North Bridge House Nursery & Pre-Prep West Hampstead has been reviewed by parents as one of only two  top-rated nurseries in the whole of North London, less than two years after opening.

The ‘London Top 20’ award from, the leading independent information source for parents, is based on the ranking of parent reviews, which shows the West Hampstead nursery received a clean sweep of 5-star reviews and a review score of 10 out of 10.

The school has received high praise for its “amazing facilities” and “wonderful familial atmosphere”, with parents commenting specifically on how their “children have grown hugely in confidence and ability” and received “the individual attention that they need, emotionally and academically.”

“It has far exceeded our expectations” and “This is so much more than I would expect from a preschool,” parents say.

Delighted Head of School, Eilish Sleator said:
“Opening our doors in September 2020 during the trials of the pandemic, we are thrilled that our parents have applauded the work of our wonderful, caring staff in creating a very unique nursery and pre-prep learning environment. To be so highly honoured with 5-star reviews in such a short time is truly humbling.

Thank you to our parents for supporting us and for recommending us to others; that kind of recognition is hard-earned and truly appreciated.”
