About the employer

N16 Tots Nursery is a small family run nursery that opened in April 2013. It is a privately-run provision. The nursery operates from a refurbished building, which has been renovated to meet the needs of the children attending. It is situated conveniently just off Stoke Newington Church Street in the London Borough of Hackney.

The nursery serves the local and wider community and is open 48 weeks of the year, closing for two weeks over the Christmas period and two weeks during the Easter holidays. It is open Monday to Friday from 8am until 6pm. Children may attend on a part-time or full-time basis.

​The nursery operates over two sites. The baby room which caters for children 6months-2 years is based at 4 Defoe Road. The Pre-school room which caters for children 2-5 years is based in the mezzanine at Abney Hall on Stoke Newington Church Street. The bright and airy rooms are well equipped and provide a safe, stimulating environment where your child can enjoy growing into a confident, independent and sociable young person.
