'Children at Church Hill Nursery get an exceptional start to their education.' Ofsted 2022
Church Hill Nursery School has been going for over 50 years. If you haven't already heard about our garden, then Visiting Day is for you so you can see for yourself, and explore. You'll also meet our kind and experienced staff, and get to play to learn.
Church Hill is funded and managed by the London Borough of Waltham Forest. The school and all the extended care facilities are registered with OFSTED and are shown to meet all education and care national standards through regular inspection.
What parents and carers say about us
'You are the best nursery in the UK.' - parent, March 2019
Here's a review from November 2021:
'Church Hill Nursery was an absolute delight for our daughter, and for us. We had thought that our older daughters' nursery was magical, but Church Hill is in fact even nicer. The outdoor space is enormous, allowing the children to flow freely across activities that are both self-led and also teacher-organised - reminding me of a Montessori school. The teachers and other staff members are incredibly kind, caring deeply for the children and their families - some staying on for decades. Our daughter felt both safe and stimulated in this environment, making many friends with children and adults alike. She was encouraged to start reading and writing - not in a pushy way, but because it was clear she was enthusiastic. Of the many things I'm grateful for, the top one is the fact that the school protected the children from the pandemic - teaching them to wash their hands and stay safe, but allowing them to be young and carefree. A '2019-style experience' was the best gift they could have given our children during a very challenging 18 months.'
