Young England Kindergarten is a family owned and operated kindergarten that was established in the early 1960’s. Our Kindergarten is situated in a spacious hall next to the gardens of St George's Square which is located in Pimlico (City of Westminster). The hall is light, airy and has a stage at one end, plus two additional teaching rooms. We have access to the large garden in St George's Square, where we also have our school allotment, which provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor play.

The morning school is available for five days a week and caters for children aged three to five years old. There is a separate afternoon school for children from two and a half to three plus, which takes place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Our afternoon clubs offer a wide range of activities that are available to the older children in the morning school on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Enrolment operates on a first come, first serve basis, as there are a limited number of spaces available.

Our versatile approach to teaching incorporates contemporary methods and maintains traditional values. This ethos stems from over 50 years of teaching experience at nursery level, and a sincere aspiration of wanting each child to have the best possible start in life.

Our highly capable team of staff have a wide ranging set of skills, which enables us to ensure that all of our children continue on to the next stage of their education with confidence and a genuine enthusiasm for learning.

Young England Kindergarten is registered under the children’s act 1989 and Ofsted 2002.
