Our nursery in Edgware is spread over two premises across the road from each other at a really convenient location. Separated by age of the children, the two premises count as two separate nurseries and are inspected separately by Ofsted. However, they are run under a single management team. There is plenty of free parking outside so drop-offs and pick-ups are really easy. We have a capacity for 128 children, 50 pre-school and 78 for under 3 years of age. Both premises are non-smoking as required by law.
These are some of the sample menus from our nurseries. For any specials dieteries needs or questions about our food, please contact the manager of your nursery.

As a parent I am very happy with nursery. Well trained staff and cooperative too. Myra looks forward to come here every morning and that makes us feel happy and satisfied. Thank you everyone for all the support and for taking good care of Myra.
Orin-ayo has settled into the nursery environment very well. The staff are very caring and friendly. I can tell he’s having a great time in the nursery and growing in confidence. Great environment for children’s development.
I am very grateful to Latha and Laura. Since Tavleen has joined I have seen such an incredible development from her. The nursery staff are really friendly always say hello to Tavleen. The nursery is really nice and colourful, and really nice to the eye.
I honestly recommend this nursery to all my family and friends. I am so happy with the progress my daughter has made in her first nursery at Cheeky Chums. The teachers are all welcoming and friendly and it genuinely feels like a family. Thank you all at Cheeky Chums.
We are pleased to see our son enjoy coming to nursery even when he is off he still says I want to go to Cheeky Chums. It’s his second home. He has developed very well in his communication skills. Thank you all for the support you give him. He loves you all to bits.
I am pleased with the staff of Cheeky Chums. Devinderjit is approachable and comes across with good knowledge on what the Nursery need to deliver. She always takes time to explain any queries. I very much like the fact that Cheeky Chums has adopted to teach children about the many different cultures and events
Oliver thoroughly enjoys spending time with his friends and teachers at the nursery, and is always eager to tell about his day and experiences. We have noticed a huge improvement in Oliver’s speech and listening skills since starting nursery. His imagination and independent playing has also improved, as well as his confidence generally. We are very pleased and happy with how he is developing in all areas.
Totally love that George has settled and enjoying the Fawns group. He has grown + expressing himself even more now. Happy with class teachers and key worker. George is very happy when he comes to nursery.
My name is Bhavika Senghani and I have worked in the Early Years sector for 12 years. In this time, I have gained vital knowledge that has helped me throughout my career. I have been in the leading role of Deputy Manager at cheeky chums for past 3 years and got promoted as ‘Nursery Manager’ in March 2020. Since my promotion, I have driven the nursery to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted, with a CACHE level 5 Diploma in leadership for health and social care and young people’s services.
I have always enjoyed working closely with parents as I believe good communication is the key to building a strong relationship of mutual respect and understanding. I am consistently looking at new ways of making Cheeky Chums a more comforting environment by planning active learning opportunities and facilitating a child friendly environment. My enthusiasm and creative skills have allowed me to share these skills with all my fellow colleagues and children.
As a manager, one of the aspects I focus on includes staff development whereby, I consistently encourage my team to broaden their knowledge by providing them with beneficial training opportunities. I am also a qualified level 6 ‘Special Education Need Coordinator’. One of my strengths is working with children who have additional needs by providing a safe and inspiring learning environment, and truly helping children to flourish in their life and education.
