Learn, Discover, and Have Fun at Our Nursery in East Barnet

Welcome to East Barnet Day Nursery and Preschool. Set in a beautiful character building close to Oak Hill Park, our qualified and enthusiastic staff are dedicated to the care and early education of all children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Dedicated Rooms for Every Age Group

Your baby will love spending fun-filled days in our cosy baby room. This room has been thoughtfully designed for children aged 3 to 12 months and features a range of sensory resources, as well as a milk kitchen and a separate sleeping room.

Our engaging toddler room is for little ones aged 1 to 2 years. It is bright and colourful and has so much for your child to explore, from comfy reading corners to low-level toys and activities.

In our rising toddlers' room, children aged 2 to 3 are supported as they discover their independence. Activities are planned around their individual interests, and key skills such as toilet training are encouraged.

Preschoolers are taught by our own qualified preschool teacher, where they'll discover the skills they need to prepare them to feel confident and ready to start school.

Each room benefits from freeflow access to their own garden space.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Getting Active in the Garden

We're fortunate to have a large outdoor environment that we're able to use in all kinds of weather. There is a wide range of exciting resources to discover, to make sure your little one has as many learning opportunities in the fresh air as possible. The garden is divided into age-specific areas, ensuring your child always has the best resources to support their development.

From racing tracks and a vegetable garden to climbing equipment and play trays, there is so much for every child to enjoy.
