Our nursery in Holland Road, Kensington caters for children aged 3 months to 4 years old, in small class sizes to ensure an environment in which children learn and are stimulated, complemented by the provision of home cooked food and a private garden.

Children can attend 8:30-12:00, 9:00-3:00, 3:00-6:00 (under 2s only) or 8:30-6:30 and can also opt for before and after school care.  We are open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Children can attend full time or part time.

The nursery is in close proximity to Holland Park, Kensington, Brook Green, Shepherd's Bush, and Hammersmith. We have five classes: Circle Class (3 months to approx. 12 months), District Class (approx. 12 to 24 months), Piccadilly Class (approx. 24 months to rising 3s), Central Class (rising 3s to rising 4s) and Jubilee Class (rising 4s to rising 5s). We regularly take the children on excursions to learn more about the world around them.
