For residents with children, especially those who are toddlers or entering the pre-school years, finding the right nursery may be a tough decision because you want your child to be safe and have the best education possible. Some of the more notable nurseries could be far out in a different area of Barcelona rather than just next door. For those living in the Gracia area, these are some of the best nursery schools where you can leave your children safely knowing they will be looked after and receive a good education at the same time.

The Playhouse is a progressive international nursery founded by British expat and mother of three, Sarah Yandell. Playhouse also serves as a community of parents and children with a focus on language and culture. Their goal is to connect English, Catalan, and Spanish culture in a child-centered educational environment. They work with a flexible process that involves children adapting to a teaching system with no more than four children in the classroom at a time while promoting good health and environmental sustainability by serving balanced and organic foods. They believe in “acceptance, love, approval and security” for young children in their development throughout pre-school.
