Henry’s Kindergarten will be closed all week, commencing 1st November 2021, due to Covid.
Circumstances have led to there being no management available due to a positive covid result.
As the Statutory framework for the early years’ foundation stage requires a manager to be on site in order for us to offer childcare, we have no option but to close the nursery. I am aware of the difficulties this will cause to our parents, however, we have explored all avenues to ensure that closure could be avoided.
I apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.
Henry’s Kindergarten is owned by The Henry Beaufort School and benefits from being in a rural position, which is surrounded by school playing fields and country views. The nursery is open 51 weeks a year from 7.30am to 5.00pm, with the opportunity for your child to attend Late Bears Club at 5.30pm (small charge applies).
The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, which offers children aged birth to five years of age, suitable activities for their individual developmental needs. Continuous provision is offered to all children throughout the day.
The nursery’s open plan design, offers division within three main rooms, allowing the children to socialise with similar aged peers and offering opportunities to learn through each other.
We have been voted one of the top three nurseries in Winchester! Follow this link to find out more: https://threebestrated.co.uk/nursery-in-winchester
