Community Links


Ethelred Nursery School and Children's Centre has been a part of local Kennington life for over 40 years, and in that time we have developed close links with the local community and local institutions. In particular, we have close links with the following organisations:

  • Roots and Shoots, an educational charity providing education for young people with SEN, and environmental education for all. The nursery school provides work experience for Roots and Shoots trainees, and our children make frequent environmental education trips to the Roots and Shoots wildlife garden and Natural Roots centre.
  • St Anselm's Church; in 2016 the children won best scarecrow in the church's Kennington Country Life harvest festival.
  • The Kennington Association, for whom we act as a distribution centre.
  • Vauxhall City Farm; the nursery makes several visits to the farm annually. The farm provides us with eggs to hatch and animals to pet.
  • Mary Sheridan Centre
  • Archbishop Sumner School
  • Ace of Clubs, a charity supporting the homeless, vulnerable and marginalised in north Lambeth.
