Located next to the Franklin-Williams Building of our South Bank Campus, in the heart of a thriving community, the Coin Street nursery – for children aged 3 months to 5 years – is purpose-designed to encourage play-based learning with interactive areas, including an outdoor play area. Children benefit from Coin Street’s excellent location with regular trips – included in the fees – to the Southbank Centre, National Theatre and Borough Market.

At Coin Street, each child is encouraged to develop their own educational interests. Parents and carers are encouraged to work with the nursery’s qualified team to monitor their child’s progress through regular contact, meetings, support groups and online.

The nursery is part of the Ofsted Outstanding Coin Street family and children’s centre, which provides a safe and friendly environment for parents, carers and their children where they can receive support and advice, access to health, education and training services. For older children, the centre offers a holiday play scheme as well as a wider programme of free and affordable activities for every age.

King’s College Hospital Day Nursery is owned by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Large open spaces in the nursery are divided into smaller play and learning areas and offer expressive art and design, graphics, an imaginative area and a construction area. There is a well-stocked furnished book corner.
