Nursery Information

Our purpose-built Bluewater nursery is a two-minute walk from Bluewater’s West Village and a short drive from Greenhithe Station. The nursery is open all year round from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Christmas week and bank holidays), and provides childcare and education for babies and young children from the age of three months to five years.

Our fees include a nursery backpack and all meals and extracurricular activities.

We understand that choosing a nursery for your child is one of the most challenging decisions you will have to make. Therefore, it is essential that you visit different nurseries in the area to find the one that’s right for you. If you would like to arrange a visit or a trial session, please contact us by telephone or e-mail, or pop into the nursery. You are welcome at any time.

Our people at Bluewater Nursery

We handpick all of our employees for their ability to provide warm and consistent care. In addition, our teams understand the physical, emotional and intellectual needs of the children.

All our staff meet stringent requirements set by Ofsted. Before starting work, references request references from the most recent former employers. We also conduct Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks. These checks are updated regularly, regardless of the employees’ length of service.

The vast majority of our staff have qualifications in Child Care and Learning and Development. Many of whom are qualified to degree level. Those who aren’t are actively encouraged to pursue formal qualifications.

All our teams receive training in:

  • Safeguarding Children
  • Paediatric First Aid
  • Food Hygiene
  • Fire Safety
  • Moving and Handling

We assess all training needs on an individual basis and provide ongoing support to our teams.

Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of children is our top priority.

We also work hard to ensure your child has an enjoyable learning journey, learning, developing and have fun!

    Staff carefully organise enabling environments for high quality play. Sometimes, they make time and space available for the children to invent their own play. Sometimes, they join in to sensitively support and extend the children’s learning.

    We encourage the children to play in groups of two or more, extending and elaborating play and creative ideas. We introduce children to the works of artists from different time periods and cultures.

    We encourage children to make comparisons between objects relating to size, length, weight and capacity. Children learn to experiment and appropriately select shapes and objects for building, combining them to make new shapes, such as an arch or a triangular prism.

    We introduce children to computers and basic Maths and English software in pre-school, so that by the time they go to school, they are familiar with using a mouse and keyboard.

    Regular sharing of books and talking with children about their ideas and responses (dialogic reading) helps them to develop an enjoyment and understanding of books from an early stage.

    Babies, toddlers and young children thrive when they are loved and well cared for. Children are powerful learners and every child can make amazing progress in their learning, with the right help.
