Keren’s Nursery Celebrates 15 Years of Excellence
Keren’s Nursery opened as a boutique child-minder for just three children in 2004. In the intervening fifteen years we have grown to become one of London’s most sought-after independent pre-schools; a great success story, now with more than 180 children on our role.
Our nursery is a husband-and-wife-run enterprise, and today boasts a trio of thriving Ofsted outstanding nurseries in prime London locations; Hampstead Garden Suburb, our Belsize Park branch and Holland Park. Hundreds of pre-schoolers have now graduated from our uniquely family-oriented nurseries.
Keren Ben Ezra,
“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 has always been 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.
As I look back over the last fifteen years, what stands out for me is the absolute dedication and passion of our team; I credit every member of staff for tirelessly nurturing each and every child in our preschools.
We have built a reputation as leaders in promoting second language skills, especially for the many children in our communities with English as a second language. We have a commitment to teaching all children multiple foreign languages and Makaton.
Aside from that, we measure our success in the wide range of activities on offer from forest school to woodwork, to yoga and cookery, all underpinned by the belief in enhancing every child’s creativity, physical and personal growth.”

“Over the last fifteen years, we have sought to provide the very best pre-schools in London. We have led the way educationally, by integrating key trends like forest school and core strength programs like Moving Matters into our curriculum, and we have tirelessly renovated all three of our sites.
We have focused on the continued professional development of our staff by offering one of the most comprehensive in-house teacher training programs.
All our children now have unrivalled access to outdoor facilities, garden and play areas, and we are proud to offer state of the art pre-school learning environments for all children in our nurseries. We look forward to continuing on our path of excellence over the next fifteen years.”
