Are you looking for a pre-school in Twickenham?

The Mall Nursery have ‘School-hours’ pre-school places available for 2023 and 2024 Reception starters.

We are delighted at the level of interest local families are showing in the nursery. As we had anticipated, the baby rooms are very much in demand with registrations now being taken for summer and autumn 2023 new starters.

We have recently had enquiries from a number of families with pre-school aged children asking about shorter days in line with our school hours and term dates. As we do not anticipate being at full capacity in our pre-school rooms until the summer of 2024 we are excited to announce that  we will be offering a school day (0845-1515) for children born between 01/09/218 and 31/08/2020 at the cost of £70 per day based on a minimum of 3 days a week during The Mall School term dates within the period 31 October 2022 to 5 July 2024.

As well as the two large ground floor rooms which have been resourced and furnished for children aged 2.5 to 4 years, we have a multi-purpose room with access to the outside space that we envisage being set up as the pre-school to Reception transition room each summer for those children about to start school to familiarise them with their new routines and get them ready and excited for the move to school.

If you would like more information about this new school hours / term time option within the preschool or would like to visit the nursery and find out more about our preschool rooms and curriculum please do contact the nursery manager, Neetha Madrira on

The Mall Nursery is a vibrant, exciting and inspiring environment for young children within a high-quality and purpose built setting which includes a large outdoor space for the children to play and learn in. The new day nursery in Twickenham will also use The Mall School’s extensive facilities including a weekly swim in the indoor heated swimming pool and performances in the 160 seat theatre.

The Mall Nursery is open 51 weeks of the year, taking boys and girls from 6 months to school age. Our approach is all about learning through play, following your child’s interests and using natural, authentic resources. Our core opening hours are 7:30am – 6:30pm. We offer an early start from 7:00am and extended pick-up time of 7:00pm by request to meet the needs of busy working parents.

Situated close to several train stations, the nursery is ideal for commuting parents as well as those who will be staying locally. Our buggy park offers a convenient storage option for families who will be walking to the nursery.

Boys and girls at the nursery will automatically be offered a place in The Mall School’s Reception class. All children in the pre-school year of the nursery will benefit from an excellent transition programme to get them ready and excited for their next school.
