Do half-day nursery schools exist?

Do half-day nursery programmes exist in London for three-year olds? My daughter attends one here in Canada but we're moving to London this summer and I wanted to see if there's a similar option in London.

If they do exist, does anyone know of a morning or afternoon programme in Islington or Canary Wharf?

Thanks so much!

yes, they do exist. in fact, i don't know any nurseries that don't offer half-day options!

afraid i don't know any in London though, sorry!

if you mean do they do half days? then yes, some do, but i guess it depends on the nursery and their popularity/availability of the days you want, and whether am/pm (if they have the spaces, i mean).

My DD does 2.5 days, half day PM on one day, it is that day as that is the day that had a space, but it could easily have been another day, if a child pulled out of that am/pm instead and left it free. Does that make sense?

Can't help on the actual places in London though, sorry.

Yes, lots in SW London. Can't help with those areas though. ds does 3 half days, and from Sept will do 5 half days.

Snickersnack - can you tell me the names of a few in SW London? We haven't confirmed where we'd be living and I'm sure this will swing the vote.
