Your Toddler Learns At His Or Her Own Pace

Your child flourishes with the materials and guidance they need to make sense of their environment. Through self-led, play-based activities, they start grasping the fundamentals of maths, science and literacy.

Lasting Social-Emotional Skills To Help Your Child

Your child is gently encouraged to take steps towards their independence as they learn in collaborative group settings. They build an understanding of a wide range of emotions and learn to empathise with others, developing positive relationships.

It Takes A Village; Get The Support You Need

If you have questions, concerns, or need extra resources to help your child and family thrive, our Parent Experience Manager is on hand to help. You’re valued as part of our nursery family, and you’re treated as such.

Your Child Will Thrive With Extra Support:

An on-site osteopath assesses your child's physical development and addresses any delays, ensuring they stay on the right track.

Enjoy taking part in our parent business community, where we network and uplift each other professionally.

Touch base on your child's progress four times a year, so you can celebrate their achievements and make any suggestions.

A Happy Family Guarantee Gives You Peace Of Mind

As part of our Happy Family Guarantee, you get two weeks’ settling-in time, to ensure that your child adjusts and that you are comfortable. You deserve this time as we live up to our promise to take the best possible care of your child.

We Keep Your Little One Safe And Happy

Attentive teachers keep an eye on your child around the clock, while features like limited-access entryways, tall privacy fences, and CCTV cameras provide the reassurance of security. You deserve to feel confident that your child is in a safe place.

An Eco-Conscious Food Program That Tastes Great

Your toddler enjoys healthy, delicious, and preservative-free foods so they can stay energised all day. We also aim for near-zero food waste, decreasing our environmental impact on the planet, and setting a positive example for future generations.

Blending Fun and Learning Through Movement and Sport

Yoga, music and dance help your growing child refine their balance, coordination, and concentration while encouraging them to develop new interests. Football highlights the value of teamwork, taking turns and perseverance, teaching the resilience they will lean on for a lifetime.

Get Regular Updates On Your Child's Day

Our convenient parent communication app allows teachers to send pictures, videos, messages and more about all the amazing things your child does every day. This helps you stay in the loop about what they’re learning, and expand on that at home.

OFSTED Rated Ensures High-Quality Care

We are a proud recipient of the OFSTED “Good” rating, exemplifying the exceptional level of care and education that your toddler will receive. This rating also guarantees that we provide the quality benchmarks needed for pre-K readiness and academic success.

"The teachers genuinely have fun with the children and each child is nurtured"
It’s difficult to put into words how outstanding this nursery is. Both my children have been extremely happy at Abacus Ark (3 year age gap). The love, care, fun and nurturing they give to the children is better than you could ever wish for. The teachers genuinely have fun with the children, and each child is nurtured in the way that suits them best.

"The teachers at Abacus Ark are loving, energetic, and work extremely hard"
Prior to Abacus Ark, I had visited a couple of schools in Maida Vale that were deemed to be the best. However, in my opinion, they did not compare to this nursery. The teachers at Abacus Ark are loving, energetic, and work extremely hard to cater to the interests and needs of each child. The teaching is of a high standard and they truly prepare all of the children for the next stage of education – primary school.

"She learned and grew a lot with Abacus Ark, I truly recommend this place"
Abacus Ark is an excellent nursery. My daughter started when she just turned 1. All the staff made us feel welcome and really good. Her key teachers took time to reassure me because I was worried. My daughter never cried and knew that her teachers would take care of her with smiles and cuddles. She learned and grew a lot with Abacus Ark. She goes to the library, to the park, she has music and dancing classes and now she is a pro at football. I truly recommend this place.

"Abacus Ark gives off such a wonderful, loving vibe"
I have had both of my children go to this nursery and I'm honestly going to be so upset when they leave. Abacus Ark gives off such a wonderful, loving vibe, every child is looked after and loved like the individuals they are. They are supported by such a wonderful group of staff, with such passion for each of the children. The facilities are great - security is very reassuring and nothing is too much trouble for them. Can't recommend enough.

"all the teachers of this nursery are wonderful & professional"
My daughter has been at this nursery since 2 years ago. Her home language is not English, so she had an anxious feeling at the beginning stage. However, all the teachers of this nursery are wonderful, professional, not rude and very active with the children. My daughter has good confidence with all the teachers.

"we have always been delighted with every aspect of the nursery."
Both my daughters have been to Abacus over the last several years and we have always been delighted with every aspect of the nursery. The environment is lovely and there is plenty of outdoor activity in fine weather. The staff are amazing with children and parents and there is a real sense of the children being individually nurtured to build their skills, confidence and esteem.

"the staff is warm and full of energy"
Abacus Ark has become part of our extended family - seeing the broad smile of the kids when they join their peers and teachers is priceless (!!) There are three things that for me make them unique: (1) the staff, warm and full of energy (2) their support, personally to understand the challenges of rising my multilingual kids, (3) the app they use to feedback you weekly with photos and videos on your kids learning journey - sharing achievements and way to engage with them in order to extend learning at home. It's been already 2 years and so far so good!

"very warm and welcoming staff that builds an excellent rapport with children."
Brilliant nursery overall, very warm and welcoming staff that builds an excellent rapport with children. Use of the web app to update parents with comments and photos is a big plus. Shame the nursery does not have its own outdoor space but compensates for this with regular trips to the nearest garden space, parks and libraries. … Overall great, especially the lovely teachers. Good management.

"Overall, very well done to everyone at Abacus Ark nursery."
This is a great nursery. My two kids come here and I have been pleased. The value for money is also brilliant compared to local ones. The staff are wonderful and positive. My kids have settled in amazingly and I think this is not only down to their personalities but also how safe and welcome they feel at the nursery. … I think the initiatives with partnering with local businesses such as the gym, library visits etc is also brilliant. Overall, very well done to everyone at Abacus Ark nursery. A big thumbs up.

I am very pleased with the education provided to my daughter. It was very wholesome, not only academic but also the arts and sports as well as etiquette and boundaries.

"The staff is so welcoming and smiling all the time."
My daughter is almost 3 years old and has been attending Abacus for the past 6 months. I cant recommend enough. The staff is so welcoming and smiling all the time. They give you great and precise feedback at the end of the day. It feels like a small family. My little one is rushing to go to nursery in the morning and I can feel the progress she has made by listening to her singing all the songs and stories she learns, colours, shapes and independent playing time as well.
