About St George’s
We have been providing affordable childcare to our community in Tunbridge Wells for more than 35 years. We care for children aged 3 months to 12 years in our nursery, term-time preschool, after school and holiday club.
We are the only nursery in Tunbridge Wells to provide subsidised childcare to families in need.

Our subsidised places are funded through grants from trusts and foundations, donations from corporations, community groups and individuals, and fundraising events.

Whilst the board are not expected to be experts in any particular field, they are expected to seek advice when appropriate, in order to protect the interests and assets of the organization. The board is obliged to act collectively and decisions and responsibilities are shared.
Once appointed we ask you to:
- Attend our monthly board meeting, which takes place in the evening
- Attend our Annual General Meeting
- Be available on email, aprox. one hour of your time per week
- Prepare for meetings including reading relevant documents e.g. policies and proposals
