Some schools have what's known as a nursery class or foundation unit. Like pre schools, most offer care in 'sessions', often of 3 hours, for example 9am until 12 midday. In most cases they follow the same terms as state schools, meaning they're usually not open during the schools holidays.
Some have lunch and breakfast clubs which means if there are spaces your child can attend for the equivalent of a school day.
You can find a list of all the nursery classes in the borough in our families directory.

Transferring to school
It's important to remember that there is no automatic transfer from a school's nursery class to the school itself - you still need to apply to the school when your child is old enough.
