Kate Greenaway Nursery School and Children's Centre

Kate Greenaway is a very friendly Maintained Nursery School for babies and children aged 6 months to 5 years old. We also offer some additional children's centre services in partnership with Islington Council such as iWork (support in getting back to work) and Clinical Psychology (support for parents to understand their children).

We are situated just behind Copenhagen Street near the junction with York Way and despite being in the King's Cross area, we have the most wonderful outdoor space which children love playing in.

We offer nursery places to both paying and non-paying parents. We can offer 'school day' places and 'extended day' places for parents who need this to enable them to work and can offer school term-time places and all year round places.

We offer the FREE 15 hours for 2 year olds. Find out if you qualify by checking here: https://www.islington.gov.uk/children-and-families/benefits-and-financial-support/free-early-learning/free-early-education-for-2-year-olds

We offer the FREE 30 hours for 3year olds. Find out if you qualify by checking here: https://www.islington.gov.uk/children-and-families/benefits-and-financial-support/free-early-learning/free-early-education-for-3-and-4-year-olds

Our most recent School Inspection Ofsted report in December 2015 was Outstanding. You can read the most recent Ofsted report here
