We're run by a woman who's had

Thank you for visiting the Greygates website. We look after children from six months to five years old. We know it can be really hard choosing the right place for your child to spend his or her days while you’re at work – after all, they’re going to spend a lot of time there.

It goes without saying that you want a safe environment with excellent facilities and fully trained staff. But, as importantly, you need to know your child will feel happy, relaxed and secure. Basically, a good nursery needs to be like a second home. And although there have been many changes since we first opened, that’s what we’ve set out to offer at Greygates since 1954. We also provide a full learning programme based on children’s natural initiative and curiosity about the world around them.

This website is designed to give you a flavour of our nursery through the eyes of the people who know us best: the parents of the children who come here. It was even designed and written by one of our mums. We hope it will help you to decide if Greygates is the right nursery for your family. Of course, you can also read our Ofsted report.

Please call us on 020 8883 5640 if you have any questions or would like to visit. We look forward to meeting you and your child soon.


"I’m an ex-Greygater myself – me, my brother and sisters came here, and that’s initially why I chose it for Chiara and – soon – Sienna. My mother remembers Denise’s mother and paying around £10 a week for us! It’s like a home from home here, being a house rather than purpose built. You know the children are in good hands and don’t worry. You feel you’re walking into Auntie Denise’s place!"
