Zeeba Dalston is situated in the Labyrinth Tower which is part of Dalston Square, a mixture of residential properties and local businesses in the London Borough of Hackney. The nursery is just a short walk from both Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction Overground Stations and many local bus routes. We opened in June 2013. The nursery is situated on the ground and first floors of the tower. We have our own secure dedicated entrance to the side of the building as we value your children’s safety above all else. We are registered to care for upto 87 children.
The nursery is a large open-plan setting with lots of natural light. There are dedicated areas for each age group and we are lucky enough to have our own soft play area to aid children’s physical development. The nursery is very well resourced which enables us to provide a wide range of interesting and stimulating fun activities for the children to enhance their learning.
The nursery is open Monday to Friday from 8am - 6pm for 51 weeks of the year. Additional early drop-offs and late collections can be arranged to fit in with your schedule. We offer full time and part time care for children from the age of 3 months to 5 years old and we offer 3-year-old funding.
