Welcome to our Nursery

Wainscot House Day Nursery was established in 1992. It is located in a large Victorian house, especially converted, with a garden and play area.

Wainscot House is located in a prominent position in the very centre of St. Albans and within walking distance of the city train station. There is a car park, which is easily accessible from the main road.

Our Day Nursery provides a stimulating and caring environment, which will enhance the growth and development of your child.

Go Green Bottoms !

We are the first nursery in St. Albans to use Green Bottoms to recycle our nappy waste.

This is part of our green initiative and our commitment towards promoting sustainability. green bottoms logo
