Nursery Information

Our purpose-built East Sheen nursery is located on Upper Richmond Road West, in the heart of the town centre. 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 three months to five years old.

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 important 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 East Sheen Nursery and Preschool

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!

    It’s vital for children to spend time outdoors every day, to get lots of fresh air, run around, climb, jump, play and develop a lifelong love of exercise. Our gardens are equipped with fun and interesting resources for the children to enjoy.

    Children gain a sense of belonging very quickly after joining nursery. The proudly bring their Kids Inc backpacks in every day, confidently hanging them on their pegs before joining their friends for another day of learning, adventure and fun.

    Language development is central to self-regulation and executive function. Children use language to guide their actions and plans. Pretend play gives many opportunities for children to focus their thinking, enabling them to develop their persistence and thought processes.

    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 arrange resources to encourage the children to play with increasing confidence on their own and with others. They are able to do this knowing that their key person is there to support them.

    We encourage the children to select and use activities and resources, with help when needed. This enables them to achieve a goal they have chosen or one which is suggested to them.
