This contributes to the development of the ‘whole child’ as our aim is to enable all our children to have fun and foster a love for learning.
We have 78 part time places available in our nursery, 39 per session - am/pm.
Our morning session is from 8:30am - 11:30am and afternoon session 12:30pm - 3:30pm.
Our approach to learning embodies a positive attitude to life and learning as they prepare to start their journey through school life. We aspire to encourage our children to feel equipped to play an active role in life as they grow and flourish in our care. Harris Primary Academy Merton believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn and visit us.
We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunities for all and we will endeavour to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free to participate fully in Nursery life, regardless of their race or gender.
