Head Start Day Nursery & Pre-School

Welcome to our group of three Head Start day nurseries in New Barnet, Crews Hill and Potters Bar.  Our wonderful nurseries are warm and welcoming for children to have lots of fun and learn.

We want children to have wonderful and inspiring learning experiences whilst in our care, so when it’s time to take the next step in the journey of education and life, they take with them lovely memories of their time with us.

What our parents say…

We love getting letters, emails and feedback from our parents!

Here’s just a few we’ve received across the Head Start nursery group:-


Thank you so much to you all for all the years of looking after Esme and before that Sam.  Head Start has played such a big part in their lives and we’re so grateful for the wonderful and fun start they had.  We never once worried about them; they settled in so well and enjoyed every session.  You continue to be such a great team; it’s obvious how caring and good at your jobs you are.  Thank you again”.

“Erin had her last day at nursery on Friday and it was rather sad.  I’ve been driving there 3 times a week for 5 years between my two daughters.  The girls have both loved their time there and the staff have always been great!”

“Our three children have been so well cared for and developed so well with the support of all the staff at Head Start.  I have always felt confident that all their needs are being met and we are sad to say goodbye”.

“I am so sad to write this email as we both love the nursery and Amaia has lots of lovely little friends and adores her teachers in Nursery.  I feel so lucky to have been able to send both my children to such a great nursery over the last 4 years and will miss it greatly”.

“Both our children have really enjoyed their time at Head Start and we would like to say thank you to all the teachers for everything they have done over the 5 and a half years”.

“Between both our girls, you’ve looked after us for 6 years and not once has there been a reason to complain. The girls have loved it, and you’ve made it so easy for us as working parents.  There continues to be a little Head Start crew of friends as they get older and we couldn’t have asked for a better nursery”.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in caring for our daughters at Head Start over the years.  Both Ava and Sienna have thoroughly enjoyed their time and thrived under the care of the staff”.

“I cannot thank you all enough for everything; your support and kindness through the passing of both my parents and taking such fantastic care of our precious boys when they were so young.  All this time I carried on working in order to reach this point where I had a job when they went to school.  I would not have been able to go back if I hadn’t had every faith in your incredible team”.

“Head Start is absolutely the perfect name for this nursery. The team care so much about the children and work so hard to ensure that all of the children thrive both intellectually, emotionally and physically.  Both of my children attended the nursery from the babies classroom ‘caterpillars’ all the way through to ‘rainbows’ until they left to start school.  I always knew that they were in great hands and would come out at the end of the day full of smiles having had a great day with so much fun. Every single aspect from the development milestones to the memories and happy time they experienced at head start meant they were more than ready to start school. Head start gave my boys the best start in life and for this reason I will always have fond memories and be grateful for the love and care they provided to them.   Thank you so much to the entire team. You really are incredible”.
