Welcome to Keren's Nursery
Keren’s Nursery’s unique “home away from home” atmosphere means that children feel secure in their surroundings. Our family-style approach to nursery learning has attracted cosmopolitan families since 2004.
Keren’s Nursery comprises of four nurseries with branches in Hampstead Garden Suburb, Belsize Park, Holland Park and Wimbledon.
We are best known for family-style care, the home away from home warmth and nurturing we offer to every child, and our cosmopolitan outlook.
Families are drawn to us because of the sense of belonging and welcoming communities we have built at each of our branches. Every child reaches their full potential when they become part of our extended family.
For us that’s about getting the balance right between learning, playing, communicating, time spent outside and physical development.
Our aim is to educate confident, independent children who are upright citizens of the world. We aspire to instil pre-schoolers with a sense of resilience, confidence and self-motivation. At the same time, we encourage children to be proud of what makes them unique – whether that’s their first language or different customs at home.
We do this by providing a secure environment in which children are encouraged to take risks and make their own choices.
Languages are a big focus in our nurseries from an early age. A different language is taught every month. Bilingual children with English as a second language are well catered for in special small circles to enhance their language skills. All branches are Forest School accredited.
We have a strong belief that time outside, independence and creativity are key for happy children. Children play outside daily. Every child over the age of three takes part in weekly Forest School sessions.
Specialist teachers come in to teach yoga, zumba, music and sports, and additional classes can be taken in woodwork and cookery.
Just like our children, teachers at Keren’s Nurseries are learning and developing all the time too. We run a comprehensive on-going programme of teacher training and development.
All teachers are qualified in the Occupational Therapy-based programme, Moving Matters.

Like all parents, my child is my soul, and leaving her anywhere was always hard. But when we leave her at Keren, whatever the mood, we feel safe, and she is happy and learns so much. It is perfect. She learns a ton, she is outside, she feels safe, she loves her teachers. Best judgment!
I highly recommend the nursery for early education as it provides a nurturing environment for my two kids. The forest school activities engage their curiosity and foster their love for nature, promoting a holistic learning experience. The tennis sessions not only teach them physical coordination but also promote teamwork and discipline. The opportunity for them…
Keren’s Nursery is incredibly welcoming and nurturing for children and parents. We have had our 2 children at Keren’s (our daughter is still attending) and have had a great experience. The space is divided in 3 levels occupied by different age groups. There is a strong educational focus especially in the older age groups where…
My son has always been a very happy and confident child, but starting him in nursery as a first-time parent made me really anxious. Since starting at Keren’s at 12 months of age he has never once cried when I dropped him into nursery even on his very first day without me. When he knows…
Our kids love Keren’s Nursery. They started in the baby room and run in everyday beaming. We’ve seen their confidence and independence develop over the last 3 years and believe the care, attention and activities organised by Keren’s teachers have contributed greatly to this. We love the variety of activities offered, the focus on learning…
We put our first child in Keren’s Nursery after our good friends told us how pleased they were with their experience there. We couldn’t be happier we did. The staff at Keren’s are so kind and caring and show true compassion for the well-being of the children. The curriculum is incredibly thoughtful and if you…
