The Bath House offers a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment where children learn through creative play and are responded to as individuals. The children at the Bath House have strong relationships with staff and are listened to and valued. Children talk of their excitement about attending the Bath House and have a strong sense of ownership and control over the activities they take part in. Parents are welcomed, included, and able to approach staff with any concerns they have, and parents feel happy and confident to leave their children in our care.
Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the government framework and standards that informs all early years childcare. At the Bath House we work within the Early Years framework and guidelines to ensure the best possible outcomes for your child's welfare, learning and development. To get a good idea of the childcare your child will receive at the Bath House please have a look at the Parent Guide to the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The Rainbow group has 16 children. Staff child ratio is 1 to 4 and all our staff are qualified in childcare. Our nursery is open 47 weeks per year and we close for 2 weeks at Christmas, the last 2 weeks of the school summer holidays, and 5 other days (bank holidays and inset day).
Children attend for 47 weeks in the year and are charged for 47 weeks.
We also offer a term-time option to the Rainbow group, which follows Hackney schools terms, and fees are charged for 38 weeks in the year. If you require extra days during the holidays these can be booked providing there is space.
There are two session options, which can be combined together:
Short Day is 9.15 to 3.00
Long Day is 9.15 to 6.00
Also Breakfast Club is from 8.30 to 9.15 if an earlier start is needed. Cost is £3.50 per day extra.
Lunch is included in the prices below, and snacks are provided morning and afternoon.

All children receive the Nursery Education Grant in the school term after turning 3 years. This grant provides 15 hours nursery education and additional hours are paid by parents.
The new Extended Entitlement grant for 30 hours childcare is a new grant which began in September 2017. This grant is means tested. You will be required to register with the HMRC in order for them to assess your eligibility. Proof of eligibility will be required on a quarterly basis. Both parents must work, or one in a single parent family. Annual wages per person must fall between £6,240 and £100,000. Please speak to us if you may be eligible and look at government website www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds
