A new, nurturing kind of childcare...

Westminster Bilingual Nursery & Preschool

Our Westminster nursery and preschool is located in a wonderful Grade 1 listed building in the heart of Pimlico, replete with playgrounds and gardens. It is a truly historic setting - as the former half-form entry primary school that sat on the grounds of the jaw-dropping Victorian Gothic St James the Less Church, it is a school seeped in history and one that we've designed to be in keeping with that history (see our architectural pack from the wonderful Dodman Associates).

With custom-built furnishings that cohere around our central theme of the learning tree, the school is a 4-minute walk from Pimlico station; 10 minutes from the throbbing commercial heart of Victoria. Our private nursery in Pimlico is also close to the mainline train interchanges at Vauxhall and the residences of the 9 Elms and Battersea districts.

Within spitting distance of all of the major offices around Victoria BID, and the Home Office; DCLG; DCMS; Department of Transport and Education across Whitehall, we're a perfect workplace nursery for busy professionals who want to have the comfort that their children are nearby so they can focus on work.

Our Promise to You

Child-Centred Childcare

We make our days as action-packed as possible and believe that nurseries should not be closed shops.

This is all delivered by a fully qualified and caring team.
