FRUK Forest Kindergarten

We follow the Hackney Schools calendar and are open during term time only, (38 weeks of the year).

The Forest Kindergarten will be closed during inset days and school holidays, including bank holidays. However, we endeavour to run as many FRUK Forest School Holiday Clubs as possible. Our Forest Kindergarten children are offered first refusal on places at these, to ensure continuity of childcare, when needed.

Minimum age for enrolment at our Forest Kindergarten is 3 years.  Maximum is 7 years.

Sessions are available Monday to Friday, as FULL DAYS ONLY. We have a minimum attendance of 2 days per week. 

  • Full Day 9.15am-3.15pm – Includes healthy vegan snacks and drinks provided by FRUK.

We do not charge for any additional costs.
