About Finchley

Right in the heart of Finchley Central just minutes walk from the tube, we aim to offer every child a rich and stimulating nursery experience while working in close partnership with parents. We include a diverse range of inclusive classes and trips which you and your child can attend regardless of whether they take place on days when your child attends or not. We also use an industry leading online learning journey called Tapestry with which we can work even more closely with you to nurture your child's development and confidence at all levels.

Before starting with us, there will be an opportunity for your child to make two pre-start visits and to discuss his/her individual needs. We operate an inclusive approach whereby all families and children are welcome.

Stay & Play

Once you have gone on our waiting list we offer a fantastic opportunity for you to get to know the staff and for your child to interact with them and the other children. Simply ask a member of management to book you a Stay & Play session and you can bring your child into the nursery and stay with them for an hour in the room they would be joining. You can enjoy as many of these sessions as you wish leading unto your start date, and they are completely free.

We looking forward to meeting you!
