What happens at our Mini-Creche
sessions in Hampstead?

Our two-hour sessions in Hampstead begin with a welcome as children come in, followed by free play and then circle time, where we say ‘bonjour’ to everyone and sing during French Rhyme Time. Structured activities follow for 20 to 30 minutes, where staff interact with all children.

We take care of baby-change if the need arises and suggest toilet visits for older ones. After Snack Time (catered for by parents), we all tidy the room together, then we gather for our second circle time to read a story in French. We then have a dance session, which lasts between 10 to 15 minutes, before finally saying ‘au revoir’ to everyone as parents arrive to collect.

Parents are welcome to stay and watch, especially for the first few sessions to ensure their child has settled. However, most parents do make the most of the opportunity to enjoy some precious time out, dropping their children and collecting them at the end of the session. Our care is bespoke, and each family is different.

Location of our Mini-Creche

Hampstead is an affluent residential community long favoured by academics, artists, and media figures. Hampstead Heath has meadows, woodland, and swimming ponds, plus city views from Parliament Hill. Open to the public, Kenwood House is a neoclassical villa with a collection of Old Master art. Boutiques, gastropubs, and upmarket restaurants occupy the Georgian buildings and alleyways of quaint Hampstead Village.  Our mini-crèche is based in a lovely part of Hampstead where we welcome new little ones to play and learn with us.

The Benefits of a Bilingual Creche

The effects of bilingualism can help improve a child’s educational development, cognitive functions, social skills, literacy, and emotional skills that have positive effects for many years to come.
