About Abracadabra Preschool

Abracadabra Preschool is a family owned service provider who has been offering exceptionally high standards of childcare in North West London for over 15 years.

Since opening our first branch in Mill Hill back in 2003, we are proud to say that our reputation in the area has grown from strength to strength. We are particularly a renowned nursery in the Colindale area due to our close connections with Barnet & Southgate College. We are looking to create the same reputation in our recently opened Brent Cross branch.

We are regularly recommended by the Local Authority professionals as a provision that has great expertise in teaching and caring for children with Special Educational Needs. We provide activities such as bucket time, to help children with their attention skills. Because our nurseries are situated in cosmopolitan areas, for many of our children, English is their 2nd or 3rd language. To support them, we have successfully proven programs in place, such as eCat (every Child a talker) and Talkboost that helps them develop their English skills. We also recently achieved the HeyL award for our Colindale branch (2020) and are working towards the same in our Brent Cross branch.

Both our nurseries are conveniently located to help serve the local community. Our Colindale branch is just a short walk away from the college and the station and our Brent Cross branch is close to the shopping centre and the station.
