Welcome to Chadwell St Mary Nursery

At our three times OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ rated day nursery and pre-school your child will receive outstanding care and education provisions in their age-appropriate learning group.

Let us show you around our Nurseries

Baby Nest

The Baby Nest caters for children from birth to 18 months old. The room has several cosy play areas full of natural resources to support babies’ learning and engage their natural curiosity. There are soft and wooden a construction blocks, a cosy book nook and an open floor space for mark making, messy play and physical development.

A sensory corner with a colour bubble tube and fibre optics support the babies sensory awareness.

Turtle Room

Toddlers transition into this room once they are confident walkers. Children have access to a wide variety of resources to support their prime areas of learning. Children develop feeding and toileting skills as nurturing practitioners successfully support their natural independence. Books, crayons and building blocks provide endless hours of fun.

Up and Over: An indoor physical play area including stairs, a slide and platform for the children to explore their physical abilities within a safe environment.

Starfish Room

Children can independently access a home corner where they enjoy pretend play with their friends as well as mastering new skills.

A continuous provision of sand, water and messy play supports their natural growing curiosity and provides learning experiences and maintains children’s interest.

Dolphins Room

This room is designed to prepare children for their transition to ‘big’ school and so a qualified Early Years teacher implements the educational curriculum for the children.

Children’s independence is encouraged as they have the freedom to select a range of educational resources. The role play area is designed to support the children’s imaginative and expressive play, with and crafts area close by to continue their creativity. Children relax in the quiet book nook and enjoy stories with friends or practitioners.

Children take part in indoor and outdoor P.E. lessons from a qualified gymnastics coach in the last term before they leave for school.
