Are you looking for a nursery for your little one?

We know from own experience the process can be time consuming so we’ve put together a directory of all nurseries in Muswell Hill as well as some information you might find useful.


All nurseries are inspected by OFSTED and reports are available on the OFSTED website. The OFSTED reports give you an indication of the quality of care provided by the nursery.


The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards for development and care for children from birth to five. All nurseries must follow the EYFS standards.

As part of the EYFS all three and four year olds are entitled to up to 15 hours per week and 30 hours for working parents (eligability criteria applies), called Early Years Free Entitlement. You might be able to claim the 15 hours early years entitlement for a two year old if you receive income support, tax benefits or other benefits. Please have a look at Haringey Council and Barnet Council for details on entitlement criteria.

Every child can start free early education the term after they become three years old.

Child born between Early Years Entitlement starts
1 September to 31 December Spring term
1 January to 31 March Summer term
1 April to 31 August Autumn term

You are not only able to claim the entitlement at most nurseries, but also at children’s centres, most childminders, nursery classes in primary schools, some playgroups and preschools as well as independent schools.

The early years entitlement is paid directly from the council to the childcare provider. If you require more than 15 hours of childcare, you will have to pay the remaining chargable hours directly to the provider.
