Quick Links: Day Nursery

We do not have a day nursery here at The Orchard Children's Centre - details of our parent and child sessions can be found in our current Activities Timetable.


Did you know working parents may be eligible for 30 hours funded childcare - a new initiative from the government starting this September? It builds on the offer of 15 hours funded childcare already available to all parents of 3 and 4 year olds. If parents want to start using their extra funded hours this September, they must apply and have their eligibility code by 31 August 2017. Otherwise they won't be able to use their extra hours until January 2018. Parents can find out more and apply through www.surreycc.gov.uk/30hourschildcare or find more information on the website of South Camberley Infant and Nursery School  (we are on the site of the James Road Campus).


The Family Information Service are an internet, telephone and outreach service providing information, advice and assistance to parents of children and young people. Click here to view the Surrey Information Service.

The different forms of childcare are described below:
