Primrose Hill

King Henry’s Road & Fitzroy Road Pre-schools

Children start morning pre-school at our Fitzroy Road centre, generally in the September after they turn 2 years old. Many of them will have spent the previous year at Beginners, getting to know the teachers and elements of the READY STEADY GO day. Children then transition to full day pre-school at our King Henry's Road centre the following September.​​

Mornings at Fitzroy Road

Primrose Hill Community Centre, 29 Hopkinsons Place, Fitzroy Road, London NW1 8TN > VIEW ON MAP

Monday to Friday, 9:30am–12:30pm

A ground–floor, flat-entry building in the heart of Primrose Hill, little more than 100 metres from the park.

 

The main teaching area is a large, community hall with brick walls, wooden floors and a wall of glass windows, creating a warm, light space. The hall leads directly out to a secluded outdoor space with a small paved area and a larger garden with flower beds, a mud kitchen and a playhouse guarded by a bear.

 

Children also have use of the upper hall, which is used for movement and dance. Children make regular visits to nearby Chalcot Square.

“It's great running the pre-school from the community centre. The children's world at this age is beginning to widen and the local events held there provide a wealth of opportunity for discussions.”
Chantal - Lead Educator

Full day at King Henry's Road

12a King Henry's Rd, London NW3 3RP > VIEW ON MAP

Monday to Friday, 9am–2pm

Option for extended day until 3pm

The older children attend our full day pre-school. The centre also has a small reception group, of up to 8 children, who stay at the king henry’s road location for a second year.

The main teaching space is a large, light, open-plan room. Wall-height glass doors lead directly out to a generous outdoor space, paved and bounded by trees and plants. At the far end of the garden is another teaching space – an underfloor-heated pavilion, with sliding glass doors, an all-weather veranda and a wonderful view of Hampstead, trees and long-distance trains.

 

Children make weekly visits to the Community Centre for dance and to Primrose Hill Park for outdoor play and Forest School.

Extended day

There are afterschool sessions for older children. An hour long, they run straight on from the regular school day, 2–3pm.

“The children love spotting the London landmarks from the top of Primrose Hill and watching the freight and passenger trains from our garden. Both inspire much play and learning.”
Ida - Lead Educator

“We just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for all that you and RSG have done for our children. Thank you for the superb teaching, care and fun your team has provided to all three girls over the years.
RSG prepared them extremely well for reception. They are happy, confident and have such a love for learning which we think RSG has influenced very much.”
