A message from the manager

My name is Natasha and I am the Nursery Manager at Fire Station Community Nursery. I have an Early Years Foundation Degree, SEN level 4, Advanced Safeguarding and 'Trainer for Trainers’ qualification, which allows me to train others in Safeguarding, Certificates in Paediatric First Aid , Safer Recruitment and many more. I have worked in childcare for over 20 years and have worked my way up from nursery practitioner, so my knowledge comes from hands on, practical experience which I use to support my team.
I take great delight in working in partnership with parents and building strong relationships with them. I have a passion for seeing children develop while learning through play, experimenting and having real life adventures. I like to spend as much time as possible in the rooms, getting to know and observing children and staff during their action packed busy days.
We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

Please note The Old Fire Station Nursery is offering the 30 Hours from 1 September, 2017. This is open to working parents of 3 & 4 year olds. There are a limited number of places available so please contact Natasha your Nursery Manager for details.

We are located in Stoke Newington, providing care and education for children from birth to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
