About our Pre-School

Established in 1960, Hampstead Garden Suburb Pre-School has become a familiar and popular member of the community. Welcoming children from between the ages of 2 and 5 years, we meet every weekday during term time. We offer both morning and afternoon sessions and the opportunity for children to spend the whole day with us. Children staying all day will be asked to bring a packed lunch and will have the opportunity to rest before the afternoon session gets underway. We also offer afternoon sessions to children during their school Reception Year.

The pre-school is a registered charity and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and Barnet Early Years Plan. We are also registered with Social Services (Reg No DC0027) and Ofsted (DFEE Reg No EY338293) and are inspected on a regular basis to ensure that we provide high levels of childcare and pre-school learning. The last Ofsted Report (November 2010) is available upon request at the pre-school, the outcome of the inspection was "good" and further inspection is not required for another three to four years.
