Little Hearts Pre-school is a separate independent organisation working in partnership with the school and Sacred Heart Kidz Klub to offer a full extended services programme designed to complement the school's timetable and help our families.
Little Hearts Pre-school provides care for children aged 2 1/2 to 4 years of age. Little Hearts is government funded for 2 and 3 year olds accessing both 15 and 30 hours per week of childcare. The 15 hours can be taken however parents wish, for example 3 hours every morning or every afternoon, or parents can use the hours over 2 1/2 full days.
To receive a free place, parents need to apply to Merton local authority. Little Hearts staff can help with this. Parents who pay for their child's place can pay by cheque or childcare vouchers.
Little Hearts is open Monday to Friday 8.40am to 3.30pm term-time only. A holiday club run by Kidz Klub operates during most school holidays.
Morning session (8.40 am to 11.40 am)
Afternoon session (12.30pm to 3.30pm)
Full Daycare (8.40am to 3.15pm)
Extended day for Pre-school children in partnership with Kidz Klub (7.30am to 6.00pm)
Invoices are prepared half termly and parents can decide whether to pay weekly, monthly or for the half term.
Little Hearts aims to provide a safe, stimulating and culturally enriched care for all children enabling them to learn and develop:
This is achieved through offering structured play activities supporting all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. All our staff are qualified, DBS checked and first aid trained.
Little Hearts Pre-school's Ofsted registration number is EY422235 and the provision was graded GOOD by Ofsted at the last inspection in April 2022.
