Holmewood 'Infants' School was built in 1958 and operated until 1982 when a change of use was established, covering the site to a Nursery School for up to 126 children. This gave us a fantastic site, with 3 buildings and 2 large outdoor spaces. There is also the School House at the entrance to the site. In 2007 the Tree House building was opened for the delivery of the Children's Centre services. Over the years the staff team have worked towards creating a stimulating and secure environment that draws from and reflects the rich cultural diversity of the local area.
As a local authority nursery school we offer free education places for children who are 3 and 4 years old. You can also pay to extend your child’s day with breakfast after school provision enabling children to stay at Holmewood from 7:45am until 6.00pm. Some 2 year olds can also come to Holmewood under the Early Learning Offer. We also offer places to fee paying families with children aged 2 years and above. We currently offer holiday provision for children aged up to 8 years old. This is based at Maytree Nursery School. You can find information about this service here.
You can find out more about the help available with funding your childcare on the new government website Childcare Choices.
