"PACE Fortune Green is run with great team Leaders and management - Oba is running probably the best nursery in North London (I’m a mother of 4 and saw it all)" - Parent Feedback

What makes us different is our wrap-around care.  Starting from 2 years old, we support and guide families through the EYFS (Early Years and Foundation Stage) curriculum, through the transition to school and on through our After School Clubs and Holiday Playschemes.

We have an exceptional site with large outdoor play areas which offer children the opportunity to enjoy the natural environment.  There are indoor and outdoor play spaces, a floodlit multi-sports pitch, an extensive adventure playground and garden area, a dedicated under-5s garden and play area.

"Great grounds so many areas for the kids to play." - Parent Feedback

We know how important healthy nutrition is for children and offer healthy snacks including fresh fruit and vegetables, with water and milk always available.

We are passionate about providing the best possible experience for our families, and received an Excellent rating in our most recent OFSTED report. We are constantly reflecting on ways to improve our practice and have used the Bristol Standard for the last 3 years.

What our parents have to say
