York Gardens Nursery

Our nursery is located within the Children’s Centre in York Gardens, Battersea.  The nursery has great resources and learning opportunities for all children and two outdoor play areas. The highly qualified and experienced team helped the nursery to secure their ‘OUTSTANDING’ rating in all areas in our latest Ofsted inspection (June 2017).

If you would like to visit the nursery, that enables access for all children, please contact us to arrange a visit for you and your child. Our nursery manager will show you around, provide you with more information about the nursery and discuss your child’s individual needs. We hope that your child will enjoy their visit and get to see and join in with some of the activities we provide for our children.
