Binky's

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
