Brand New Nursery School in Romford Opening September 2022

At Storal it all starts with the idea that every child has a different story to tell. Every child – your child included – deserves somewhere they can learn and grow. A place in which they can explore and develop what makes them special.

We are excited to be launching a brand new, purpose-built nursery school 5 minutes from Romford Town Centre. Our special blend of individualized learning and purposeful play is integral to our nursery setting which provides high-quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years old.

At The Learning Tree, we’ve created calm, carefully curated spaces which allow children to use their imagination without distractions. And everywhere possible we use beautiful natural materials and dedicated time in our outdoor play space to connect children with the environmental values at the heart of all we do.

Why not come and take a look?

Your child’s early years story begins right here

The Learning Tree Nursery & Pre-school

Living walls in our inside space bring the outside in whilst our outdoor area gives children the joy of outdoor playing and learning. Whether it’s planting seeds and picking produce or enjoying sand and water play. Come rain or shine, our sheltered area allows activities to take place outside whatever the weather so there’s always plenty of opportunity to learn and play outdoors.

We’ll spread our wings too with visits to the local park and community. And children can find quiet natural play spaces or curl up with a book if they want to take some time away from the hustle and bustle.

With separate rooms for Babies, Toddlers and Pre-school, every child can learn and grow independently with natural resources matched to their stage of development and within environments designed to foster friendships.

Our nursery community spaces allow children to spend time with children of other ages, siblings and relatives. The indoor/outdoor area offers children a rich learning environment where they can collaborate on large scale works to showcase and evolve together.

The large dual aspect dining room will be used to hold events for families and for everyday mealtimes. Meals are prepared by our own on-site chef with our older children assisting with the preparation of mealtimes.

We use our delicious, locally sourced food as an opportunity to get your child observing, thinking, talking – and starting to learn about where all that fun and healthy food comes from.


We know that balancing all your commitments can be a challenge so we’re here to make the daily juggle easier. Our nursery and pre-school is open for 51 weeks of the year. We are closed on bank holidays and for a week between Christmas and New Year.

We believe it’s very important to encourage our children to love eating healthy and nutritious food. These healthy habits remain with them through their entire lives and can be the foundation of a healthy lifestyle ahead.

Fresh homemade food

Our dedicated on-site chef prepares healthy balanced meals on a daily basis and ensures our children are offered their 5-a-day. Older children also have the opportunity to assist with the preparation of mealtimes.

Varied seasonal menus

Menus are constantly varied to encourage curiosity whilst taking into account dietary and nutritional needs.


We teach our children about different types of food and how it helps them grow, encouraging good habits for the future.
