About Us


Due to the sale of St James's Nursery, this website will shortly be transferred to St James's Pre School.


St James’s Nursery, Beckenham is based at No. 30 St James Avenue, across the road from our long established and popular Pre-school.   We opened our doors in September 2015 and are caring for children aged between 1 and 5 years old for 48 weeks of the year.   We close for 2 weeks in August, and one week at both Christmas and Easter.

We are delivering the same high quality pre-school education that we are well known for, but over a longer session time. 

The children have ample access to an outdoor space which incorporates a vegetable patch and nature activities.  We also hold  fun and educational yoga, gardening, music and cookery sessions.   Children have the added benefit of joining in our popular pre-school activities throughout the year which include our Nativity Play, Sports Days, end of term parties and trips to the libary. 

We are open Monday to Friday for full or half day (mornings) care.  We have an optional early morning drop-off at 7.30am.

Please see our separate fee and session schedule for our rates.

Our fees are reviewed annually in January.  For those children eligible, the free 15 hours Nursery Education Funding can be used towards these costs.    From September 2017 an additional government incentive for eligible parents of up to 30 hours per week will also be applicable.
