Harpenden children's preschool and nursery is set in a beautiful converted Victorian house with rooms spread over three floors, including a 'must-see' log cabin nursery room. We are located within the catchment of many schools which include Roundwood School and Woodend School.
We have seven bright and spacious rooms filled with high-quality furniture and resources for learning, exploring and investigating. In the main building, we have five rooms for our three month olds to two and a half year olds and a further two buildings for our nursery and preschool children. At our preschool and nursery in Harpenden, we have large outdoor play areas which give the children awareness of space through physical challenges, discovering nature and learning about the environment.
The children benefit from extracurricular activities including French lessons, a Little Kickers football session on a Friday morning. Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food, sourced from trusted suppliers is prepared and cooked by our very own chef. Menus change seasonally and cater for all dietary and religious needs.
We will be delighted to welcome you to Harpenden preschool & nursery. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff is on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.
