"Herne Hill is a slice of the countryside in London - a bustling area with a vibrant market every weekend, and a villagey feel. With the addition of the underrated and beautiful Brockwell park, I couldn't think of a better place to live within Zone 2."

The German Kindergarten staff are native German speakers. We emphasise storytelling and reading as a way to immerse the children in a German speaking environment. The German Kindergarten is a very popular pre-school. The waiting list operates on a first come, first served basis. However siblings and children in care will have priority.
