Terms and Conditions


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.

A note from the Manager

As a young girl, I always sat at home with a white board and pen pretending to teach. That became a reality when I joined Cheeky Chums Day Nursery over 6 years ago to do my level 3 qualification as an apprentice, after I had left school. Once I completed this, I had endless opportunities and progressed quickly into the management team which I am grateful for as it has given me the chance to explore the world again through little lens and to play a key role in shaping the lives of our future generation.

Working with children is truly special because the teaching and encouragement you provide directly leads to witnessing a child’s many milestones and breakthrough’s, which I find is the most rewarding part of working in the early years.

I am deeply committed to the education and well-being of our children in the nursery and my passion for creating a nurturing and stimulating learning environment that encourages curiosity, communication, creativity, and confidence, provides my children with what they need to thrive.

I am big on teaching children about looking after our planet and our world, which we focus on in the nursery especially in preschool. By doing this, it has helped children to be responsible, and foster their love for nature and the environment they live in.

I am a big believer in parent partnership being key to a child’s development as it allows children to gain the most out of their early education and reach expected levels of development. I hope to ensure that all parents are involved as much as possible while they are here with us at Cheeky Chums Day Nursery.

I look forward to continuing to make positive changes at the nursery to provide the finest childcare.
