After a break of two years without a nursery a new childcare provider is to open this September at Holcroft Court in Fitzrovia.

The long-standing children’s nursery at Carburton Street closed in 2021 and the purpose-built site in the centre of the Westminster Council owned residential estate in Fitzrovia West has remained empty ever since.

Now under new management, Little Raccoons Day Nursery will provide places for up to 40 children aged from three months to five years.

It is due to open on Monday 25 September with opportunities to view the nursery available from Monday 18 September.

Both funded and private nursery care is available. They offer three- and four-year-olds 15 or 30 funded hours throughout the year. Government funded places are subject to availability. 

The nursery will be open from 7.30am to 6.30pm, 51 weeks of the year. Closed for the week that Christmas falls on and all bank holidays. 

“We are a small group of family-run nurseries, our first nursery opened in 2011. At Little Raccoons, we aim to provide a fun, warm and welcoming environment in which children are motivated and eager to learn,” says Bhama Rudrakumar, director of Little Raccoons Day Nursery.
