Banstead Prep School Nursery

Our nursery is open to children aged from 2 years old. Our safe, secure and nurturing environment offers a great opportunity to learn through play, ensuring your child is given the best start to their learning journey.

At our nursery, and throughout Banstead Prep School, we aim to provide an extremely high standard of education and pastoral care for all our pupils. By investing in our youngest children - encouraging their interests, promoting kindness and compassion, and teaching them how to learn - we instil good habits that will last a lifetime.

15 Hours' Free Childcare:

Pupils from the age of three until the first term of their fifth birthday are eligible to receive up to 15 hours of Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) within the sessions attended. EYFE is available for six terms, from the term following your child's third birthday until the term when they turn five.  To enable the school to claim the EYFE funding, a Parental Declaration Form will need to be completed and signed. The document will be provided by the school.

Childcare vouchers are accepted and further details are available on the Fees page.
