Nursery Admissions

Peregrines Nursery is a co-educational nursery for boys and girls attached to Falcons School for Girls. It is situated between Putney and Barnes in a leafy conservation area in south-west London. We welcome children from the day they turn three (or two from September 2020) and pupils can join us at any point in the school year.

Girls attending Peregrines Nursery will automatically transfer to Falcons School for Girls for Reception and boys will be offered a priority place at Falcons Boys in Richmond or Falcons Pre-Prep in Chiswick as long as the school can meet their educational needs.

Peregrines Nursery Sessions

The morning session runs from 8:30am to 12:00pm.

The afternoon session runs from 12:00pm to 3:15pm and children join the pupils at Falcons School for Girls for Lunch.

It is compulsory for all pupils in the Nursery to attend five morning sessions a week. We ask that you commit by the start of each term to a set number of afternoons, should you wish to attend these sessions, with the option to add the occasional afternoon on an ad hoc basis. By the Summer term before a pupil is due to start Reception, we believe it is in the Nursery children’s best interests that they attend full days in preparation for Reception.

From September 2020

Morning sessions run from 8:30am-12:30pm (hot lunch is included)

Full days run from 8:30am-3:30pm

For the younger children (2-3), there is the option to choose morning-only sessions, inclusive of lunch. By the end of Summer Term, children will be expected to do three full days at the nursery (five mornings and three afternoons).

Extended Day Provision / Wrap Around Care

In September 2020, we are also introducing extended days that will run from 7:30am-6:00pm, with breakfast club from 7:30-8:30am and After School Club from 3:30-6:00pm (includes snack and supper). Both age groups will have access to a breakfast club provision (Early Birds) from 7:30-8:30 where children can have breakfast and start their day, and an after school session (Sun-downs) from 3:30-6:00pm which is play based and includes supper.

Holiday Provision is available for both age groups for 50 weeks of the year. Holiday days run from 7:30am-6:00pm. These will be active and fun play sessions in line with the Early Years framework.

Early Years Funding

We take part in the Universal 15 hours free childcare for Early Years scheme provided by Wandsworth Council. Contributions from this scheme are provided up to and including the term of your child’s fifth birthday. See Nursery Fees for further information on funding entitlements.

Come and see us!

We would be delighted to show you the school, to allow you to meet our staff and children, see our wonderful facilities and gauge for yourselves the happy, kind and productive atmosphere we provide.

We also host regular Come and Play sessions for parents with toddlers and pre-schoolers. These sessions are run to allow children to come and spend time in the Nursery environment. Each session will involve a mixture of craft activities, toddler-friendly obstacle courses, singing and time in the mud kitchen. We encourage parents to bring a friend and come to meet other local parents!
