Welcome to our Nursery. We offer up to 30 hours provision, Monday - Friday, during term-time. Children are welcome to attend our Nursery from the term following their 3rd birthday. Sacred Heart School is at the centre of our community in Teddington as as with the school we welcome all Catholic and Non-Catholic families.

Nursery Admissions


Sacred Heart Nursery has places for up to 26 children aged 3-4 years.  Admission to the Nursery can be arranged for September, January or April starts depending on on the places available. The Admissions Policy attached below details the admissions process for the September intake, if places are still available after this intake then they are offered on a first come, first served basis.


This year 2022-2023 children can attend five mornings a week 9am – 12pm and the Nursery is free of charge but as of September 2023 we will be offering an EXTENDED NURSERY PROVISION to those eligible for 30 HOURS FREE CHILDCARE and to those who are SELF-FUNDED.

Please share this news with families whose children were born between 1 Sept 2019 and 31 Aug 2020. Children are able to attend the Nursery from the term following their 3rd birthday. Local families are welcome.  As with the school, you do not need to be Catholic to attend.

The policies that govern the operation of the Nursery are the school's own policies - see Policy section of this website. Admissions to the Nursery and the School are dealt with separately, and, whilst the Nursery is part of Sacred Heart’s Early Years unit, attendance at the Nursery does not guarantee entry into the Reception class, for which there is a separate Admissions procedure.


The Nursery team consists of: Mrs Kim Dell'Anno (Nursery Teacher), Ms Lorna Hall (Nursery Assistant) and Ms Adriana Andreasik.
