The Nursery at Harris Primary Academy Kenley is an Early Years provision with warm and welcoming staff. Our staff are a dedicated team of individuals who work together in a professional manner to promote a wide and varied Early Years Provision.


Teacher: Miss Hessell

Early Years Educator: Mrs Doh

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Siddiqui

Our highly qualified and experienced staff offer the children learning through play based experiences, under the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This contributes to the development of the ‘whole child’ as our aim is to enable all our children to have fun and foster a love for learning.  We welcome your involvement in your child’s learning and development and hold regular open mornings so you can share with their learning journals with your child and talk to staff.

We cater for children and we run two sessions per day.

Our morning session is from 9:00-12:00 and afternoon session 12:15-3:15.

At Harris Primary Kenley, we are proud of the unique provision we are able to offer our families.  All 3 year old children are entitled to 15 hours of free child care – equivalent to 5 x 3 hour sessions each week, which in most other schools is offered as a morning or afternoon session.  However, we appreciate families would benefit from greater flexibility in choosing when these sessions are taken.   For example, parents at Harris Primary Kenley can choose from the one of the following options:-

Standard 15hrs

Mon - Fri Am

(either using eligible

additional 15hrs funding or

As of September 2017 a new government initiative of an extra 15 hours can also be claimed. Please visit the government website to check eligibility and further information. 

Harris Primary Kenley believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn and visit us. We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunities for all and we will endeavour to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free to participate fully in nursery life, regardless of their race or gender.

Our approach to learning embodies a positive attitude to life and learning as they prepare to start their journey through school life. We aspire to encourage our children to feel equipped to play an active role in life as they grow and flourish in our care.
