A Village Nursery in the City
The Cottage is the newest setting to be opened by Magdalen Nursery and our third in Earlsfield and Tooting.
We always wanted to create a setting which captured our memories of childhood – small, sweet and simple, and The Cottage is just that! We were offered the opportunity to convert a Victorian Cottage on Garratt Lane into a very small boutique nursery setting. It was a dream come true as we have taken the best elements of our other nurseries and put them together to form cosy, intimate setting, reminiscent of traditional nurseries, with wooden toys and resources, tiny classes and lots of outdoors spaces to explore.
Magdalen Nursery, The Cottage is located in a tucked away, secluded, yet very cute Victorian cottage at the edge of Streatham Cemetery on Garratt Lane, near St Georges Hospital, Tooting SW17. It has been carefully restored to create a nursery which reflects traditional settings whilst maintaining modern principles. All rooms have only 6 children per class. Resources and furniture have been specifically designed for the nursery from wood and soft, natural fabrics. Despite it’s small size, the nursery has three beautiful gardens, with natural resources, trees, mud kitchens and toys. The star of the show in the garden is Pickles, the nursery rabbit who hops along with the children, joining in the fun!
