Camden Community Nurseries

Affordable quality childcare and education

Places and Fees


The primary aim of CCN is to support, retain and recruit strong nursery teams, trained to a high level, which will support your children throughout their crucial early years and to continue to provide safe and fun learning environments. In addition, we are a charitable organisation which seeks to provide affordable quality childcare options for families from the widest cross section of the community.

The Board compares the cost of childcare and salaries for similar voluntary organisations in the area and are confident that CCN rates are competitive with other nurseries.

Here are our fees for all three nurseries.

Here is an explainer of our fees.

Admissions policy

We welcome children and families to our nurseries from a range of backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities and those with special educational needs.

How to apply for a place

Our nurseries are very popular so it will help if you can plan ahead.

You can put your child’s name down on our waiting list at any time. Please phone the nursery of your choice to arrange a visit and to fill in an application form, which you can obtain from the nursery manager. Filling in an application form does not guarantee your child a nursery place but it will make sure you are on the waiting list. If a place becomes available the nursery manager will contact you.
