Mildmay Community Nursery
Welcome to Mildmay Community Nursery, where children and families are valued and welcomed for their individuality. We have been providing a fun and stimulating educational environment since 1986.
A community Nursery is set up by the local community for the local community. Parental involvement in every aspect of planning and running the Nursery is essential in order to reflect the community’s needs as accurately as possible. We believe parents have knowledge and experience that should be recognised and used effectively. At Mildmay we try to foster a collaborative environment where staff, parents and children can work together for the good of all concerned. Read more.
The Nursery is open from Monday to Friday, between 8am and 6pm. We close for one week at Christmas, one week at Easter, two weeks in August and all bank holidays.
The Nursery also closes for 5 training (INSET) days a year. Parents are given one months’ notice to these dates. Read more
Tax Free Childcare
Parents are now able to set up an online account where they can bank payments for childcare. For each £8 a parent pays in, the Government will add an additional £2 up to a maximum of £2,000 per year per child. Families of disabled children receive help with
their childcare costs to a maximum of £4,000 per year.
Tax Free Childcare is available to all families with children under 12, or with disabled children under 17, if they meet the required work and income criteria. There will be an upper income limit per parent of £100,000 to qualify, and a minimum weekly income level per parent equivalent to 16 hours worked at the National Living Wage.

From September 2017 we are offering up to 30 hours a week of free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds. Please contact us for more information or visit this website to check your eligibility.
Through careful assessment we sometimes identify an area where a child may need some additional support. We always consult with parents to share ideas and strategies. The school has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who supports staff and children to identify need and plan the best support. If needed, we can seek help from specialist staff such as speech and language therapists. Wherever possible we aim to provide support as part of the usual school provision.
