During the epidemics, many families left London to settle in the countryside or provinces. Some families left the UK following Brexit. I read that there are almost 20% fewer children in London. Despite this unfavorable environment, Les Petitz Etoile is very quietly approaching the start of the school year. The teaching teams of our three nurseries and nursery schools are complete and functioning. Regarding the number of children: We are fully booked on Crouch Hill and there are 2 places in Tufnell Park (north London). Les Petites Etoiles West Hampstead opens its doors on September 6 after 3 months of work. School is awesome! There is a 2-day place in the kids class and some places in the “kids” class. The solid reputation of Les Petites Etoiles allows us to go back to school by 2021, which promises to be especially good.
