Whittington Park Community Nursery



Our ethos

Children are strong, competent and capable creators of their own learning, which they co-construct through relationships with their families, educators, community, culture, other children, adults and their environment.


Our brand new nursery opened in February 2016.  It is located in the heart of Whittington Park, opposite the astroturf.

It has its own lovely garden which is used for freely accessible outdoor play, gardening and outdoor projects with the children.

We take 2-4 year old children who are eligible for free nursery care. To see if you are eligible please go online to https://www.islington.gov.uk/children-and-families/benefits-and-financial-support/free-early-learning.

If your child is not eligible for funding, we may also be able to take them from January 2018. Please contact us for a discussion.

We are open term time and have two sessions per day:

  • Morning session  – 9.00 am – 12.00 pm
  • Afternoon session – 1.00 pm – 4.00 pm.

We welcome enquiries. Please email Catherine Gardner at info@whittingtonpca.org.uk or call the nursery on 0207 281 1987  if you would like any information, or to arrange a visit.
