We provide care, education and preschool activities for young children aged between 2 and 5 years old.
We open during term time only and follow the school term dates set out by the London Borough of Bromley:
Monday: 9am until 3.45pm as a full day session or split as half day sessions of 9am until 12.45pm/12.45pm until 3.45pm
Tuesday: 9am until 12.45pm
Thursday: 9am until 3.45pm as a full day session or split as half day sessions of 9am until 12.45pm/12.45pm until 3.45pm
Friday: 9am until 12.45pm
Attendance at St James’ preschool is subject to minimum attendance requirements:
Any deviation to these requirements is at the absolute discretion of the Management Committee.
We run a daily snack bar for the children where a selection of water, semi-skimmed milk, fruit, vegetables, rice cakes and breadsticks are provided. Children choose when they would like a snack and what they would like to encourage independence.
Water is always available and accessible to children through the session.
We obtain local authority funding for eligible aged children and those that qualify for 2 year old funding. Currently this is 3 hours per session, up to 15 hours per week. Please note we do charge top up fees for the session time not funded. To secure your child's place at St James' Preschool, we require a £50 registration fee, which includes a preschool t-shirt.
