An exciting opportunity has become available for a new 25 year lease on fully self-contained nursery premises at Hogarth Primary School in Brentwood.

In partnership with Discovery Educational Trust and Hogarth Primary School, EYCC are looking for a new or existing provider to deliver a 30 place early years and childcare facility for children from two years, commencing academic year 2024/2025.

The provider will enter into an annual funding contract with us to deliver a flexible range of FEEE places, meeting high quality standards.

The premises

The premises are ready to move into and, as well as the internal nursery area, the facility includes toilets, kitchen, office space and a large outside play area.

The nursery is fully air-conditioned and has its own entrance discrete from Hogarth Primary.
