Welcome to Vanessa Nursery School and Randolph Beresford Early Years Centre.
The nursery schools federated in 2016 to bring together the very best of early education and care to the families in the Shepherds Bush and White City areas.
We aim to provide a wide range of services to our local families including, nursery education, under 3’s nursery places including places for children who are eligible for Early Education Grant (2 Year old funding), Children’s centre services that include family support, psychotherapy, parenting advice, ESOL classes, access to midwifery and health visiting services, as well as many opportunities to come and play with your children and meet other parents.
The Nursery Schools are overseen by the Federated Governing Body, including parent governors, who have overall responsibility for ensuring that the school offers the very best standards of early education and care.
Our Nursery Schools
The Nursery School’s staff teams consist of specialist early years teachers working with nursery early years educators and teaching assistants Our Headteacher is Michele Barrett. Each school has a senior leadership team.
Both Nursery Schools are maintained schools providing a mixture of free full and part time nursery places for children aged between 3-5 years.
In both settings there are free nursery places for children under 3 as well as full time childcare which can be paid for by parents/carers.
