Nursery and Pre-school Information
Our Clarence Avenue, Ilford nursery and pre-school is a purpose-built setting with the latest children’s furniture, equipment and resources, a couple of minutes’ walk from Gants Hill tube station (on the central line). The Ilford 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 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, you should visit different nurseries in the area to find the one that’s right for you. If you want to arrange a visit or a trial session, don’t hesitate to contact us by telephone or e-mail or pop into the nursery. You are welcome at any time.
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!
