The Happy Hearts philosophy

Our motto is ‘Inspiring Curious Minds’. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment for your child to start their learning journey.

The children at Happy Hearts have access to a secure, spacious and airy nursery overseen by highly experienced and qualified teachers, who aim to provide a caring and stimulating environment. Here your child will feel secure and loved, whilst learning new skills and concepts via our carefully planned curriculum aimed at furthering their growth and development. We, at Happy Hearts believe in encouraging the development of every child’s unique personality and allowing their individuality to blossom at their own pace.

Our excellent child to staff ratio means we can attend to every child equally and thus provide the best possible care by offering a wide range of fun, practical and educational activities aimed at supporting your child’s educational requirements and wellbeing. At Happy Hearts, we embrace the development

of emotional intelligence as a core skill that helps children navigate the complex processes of understanding themselves and others, communicating, and handling unpleasant feelings.

Our established links with several leading private schools in London means that we can help prepare your child for the next stage of their learning journey, making us the natural choice for families living in Kensington, Chelsea, Notting Hill, Holland Park and South Kensington.

    "Happy Hearts has a very homely atmosphere and the teachers always smile and treat their children. Although it incorporates Montessori education, it is not as stiff as you often hear in Japan, it has abundant activities, it allows children to have various experiences, and I also like it that it is a small group and the teachers are attentive.
