Mount Vernon Day Nursery and Preschool

Mount Vernon Day Nursery and PreschoolMount Vernon Hospital, Rickmansworth Road, Northwood, London, HA6 2RN
Grow, learn and discover at Mount Vernon

Set across two buildings, Mount Vernon Day Nursery and Preschool is an enriching environment for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Our Ofsted 'Good' rated nursery in Northwood features additional specialist rooms and a wonderful 'forest school', ensuring your child has the very best nursery experience.

Creating a Love of Learning

Our baby room is the perfect place for your little one to relax and play while enjoying a stimulating environment.

Toddlers love having direct access to the garden in their room, as well as getting busy in the construction zone.

Preschoolers have their own breakout rooms where they can focus on reading and gentle lessons to prepare them for school. Children from 3 to 5 are even given a 'uniform' of polo tops and sweatshirts to help them get excited about school.

Little bookworms will love spending time in our library, where we follow a reading scheme to encourage your child's love of reading.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it 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 development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Our Ready For School Programme - we introduce your child to maths, reading, writing, and art, and focus on growing the skills and knowledge they'll need to be prepared for school and beyond.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.

Lots to Explore in the Gardens

Your little explorer will love making exciting discoveries in our extensive, landscaped gardens. Our outdoor area is split so every age group can get the most from the outdoor space. We also have an exciting Forest School area, where your child can build dens and make bug hotels.

Additional Specialist Rooms

Our Northwood nursery has several specialist rooms for your child to enjoy. These include a sensory room specially designed for children with additional needs, an indoor soft-play room and a dedicated parents' room where you can relax as your child settles in.

All-Inclusive Nursery

So you don't have to worry about bringing the extras, we include all the daily essentials such as healthy and nutritious meals, snacks, formula, nappies, wipes, nappy cream and sun cream.
