lambeth Nursery Schools are struggling to create a sustainable future due to rising costs and changes in funding. Please help us request a commitment from Lambeth Council to recognise the valuable service they provide to our community by committing to keeping them open and sustainably funded. Please click here to sign our petition.
As Head of School, I extend a warm welcome on behalf of Ethelred Nursery School & Children’s Centre. We have been delivering Early Years provision for children since 1975 and Children Centre services for families since 2004. At Ethelred, children are at the centre of all that we do and we are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to secure the best outcomes for our children and their families.
We were thrilled to move into our brand new school and centre in September 2018. It is a light and spacious modern building which the children and parents love. Our new facility will allow us to revise and expand our early years services. We feel our children and families deserve to have the very best and we welcome the opportunity to continue to serve our local community.
Ethelred is now part of the Lambeth Nursery Schools Federation comprising the 5 Lambeth Nursery Schools. This development is welcome as it will allow us to work more effectively together, whilst retaining our unique identities.
Our website provides information about who we are, what we believe and what we provide for children and families in our local area.
Our nursery provision offers free places to children who are 3 and 4 years old and we also provide additional places for 2 year olds under the early learning offer. Paid places are also available.
Our Children’s Centre works in partnership with health and other providers to deliver family services, drop-ins and training courses.
We welcome visits and enquires, so please contact us on 0207 582 9711 to arrange a visit and seek further information or contact our admin officer for any paper copies you might find useful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Head of School
