About Happy Hearts


"Education is a developmental matter that embodies holistic, systematic, rigorous, and stimulating pedagogical tools that foster the child’s ability to become emotionally intelligent, morally responsible and reflectively self-confident."
Dr. Nahal Jafroudi Owner and Principal

Happy Hearts Nursery and Montessori School

Everyone at Happy Hearts is here to help each child at the very start of that journey. We aim to guide them towards the goal of realising their full potential, and becoming well-rounded individuals capable of making their mark in the world. Within our happy, calm, secure and stimulating environment, our highly qualified staff utilise their relentless dedication to the children in our care to become successful learners, assured members of society and considerate individuals. Children grow and transition through their learning curve at a fast pace during these early years. Because of this, it is crucial that they spend these foundation years in the right setting, one that will help them achieve as much as possible.

Located at the top end of Kensington High Street, Happy Hearts is the natural choice for families living in Kensington, Notting Hill, Holland Park and South Kensington. We welcome children from the age of two years and hope that they will stay with us until they are five. Our established links with several of the leading private schools in London means that we can help you prepare your child for the next stage of their learning journey.

Inspiring Curious Minds

A nurturing environment

Happy Hearts is a term time, sessional nursery catering for children from 2 – 5 years old. We care for children in a well-planned environment 5 days a week from 9am until 3:30pm. 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 happy and a stimulating environment where children feel secure, learn effectively, and grow in confidence.

We nurture the belief that going to school is a positive, constructive part of a child’s life. This starts with the physical and fun learning environment that we provide. Our bright and spacious setting provides an optimum environment for children to enjoy all of the activities on offer. We also make sure that children can safely access a quieter spot for reading, thinking or observing if they need to.

We have a clear vision of what we want to achieve at Happy Hearts; to provide a safe, happy, caring, secure and stimulating environment for each child. Enabling the children to reach their full potential, promoting self-confidence and positive attitudes. We want to develop the children’s role as citizens of the world as well as their sense of community, ensuring equal opportunities in all aspects of school life. We believe that improving the life chances of our children through high quality teaching and learning should be at the heart of all that we do.

“Our motto at Happy Hearts is ‘Inspiring Curious Minds’.”

We place immense value on discovering the unique voice within each child. Our philosophy is about inspiring the children’s love of learning, awakening their natural creativity, and developing their inner confidence to make positive choices throughout their lives. One key aspect of our ethos is to encourage children to respect and care about each other, as well as themselves, whilst learning to thrive as part of a group.

Good nursery education is a fundamental part of a child’s early years. A stimulating environment, with warm, responsive guidance in the right setting supports better language and cognitive skills. We help your child to feel excited about learning, and confident about developing their abilities. We offer a balance of free choices between learning through play and structured sessions so that your children’s first experience of nursery is a rewarding and an enjoyable one providing them with a solid foundation for their future development and education.Read more...
