Inspiring Early Years Education
Multicultural and multilingual early years education for the globally travelled, aspirational and professional parent.
What we believe
We want to do childcare differently - focussing on fostering a sense of global citizenship and nurturing fluency in languages that matter to your child's future are our way of ensuring that the future looks brighter than today. Because we believe that it is in our children that the prospect of a peaceful future lies. And if we can all just learn to understand, accept and celebrate our differences we think our society can mature to be inclusive, diverse and accepting.

Nursery | Weekend Daycare | Holiday Clubs
Parenting can be tough. And it's getting tougher as life becomes increasingly busy. We believe that childcare can play a part in making parenting much, much easier, by providing integrated services that deliver care and support in any area a working parent has a need. So we're working on services that can deliver childcare to you at school, near work, at home and can leverage what we do to make your own parenting tasks easier at home....
Tax Free Childcare
The government's universal benefit that is not curtailed by the age of your child is tax free childcare. It means that for every £1 you invest into your government managed tax free childcare account, the state will contribute another 20p up to a maximum of £2000 a year. We offer many more programmes to reduce your fees - from Workplace Nursery Schemes where you can save over £10,000 through to the 15-30 hour funding schemes from councils.

Global, International Pedagogy
Hatching Dragons was established to provide a different form of childcare that focussed on inclusivity, multiculturalism and multilingualism for the children of our families, be they globally travelled, educationally aspirational expatriate and or local.
We believe we can do so much more for our children in the early years - it is the crucible of learning, where the foundation of our futures skills, attitudes and agency can emerge. We believe in the importance of global citizenry and in priming our children to be positive participants in a multicultural world. Through our proprietary intercultural and bilingual educational programme we aim to achieve 3 things:
Technical fluency in languages that matter to our children's futures
The cognitive impact that bilingual immersion to achieve that fluency can deliver for your child
The intercultural understanding that our global educational programme can nurture
We've developed a proprietary multinational curriculum that investigates 12 regions of the world, spending time to interrogate the people, the places, the animals, objects and cultural activities ( arts, literature, food, dance, you name it) of a particular country within that region. Ultimately, we want our children to graduate excited by the world, the people and cultures within it and primed with a belief that differences are to be celebrated
Communities that matter
We throw parties for our parents every month to bring our community together and show case what the children have learnt...
“Fantastic loving nursery. My daughter is in the preschool room and is so happy - she runs in every day. I have been so impressed by the quality of the teaching”
We believe in what we do but most importantly we want our families to as well. We regularly seek feedback from our communities via our monthly feedback surveys to better understand what we're doing right and what we need to do better to make this the best experience for you and your children. And we seem to be doing something right!
Heart it first hand!
Don't take our word for it - some of our families have left us some warm words for you to hear and share from those who have experienced what it means to be part of our family and community.
