Early Years, Reimagined

Kido Crouch End

Located on the edge of Crouch End’s bustling town centre, is our largest London preschool which has over 6,000 sq ft of space for your little ones to explore. The purpose-built nursery includes large classrooms which let in plenty of natural light, as well as a huge indoor stage, for performances and assemblies. Kids will love running around our large outdoor area or discovering fun toys in our indoor play zone.

By parents, for parents

We are owned and operated by a group of parents from all over the world. We were set up in response to our founders’ struggles as young parents in different cities around the world. So, since our first school in Hong Kong in 2014, we’ve been obsessed with two things: improving learning outcomes for children, and our service to parents.

Very flexible especially with accommodating for days of the week, as we were going through a lot of changes at home. Our son now really loves going there and has settled in really quickly. Definitely recommend!

Mehdi Z, Parent

A fantastic nursery with great staff. Really takes care of my daughter and provides regular updates on daily activities and also on the learning /development. My daughter thoroughly enjoys going to nursery each day she is there. I can’t recommend it enough.

Darren C, Parent

We moved our daughter to Kido in January having recently moved to Crouch End from Islington, where she was at a different nursery. We were naturally nervous about the move, but our daughter settled in very quickly with the help and support of all the lovely staff. We've never felt anything other than positive when dropping off/picking up/discussing activities and care. Our little girl now likes nursery so much that she acts out parts of her day there at home with us!

    Kido's COVID Response

    In line with the current government guidance, Kido nurseries remain open. We continually adhere to best practices around enhanced cleaning, social distancing, the regular taking of temperatures and maintenance of strict bubbles to limit disruptions in the event of a COVID-19 case. Out of hours tours remain available throughout the week.

    Our philosophy

    The nursery is inspired by Reggio Emilia’s philosophy. Children have the space to find something that encourages them to discover, play and learn in every corner.

    We believe that a combination of free and structured play, an engaging and interactive learning environment, and an abundance of love, care and attention provide the most solid foundation for children in the early years.

    Food & Nutrition

    Your little one needs lots of energy to learn and play. Our healthy, nutritious meals will make sure they've got plenty. We serve breakfast, lunch and a healthy snack too. We also have vegetarian options and are happy to chat about any specific dietary requirements your child might have.

     
    Our People

    All of our teachers are formally educated and have a wealth of experience in the childcare industry and a genuine passion for teaching children. We put our heart into it and welcome teachers from different nationalities and cultures.

    This along with the 100 hours' internal training is all to ensure we give your child the very best learning and development experience while they're in our care.

    Parent Communication

    You won't miss a moment of their development. Through our app for parents, you'll get regular updates, pictures and communication from your child's teacher throughout the day. Also during pick-up and drop-off we'll be sure to talk through anything you need to know and answer any of your questions.
