About the employer

Caversham Nursery is open 51 weeks a year, from 8am – 6pm. It’s just a five minute walk from Kentish Town tube. As well as being convenient and well-located, it’s a buzzy, happy nursery that goes the extra mile for parents and children alike. It also received a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating in 2018 It has three large classrooms that take children by age; from three months old to two years; from two-three years old and over-threes in the Pre-school room. However, children can be moved between classes early if staff and parents feel that they are developmentally ready. Outdoor play is unlimited for older children – because the pre-school room has direct access to the nursery’s lovely large garden and children are encouraged to come and go as they please. Food is always nutritious and fresh, thanks to the nursery’s on-site chef who makes breakfast, lunch and tea. Nap-times happen when babies and toddlers need them – not at set times.
