About Homerton Children's Centre

Our history

Homerton was originally a Nursery School built in 1940 in the grounds of Homerton College with the intention of providing care for evacuee children and training opportunities for Homerton students. It moved to its present site in 1968 and was extended to include a large multi use community room in 1999. The Centre is located in a quiet residential area in the City of Cambridge just off Hills Road.

In recognition of our achievements as providers of quality early years education, the school was awarded Centre of Excellence status in 2003, and has had an extensive building programme which included training facilities/community and health area and improvements to current accommodation. The outside area has been landscaped and includes improved facilities for children’s outdoor play.

In addition to providing quality Early Years education, we offer training in ICT and many aspects of the Early Years curriculum, support for childminders, wrap around provision for children attending the Nursery School, parent support, and visits from other professionals.

There are a variety of drop-ins for parents and children aged 0 - 4, advice and information for parents, and outreach work beyond Homerton Children's Centre. 

 The school is subject to regular OFSTED inspections, and our most recent outstanding report (February 2007) is available on request or you can view it on their website.
