Sam Morris Nursery is a community nursery offering both community places and private places.

To be eligible for a community place, subsidised by Islington Council, you must live in Islington. Community place fees follow Islington’s recommendations which are frequently updated. There are different income bands and you can discuss your own child’s fees with the Coordinator. (Please call for fee information)

Fees must be paid by Standing Order and payment must be received in advance. We will ask you for a deposit of four weeks’ fees when you accept a place and this will be refunded provided you give us one month’s notice before your child leaves.

The Nursery is open for 49 weeks each year. It is closed on bank holidays, for 5 days over Christmas and for two weeks in the summer, usually the last two weeks in August. Fees are payable for all bank holidays and the Christmas closure, but not for the summer break. However, the cost is spread out over 52 weeks.

We have an admissions policy which forms a part of our Certificate of Registration and which is freely available for you to see.
