Term Dates

Little Darwins Nursery generally follows the Essex County Council set term dates and you can download our specific term dates from the links below. 


Little Darwins is open 51 weeks per year. 


For term time children we will close on Wednesday 19th December 2018.  Please note that we will close at 3pm on Monday 24th December 2018 for our all year round children.


We re-open on Wednesday 2nd January for our all year round children and Thursday 3rd January for term time children.  However we have a training day on 3rd January and therefore if your child is 9am - 3pm and fully funded they will not return to nursery until 4th January 2019.


We also have a training day each term where children, whose funding covers the whole of this session e.g. 9am - 3pm will not attend.  This may apply to your child even if your funding is stretched across the whole year. 


Please ensure you make alternative childcare arrangements on these days.  If you have any queries regarding whether this applies to your child please speak to the office.


Our Training Days are:

Tuesday 4th September 2018

Thursday 3rd January 2019

Wednesday 10th July 2019
