Little Garden Hammersmith
The Hammersmith Day Nursery & Preschool, rated Good by Ofsted, offers a warm and friendly welcome where children aged 3 months to 5 years can have fun and let their imaginations run wild with curiosity.
Located on the ground floor of a modern development in Richford Gate, the nursery provides inspirational learning experiences, both indoors and in our outdoor play area. Parents tell us they love the daily updates and photos they receive about their child’s activities.
Our long-standing team of Early Years’ practitioners provide a stable environment where we strive to nurture, inspire and care for every child, helping them to achieve their full potential.
Our learning hub is about “readiness for school”. It gives our preschool children the opportunity to be ready for school emotionally as well as academically. Activities are carefully planned and structured to promote literacy, pre-writing, maths and science; promoting curiosity and allowing children to understand and take risks. This approach builds upon building their confidence and eagerness to learn.

Working with children is an absolute pleasure, seeing them grow and develop, watching their characters and personalities shine each day.

Our fantastic staff team ensure that children are inspired, cared for, and nurtured every day.
