Hatfield Peverel Nursery

About Us

The Day Nursery opened in its present form in April 1990. It is housed in a purpose-built centre which is situated on the corner of the Infant School building at the heart of Hatfield Peverel village. The Nursery is open from 8:00am until 5:00pm on weekdays. Full day care and sessional care is available on all days. Sessional care is available as below;


  • Before school session 08:00am - 09:00am

  • Morning session - 9:00- 11:30am

  • Lunch time session - 11:30am - 12:30pm - price includes cooked lunch

  • Afternoon sessions 12:30 - 3:00pm

  • After school session 3:00pm - 5:00pm

There is a pre-school group, this runs from 9:00am until 11:30am within the Nursery, this aids smooth transition into school life. We work in close liaison with the school to promote the continuity of the Early Learning Goals through the Foundation Stage. Subject to the availability of places, children will be accepted from the age of 2 years. Places are limited and parents are asked to give written notice one month prior to a child leaving. A nursery place is reserved for a whole term, and allowances cannot be made for casual absence, family holidays etc in calculating the fee. The government funds children the term after their third birthday for 15 hours a week for 38 weeks a year. There is additional funding for 3 and 4 year old children whose parents meet specific financial requirements, see www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. We accept funding for 2 year olds who meet criteria as specified by Essex County Council. These weeks are in line with the local school term.
