Set your child up for the best start in life with Montessori by Busy Bees' Fortune Green nursery. Based in leafy West Hampstead and within walking distance from the Jubilee and Overground lines, our nursery features a wealth of excellent facilities designed to help children learn and thrive. 

We have multiple large rooms, each dedicated to a separate age group: babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers. This allows the children to develop at their own pace, and around others at a similar stage. Bright, airy, and very welcoming, these rooms give the kids an opportunity to explore the activities they enjoy most. 

Our nursery is well equipped with a variety of educational toys, role play equipment and activity corners. So, whether your child loves to read, engage in  sensory play or learn about animals with toys, there's always something to keep them happy and having fun. With the extra-curricular activities available, your little one can enjoy sports, yoga, music and Spanish classes too!

We're also lucky to have access to a fully qualified teacher at our West Hampstead nursery, allowing the children to receive professionally guided knowledge to help further their development. By following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, we help pre-school children prepare for that next big step: into primary school education. Through our ParentZone app, you can also easily keep up to date with your child's major milestones and what they’ve been learning with us. 

Come and see the facilities at our West Hampstead day nursery and preschool for yourself. Book a visit today - we can't wait to welcome you to Montessori by Busy Bees Fortune Green!

All our food, snacks and drinks are freshly prepared, on-site by our talented nursery chef. And better still? They're all included in your nursery fees. If your child has specific dietary requirements, don't worry - we can account for them. Simply speak to your Centre Director to find out more.
