Harvington Prep School and Nursery is an independent school in Ealing, West London. Founded in 1890 as a kindergarten called Heidelberg College, the school was renamed Harvington College during World War I. For much of its history, it operated as a private girls' school for ages three to eighteen, with boys included at nursery, and occupied three modernised Victorian houses on Castlebar Road. In 2010, Harvington School closed its senior school, focusing instead on its preparatory school. Most recently, it has been co-educational up to Year 2, with girls continuing through Year 6.

    My daughter is 3.5 years and has been attending the nursery at Harvington for the last 9 months. The nursery has a warm and friendly atmosphere, the staff are very nurturing and I am struck by how they value really getting to know the children and bringing out the best in them follows naturally from this. There are lots of ways in which the children are encouraged to do their best and this focus makes for a very happy, productive place.

    The nursery day seems very well balanced between free play and more formal learning opportunities as well as involvement within the wider school assemblies and performances, which are always of a very high standard. My daughter loves this chance to engage with the older girls at the school and take part in these shows.

    We have seen our daughter flourish at Harvington, from the very early days of feeling anxious to separate from us to the confident little girl she has become. I would highly recommend Harvington Prep School Day Nursery.

    The focus on the children is really wonderful. They care about learning and the well being of each child. The nursery works hard to prepare the children for school and in an empowering way. My daughter gained lots of confidence at the school.

    Both my children have attended Harvington Nursery (with one currently at the nursery). The staff at the nursery are the best I have ever seen. My children look forward to walking through the nursery gates every morning. The care, learning, and overall standard are unquestionably the best. The nursery prepares the 3/4-year-olds to life in pre-prep in the best way possible. I would highly rate the nursery and the staff.

    My son was very happy at Harriginton nursery. Lovely caring staff, fun activities, and great learning. He was very prepared for the move into school the following year and had no problems settling into Reception as he was already used to the learning environment. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery.
