Treehouse Nursery School

We’ve been taking care of your children since 1991, providing a safe, happy and healthy environment for the youngest people in our communities to grow, learn and have fun.
Treehouse looks after children from three months to five years at Ofsted-registered nurseries in Wanstead, London, as well as providing secure and outstanding breakfast and after school clubs. 
For the children in our care, it’s a home from home. Healthy meals, lots of fun activities, opportunities for social development… and a commitment to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
With more than a hundred members of staff, including teachers, nursery practitioners and nutritionists, we’re proud of our adult-to-child ratio. But we never forget that every child is an individual – so activities (indoors and outdoors) are tailored to their needs, including those with physical disabilities, learning difficulties or complex medical conditions
We’re a family-run organization and we promote family and multi-cultural values. That means every child is treated as if they were our own, giving busy parents complete peace of mind – from the moment they drop off their child to the moment they pick them up.
