Registration

 

The Lodge is a long established Nursery School, based in the United Reform Church, St John's Hill Sevenoaks.  We benefit from the use of two halls and a private garden, which provides a flexible learning and playing environment.  

 

You are warmly invited to make an appointment to come and see the setting for yourself.

 

If you would like to register your child with us, please complete the registration form below.

 

Our waiting list is arranged in order of enrolling, but gives preference to siblings. We will also give preference to children already over the age of 3 years if places in that age group are available and a prior offer of a place has not been declined.

 

We continually reflect on our practices and strive to provide an environment which encourages continuous improvement.

FEES & FUNDING 2018/19

 

From September 2018 the fees will be £22.75 per morning ie. £6.50 per hour. The full fees must be paid for children under 3 years of age.

 

Children entering the term following their third birthday are entitled to receive the 15 hours per week Free Early Education Offer.  This can be accessed for 3 hours of each morning they attend.

 

The Lodge sessions are 3 and a half hours in length so we charge an additional fee for this half hour.  The additional fee is currently £9.85 per morning for the 2018/19 academic year.  This is how much you will pay per morning when your child is accessing the 15 funded hours.  

 

If parental choice is to access just the funded/free 3 hour section of the morning children will need to be collected by 12 noon.

We are very proud of The Lodge and would sincerly like to show you around.  However, during the COVID pandemic we are following the latest Department of Education guidance to keep our families and teachers safe.  As a result we are not allowed to receive any visitors into the setting.  We have, instead, created a Virtual Tour of The Lodge video.  The video is 16 minutes long and we hope it is informative and a good introduction to the ethos and routines at our school.    

 

If you would like to view the video you will need to request to be added to the following closed Facebook group.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1643497292484102.  Kindly also email an enquiry to [email protected] or complete the following enquiry form.
