King’s day nurseries

Mothers playing with children in nursery

All NHS and King’s College London and Institute of Psychiatry staff can apply for a place at one of King's day nurseries.

If you have a child in one of our nurseries, you can join the nursery fees salary sacrifice scheme, which will save you money each month because the cost of the nursery is deducted from your pay before it is taxed.

All King's day nurseries:

  • care for children from three months to five years old
  • are open from 7am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays
  • cater for children’s individual needs
  • have areas for creative, imaginative, constructive and graphic play
  • include a book corner and a pre-school room
  • have a garden play area designed to complement inside play activities
  • support children who speak English as a second language.
