The Crown Nursery is a brand new, independent setting in the centre of St Margarets, Twickenham.  It was established by local resident Charlotte, who is an experienced primary school teacher, with a passion for child development and the magical early years. As a mum of three, Charlotte understands the challenges parents face, juggling work and life commitments.  She set up the nursery to support families by providing excellent childcare, in a conveniently located setting.  Charlotte has a deep understanding of children and how they learn.  The Crown Nursery offers a professional, yet comforting environment, where children are nurtured, listened to and cared for.  Their sense of well-being is prioritised in order that they can develop and grow with confidence, and are well prepared for a life of learning.
