Nursery of The Year

Wednesday, October 17th 2018

Greenfields named 'Nursery of the Year'

It is a great honour and privilege to receive this award that recognises our creative and nurturing approach to children's learning and development.  Judge Wendy Scott has written the following about Greenfields;

 ‘Greenfields’ curriculum is directed towards nurturing, supporting and listening to young children through a vibrant, creative approach to learning.  The nursery school is well known for its work with resident artists, where children are challenged to think outside their own scale and experience by creating large works with new materials and considering questions of maths and physics as well as exploring a set of art practices’.

Neighbourhood Action Day at Bixley Triangle

Wednesday, May 11th 2016
Yesterday (10th May) children and parents from Havelock Children's Centre joined; Catalyst Housing, Ealing Parks Department, Local Councillors, Volunteers from Southall Transition and the Canal and Rivers Trust, to transform the unloved Bixley Triangle adjacent to Bixley Fiields on the Havelock Estate.  The children took part in sowing grass seed and planting trees.  We plan for this project to be enhanced in the future with some of the children's creative work that can be installed at this site for the community to enjoy.  It was a very wet day but a great opportunity for the community to come together.
