Private Nursery Settings

Private nurseries, or Early Years providers, refer to nurseries providing full-time day care from birth to school age children (school age being the term that children turn 5).

Most are open all year-round and are only closed on public holidays, but some nurseries operate on a term time only basis. Your child can get free Government funded nursery education in the school year that they turn four years old, at most Nursery providers.

A quality and compliance review is carried by CEYS every two years that includes self-evaluation and consultation with parents and staff.

The Jersey Child Care Trust website provides a full list of private pre-schools in Jersey.
