About the centre 

We are based within walking distance of Caledonian Road station in the Holloway ward of Islington. We are a Bronze awarded Healthy Early Years setting and achieved a ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection in October 2021. 

Children learn through play and remain at the heart of the curriculum. At our nursery, adults are skilled in recognising where they need to stand back and observe and where they need to engage, guide, and extend children’s learning. Each day offers fun, engaging and challenging experiences which children will remember and ultimately learn from.  

We have a highly qualified, experienced, and diverse staff team dedicated to providing excellent practice. Our staff continue to develop professionally and work in partnership with a multi-disciplinary team of external professionals. We are very proud of our dedicated team of staff, many of whom have been here for over 10 years.   

We aim to build relationships with parents, carers and other family members to provide positive experiences for children and their families. The door is always open for feedback and we welcome all comments and suggestions. We pride ourselves on the attachments made with the children – which ultimately helps them to develop a sense of belonging and feel safe in exploring the environment.   

The enabling environment is ever evolving to keep children engaged in play. In addition to the daily activities, children can benefit from Yoga sessions, Forest School and music and movement sessions.
