At Regent Nursery we provide a happy, warm, stimulating and secure learning environment. We aim to meet the individual needs of our children, giving them the social skills and confidence they need in their formative years and providing them with a sound platform for transition into school life. Our first nursery at Pinner, Harrow was established in 2004 and we are opening our second nursery in Southall in early 2018. We offer both full day and half day sessions for children from 0 to 5 years and are open 51 weeks per year. The Nursery operates by its ethos of “Play, Learn, Create, Engage, Develop and Grow” which encourages children to combine both structured learning experiences and their natural inclination to play, explore and question, to develop into young boys and girls, ready for the challenges that growing up will bring.
