Westbourne Early Years Centre

Westbourne Early Years Centre is one of the centres directly managed by the council offering integrated care and education in an inclusive multicultural environment. We are a supportive setting with friendly, experienced and qualified staff including a qualified teacher. We believe that the nursery experience should teach children to be confident, eager, and enthusiastic learners. We aim to provide an enabling environment which is stimulating, caring and well resourced.

Places are offered as follows: for children under 2, these places are non-funded and are only available to working and studying parents, places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds are a combination of funded and non-funded.  Places are offered on a full-time or part time basis, as a means of meeting the needs of the families within the community.

How to refer or apply

The Centre is popular and prioritises children on whether the child: is at risk or in need; has special educational needs; lives in Islington; lives close to the nursery; is the right age for the space available; has parents who are working or studying full-time.

You can apply for a place at a children’s centre by either collecting an application form from the centre or phoning and asking for one to be emailed to you. You can then return it in person or email back. If your child is offered a place, an admissions meeting will be arranged where you can bring in the relevant paperwork (proof of address etc) and the administrator will help you with the forms that need to be signed.

Centres are not offering tours at this time but you can see the rooms through a virtual tour and/or photo leaflets. If you would like any more information about protective measures in place at the centres to minimise risk of transmission of Covid-19 or curriculum practice and provision in general, please phone and ask to speak to the Head or Executive Head who will be happy to speak with you.
