Pascals Herne Bay Kindy caters for 2 to 5 year olds in a mixed age setting. We have three rooms – the main room for curriculum play, the dining room for meals, and an area for art and messy play. We also have a Kea Group room which is where our 4.5 to 5 year olds prepare for school, with a 1.5 hour special programme each morning. In the afternoons we use this room for our younger children to sleep.
All our meals are rolling meals, which means children come when they are ready, within the timeframe offered.
