Welcome to Apples and Honey Nursery!

Apples and Honey Nursery was set up in 1991 by Judith Ish Horowicz initially caring for 3 children.  Judith was looking for a nursery that would provide a homely environment, almost an extended family, where children can benefit from warm and loving care, one that her children could attend! And in fact, one of the initial cohort was her daughter, Michal who is now an accomplished actress and singer and who works part time at the nursery!

The nursery has consistently maintained  its original ethos and values and has been recognised as 'Outstanding in all areas' by Ofsted for our last three successive inspections

Apples and Honey remains the only Jewish nursery school in South London and, whilst situated at the Synagogue and an essential part of its fabric, it is an entirely independent organisation. 

We aim to create a warm and caring environment in which children are able to make the transition from home to school securely and where they will be happy, confident and enjoy the company of others.

We operate a key worker system and have a high staff to child ratio. We offer a happy, nurturing and stimulating atmosphere where children are both cherished and challenged.

Whilst Apples and Honey is centred on the values and traditions of Judaism, we welcome children of all faiths and cultures. Through a broad and exciting curriculum we use Jewish themes, drawn from the Jewish year to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

The nursery has completed the government-accredited Wandsworth Quality Assurance Scheme. We have hosted Senior Early Childhood Educators from China, India, Japan, Taiwan and New Zealand. In 2010, our Principal, Judith Ish-Horowicz was awarded an MBE for services to Early Childhood Education in Wandsworth.

If you would like more information or to arrange a visit, please contact Louise on the email and numbers above. 


We look forward to hearing from you and arranging a visit so you can see for yourself.
