Enquire now with Streatham Common

Our nursery environment and facilities enable your child to explore, develop and learn. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool spaces are specially designed and equipped especially with them in mind. You’ll see many familiar homely items such as bookcases, tables, chairs, and sofas just much smaller than you are used to!

We consider the spaces around your child to be like their third teacher, joining you as parents and us as educators in guiding them through their learning. You’ll notice how we use our garden area and outdoor spaces as an outdoor classroom as well, full of features to support their play and learning, allowing children to expend their energy and take advantage of all of the benefits of being outside. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool rooms are perfect for the ages of children that spend their time in them. Due to our location, we are also able to make full use of Streatham Common as it just a short walk away, with regular visits almost every week.

We keep many aspects of our nursery environments consistent as we know your child will benefit greatly from this, with core resources, enriching toys, games and creative materials, that are always at hand for your child to play with. However, it is not unusual for parts of our nurseries to become unique adventure places where your child’s imagination can run free!

We also believe in being innovative and constantly look to evolve our approach to learning. Active and adventurous learning is a must with the energy and excitement that nursery children have. We see learning and development everywhere and in everything we do. For example, we use Hokki chairs and seating for our children. They’re fantastic in helping maintain focus and engagement during seated activities, whilst also developing muscle strength and posture and allowing children to keep moving even when they’re sitting still! 

If you would like to come in for a visit, please get in touch with our nursery manager or call our nursery office on 02080500021.

Discoverers Environment

Our mobile and non-mobile babies benefit from a large, bright, open plan day room, well equipped with the latest in sensory equipment to test their senses and encourage development.

As babies spend a lot of time sleeping at this early age, we provide a dedicated sleep room. We constantly monitor the room temperature in the day nursery to ensure the babies are comfortable at all times.

There will never be more than three babies to any one member of staff, so you can be assured that your little one will get the essential attention they need at this stage in their life. Your child’s key person will take care of all your child’s personal needs whenever possible.

Explorers Environment

When your child moves up a stage, their day is structured around their changing interests. Our nursery equipment has been carefully selected, allowing your child to discover at their individual level of understanding.

The room focuses on the primary area’s of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework and encourages learning through play. We have created various dedicated areas offering different activities.

The ‘Story Corner’ where children can sit in a group and listen to stories, sand and water play area, a construction area to develop coordination and a messy play area for getting mucky.

Toddlers also benefit from a staffing ratio of one member of staff looking after no more than three children and supervised access to our fantastic garden.

As this is the time when the majority of children start ‘toilet training’, this area is equipped with brightly decorated children’s toilets, encouraging independence.

Inventors Environment

Preschool children also follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’. We support them and prepare them for their eventual move from day nursery to school. This is a more settled routine, with children working in small groups.

Through our observations of children learning through play, we are able to introduce adult led activities that follow the interest of individual children, linking them to the seven areas of learning:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

The children have open access to the garden every day (free flow) from their room and complete a lot of their daily activities outside through choice. The garden also reflect the areas of learning and allows problem solving on a grander scale.

Outdoor Environment and Trips

Our children have open access to the garden and outdoor spaces every day. This allows them to complete a lot of their daily activities outside through choice. The garden also reflects the areas of learning and allows problem solving on a grander scale. Alongside our own garden space, we are also right next door to Streatham Common and we make the most of this beautiful space inside London. With wide open spaces, playgrounds, woodlands and beautiful Rookery Garden, we ensure our children get the enjoy the fresh air and outdoor spaces that they have on their doorstep.

All our children get the opportunity to go on local educational trips. Whether it be to the local shops or places of interest, we always risk assess our outings and ensure that ratios are adhered to.

Additionally, we invite the local businesses and the emergency services to come in and talk to the children about safety awareness and their community.
