"It offers a great selection of family-friendly restaurants and shops, along with close proximity to Primrose Hill, Regent's Part and Hampstead Heath."

March 2016


"Church End is AMAZING. It's like a pretty English village, yet you're still in zone 4. The houses are big, beautiful and full of character. Residents take care of their homes (or have gardeners who do) and it's like Chelsea (where we used to live). Homes are expensive but worth it because you still get so much more for your money here.

Mike Sweidan

"The eclectic stucco architecture and numerous trees in the area, the proximity to wide green spaces such as Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath.

Hampstead Parish Church
Are you in need of some well deserved me time? Do you feel that your toddler isn't quite ready for full time nursery but would benefit from a caring and stimulating environment to socialise with other children? We know that as a Mum time is precious and that you rarely get time to yourself to do all those things that you used to do like going for a nice haircut or doing a yoga class. Sometimes the thought of leaving your child at nursery for a full day might be daunting and you might feel that you're both not quite ready yet. We believe that providing toddlers with short bite-size sessions will give them a gentle introduction to the nursery environment whilst giving you a chance to tend to personal tasks. Our 2 hour drop off sessions have a strong focus on music and incorporate key EYFS and Montessori methods and equipment to educate stimulate and give children a sense of fun. Website


St Peters
The Philosophy at Creative Wiz Kids is a simple one. Children are all natural artists and learn best in a relaxed unpressured environment. At Creative Wiz kids the emphasis is on the artistic process not on the finished product. Although our Wiz Kids have produced lovely work, it is in the process of "making" be it Art, Dancing or Acting where children gain the most benefit. Great Emphasis is placed on play and fun. In an increasingly hurried world, we at CWK believe it is essential that children are allowed and encouraged to enjoy the play and pleasures of childhood. Website
