London : what is a "Nursery scool" ?
I will relocate to london on April 2008 and I'm looking for my child (3 years).
It seems that in England school is mandatory at 5 years and it's free (in public sector). Unfortunately, not before 5 years!
I read articles about "nursery schools" ! What is that ? The quality is OK ? Is it free ? If not, how can I have idea of prices ?
Many thanks for you help.

Nursery is a preschool. 4 year olds would get 12.1/2 hours (government paid) free nursery placement per week. You might get some government assistance depending on your salary. The quality is pretty good, though some would be much better than others. Check out the Sure Start website for more details: I hope this helps.
