The Wandsworth Preschool, one of The London Preschool Limited nurseries, opened in September 2016. Set in the Riverside Quay area of Wandsworth, the nursery has been designed to provide a spacious, warm and stimulating environment for children aged three months to five-years-old.

Specialist teachers and specifically designed laboratories support children’s progression in performing arts, art, science and technology, as well as the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The nursery develops a unique curriculum for each child focused on their needs, talents, abilities and interests which encourages children to explore, discover and learn.

Children have the opportunity to play in the outdoor play space each day and enjoy the opportunity to move about freely, climb and balance, grow vegetables and enjoy a wide range of activities outside.

Children are provided with organic, nutritious, age-appropriate, nursery cooked meals. The four-week rotating menus are designed by a nutritionist. The chef has an innovative approach to the meals she cooks and is expert at cooking sugar and salt fee meals that look and taste amazing. The nursery was inspected by Wandsworth Food Hygiene in January 2017 and received a Five Star Food Hygiene rating.

The Wandsworth Preschool uses cutting edge technology to support the nursery functions. Entry to the nursery is gained through biometric fingerprint recognition to ensure the children’s safety. Parents have access to CCTV camera footage and can observe their children whilst they are at nursery.

Parents have access to their children’s learning journals online and can view observations and assessments of their children on their phones or tablets. Children use touch screens and tablets to support their learning in the preschool's Science and Discovery laboratory.

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for The Wandsworth Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Wandsworth Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.917 for The Wandsworth Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.917

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 3.958 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Wandsworth Preschool is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.208

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

This is a fantastic nursery and I was so relieved when I found them as all of the other nurseries I had visited, left me feeling sad about leaving my daughter there and believing that my expectations had been too high. However, this nursery had everything I was looking for, a high adult to child ratio, warm and friendly staff who genuinely focused on my daughter and got to know her quickly, a high level of training and professionalism without feeling formal and stuffy as well as a beautiful, spacious, bright, immaculate and stimulating space. Although for us, the most important thing was the adults' attitude towards our daughter and the amount of focus she would receive, I was really impressed by the range of activities on offer and the opportunities that children have to be exposed to so many different types of experiences including art class, science lab, music room (with stage!) and lovely outside space. They also hold really sweet family events e.g. at Halloween and Christmas.

We are very happy to recommend The London Preschool. Our 3.5 year old son has autism and is happy and thriving in a wonderful and supportive environment.

The nursery has a very calm, sociable, and relaxed atmosphere. The staff have made a huge effort to include our son in all the activities and ensure the appropriate SEN support is in place. We can't fault the facilities, safeguarding and cleanliness of the nursery.

We're so pleased with how well he has settled in and wouldn't choose anywhere else.

Staff are personable with an infectious family feel with professionalism - key to our baby already forming strong attachments to her Mentor, the assistant(s) and the Principle, because of this,
our 7-month baby settled within a day! The staff complete/share a detailed sheet of baby’s day. They also log photos, videos with notes bi-weekly onto Tapestry online, assessing baby using the EYFS statements and record her progress on an online Learning Journey, as well as verbally discussing baby’s pursuits at the end of each day. The cameras allow us to watch in real-time, as well as monitor the care first hand. The fingerprint technology access for the front entrance/nursery is very reassuring. Baby learns in the baby room, outside in the garden and in the sensory room, which has helped her good progress. The nursery has a specialised massage teacher who comes to teach baby massage weekly. Babys Mentor and assistant have gently begun to help baby know right from wrong and to use good manners.

We were incredibly fortunate to find The Wandsworth Preschool for our daughter. (aged 18 months) Apart from being extremely high-tech (parents fingerprint access, CCTV, electronic daily updates or progress) they also offer so much more- all with a focus on development and wellbeing. The staff are absolutely wonderful who genuinely care about the little ones and spend time with the parents to understand their preferences for the child's needs. The brand new, well-designed facilities (inside and out) are a welcome sight every morning to children and parents alike.
