Hatching Dragons




Hatching Dragons is the UK's first fully immersive bilingual Mandarin-English day nursery provision. Located just north of the Barbican, we focus on the development of communication, language and cultural knowledge through creative activities that draw on the rich cultural legacies of both China and the West. We regularly host free shadow puppetry playgroups, cultural events and parenting classes (e.g. paediatric first aid, infant nutrition etc) for families in the area to introduce them to Chinese culture and things that can help with the development of their child

  • Elliot Hammer on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 My boy has been here since September 2015 and we are very happy with the nursery. Staff are lovely and always very helpful. His Mandarin is improving beautifully. If we have another kid we will surely send him/ her back to HD.
  • Xinhua Wu on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Heartily thanks for your generous 2nd birthday goodies fun gift and the lovely nursery's hospitality and effort! As a Chinese parent, I appreciate your profound knowledge of Chinese culture which is instilled in your daily early years education. Highly recommend the properly run bilingual Mandarin-English nursery!
