About Kensal House Nursery
Opening in September 2022 in a beautiful Grade II listed building, Kensal House Nursery represents the pinnacle of aspiration for Early Years settings in the UK. From day one, the team behind Jaego’s House, all parents with children under eight, were adamant that a thriving, vibrant nursery must be a central part of what we do. A nursery that ticks every box imaginable for parents and is a home from home for young children.
 

Overlooking the canal in Kensal Rise, it sits alongside Jaego’s House, a revolutionary co-working and leisure space for kids and grown-ups alike. Featuring a Jungle Gym and Soft Play, a Kids’ Cinema, Gym, Library, and Co-working Office, while there are also Treatment rooms, Studio, and Fitness Classes for kids and adults, as well as a stunning restaurant and waterside café.


Kensal House Nursery benefits from the infrastructure of Jaego's House, whilst also providing an exceptional, Ofsted-registered nursery setting with a dynamic management team and inspirational educators. We will celebrate, encourage and develop every child’s uniqueness, while fostering an atmosphere of togetherness, kindness and sociability.
