About the employer
The best day nursery in Paddington
Of course it’s natural to be proud of your nursery when you work with a team who strive to provide wonderful care to children every day - and I’m no exception. I’ll be working tirelessly to ensure that Merchant Square Day Nursery is the best nursery in Paddington, and to ensure that my staff team and I can take pride in the progress that our children make in their development and the extent to which they enjoy their time with us.
Finally, whilst Merchant Square Day Nursery is a Paddington nursery, we also expect to appeal to many parents across London. Whilst we’re convenient for parents living in areas such as Marylebone, Maida Vale, Knightsbridge and Kensington – we hope that you’ll consider us if you work in town and commute into Paddington Railway Station (a 5 minute walk from the nursery). You’ll find a map showing our location on our Contact Us page - as well as our contact details.
If we look as though we could provide a childcare solution for you, then we’d love to see you at the nursery and show you around - so please give us a call or pop in to see us, and meet our team.
