Welcome to Nursery
At Happy Hearts we seek to inspire curiosity, encourage exploration, and ignite a lifelong love of learning.
Happy Hearts Nursery and Pre-School is a caring, safe, and inspiring environment situated just off Kensington High Street, London. Our nursery provides the highest standard of care and education for children from the age of 2 in the most enabling environment, where they can explore and discover that learning is fun. At Happy Hearts the children begin their learning journey through fun, meaningful and carefully planned activities following their interests and developmental stage.
We appreciate that all children are at a different stage of their development when they join us, regardless of their age, so we have a strong focus on tailoring our approach so that it meets the unique needs of every child. It is our primary goal to help our children realise their full potential and become well-rounded individuals, capable of making their mark in the world.
Our nursery offers personalised learning opportunities that are overseen by competent and experienced teachers who provide a caring and inspiring experience for your child. In fact, with our excellent child to staff ratio, every child can be attended to in equal measures, therefore receiving the best possible care. As a result, within our nursery environment, your child feels safe and valued, whilst developing a range of key life skills via our carefully planned curriculum that utilises traditional teaching methods with contemporary concepts on child development. Namely, by blending the Early Years Foundation Stage with a number of early years theorists and philosophers, in particular, the Montessori Education and Reggio Emilia, we create an environment for your children to learn with natural awe and wonder.
At Happy Hearts Nursery, our children are provided with a unique learning experience that allows their individuality to blossom at their own pace. They experience a variety of practical and educational activities that are both fun and stimulating, supporting their academic requirements and personal wellbeing. Our philosophy on providing play-based and structured learning experiences in the nursery is to facilitate a plethora of learning opportunities and resources that allow for the successful next steps on the developmental milestones of your child’s learning journey.
Fundamentally, one of our main concerns here at Happy Hearts is ensuring our children develop emotional intelligence as a core skill, to help them navigate the complicated processes of understanding both themselves and others. Children with higher emotional intelligence are better able to pay attention, are more engaged in school, have more positive relationships, and are more empathetic. With this in mind, we always make sure to be aware of children’s emotions, to see emotions as an opportunity for connection and teaching, to listen and validate the feelings, to label their emotions and to develop problem solving skills.
However, the journey with Happy Hearts doesn’t end at the nursery level; we support your child as they transition to our pre-school level in preparation for the next chapter of their educational trajectory.
