The King Street Preschool accepts children from 2 years 4 months to school age. We do not have a catchment area so children from all over Cambridge are welcome.
We are open Monday to Friday. Hours are as follows:
|Monday & Thursday||9am to 1pm|
|Tuesday & Wednesday||9am to 3pm|
Please contact us to discuss availability and options of sessions.
The fees per session are £18 - the 15 hours of free childcare (Early Years Funding) can be used and we accept a variety of childcare vouchers. All Children need to register for a minimum of 2 sessions per week.
The children's learning is based in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
The manager sends a weekly email to parents detailing the planned activities for the following week so that you gain a clear picture of what your child will be experiencing and how you can support this learning.
All of our staff are qualified at NVQ Level 3 or above in Childcare as well as benefiting from a variety of other professional training including Special Educational and Equality Needs.
We offer a variety of experiences for the children throughout the year such as visits to the theatre, the library and our annual school trip to Shepreth Wildlife Park. External providers such as Leaps and Bounds (soft play) visit us at regular intervals throughout the year.
The King Street Preschool has an annual Sports Day and the children perform a nativity play at Christmas before having a party and a visit from Father Christmas! We welcome suggestions for other experiences that the children will enjoy.
Thank you for all your hard work and individualised attention allowing our little girl to settle so well into Nursery. We noticed the change in her confidence levels almost immediately and she has loved being surrounded by a lovely new group of children her age and forming relationships with the dedicated and warm staff.”
Thank you for making my little girl’s first step into education so fun and easy. She is blossoming week by week! Just like her big sister she loves going to King Street. Trips to the park and zoo she especially enjoys! Her language and confidence is flourishing.”
We are sad to be leaving King Street. Our son loved coming every day. He made many friends and always spoke fondly of the teachers. Thank you to all the staff for your hard work, kindness and patience!”
We can’t thank you enough for all you have done for our daughter over the last 2 years. She has had the happiest time at King Street. It is such a fantastic preschool. You’ve shown her so much love and kindness and helped her grow into an independent and happy little girl.”
