We have 4 nurseries located between West Dulwich, Tulse Hill, Herne Hill, Dulwich Village, East Dulwich and Upper Sydenham. Our Turney Road Day Nursery in Dulwich is located on the corner of Turney Road and Croxted Road – a short walk from both West Dulwich and Herne Hill Railway Stations. Our Rosendale Road Day Nursery in West Dulwich is located inside All Saints Church – a 5 minute walk from West Dulwich and Tulse Hill Railway Stations. Our Lancaster Avenue Day Nursery in West Dulwich is located a 5 minute walk from Tulse Hill and West Dulwich Railway Stations, and our nursery at Dulwich Sports Ground is located a little closer to Dulwich Village and North Dulwich Railway Station.
All of our nurseries have been refurbished and equipped to a very high standard, and offer wonderful large rooms that give a light airy feeling and provide lots of space in which children can play and learn. All have a homely welcoming feel, and provide us with a large space for exciting outdoor play and exploration. Large windows and large rooms induce a sense of awe and calm in staff, children and visitors alike.
We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies and toddlers (3 months to 24 months), and our older children (2 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for, nurtured and encouraged to explore and investigate.
If you visit one of our day nurseries in Dulwich, you’ll see that we enjoy creating extensive gardens and outdoor play space, with separate areas for our younger and older children. We have digging and planting areas in our ‘Veggie Patches’ which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. And we have ‘sand play’ areas and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.
Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Dulwich with such well-equipped outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our baby rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest, including IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.
We are committed to remaining the best day nurseries in Dulwich, and to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.
We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:
• Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
• Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
• Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
• Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
• Children and adults having fun!
We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Nelly’s Nurseries in Dulwich.
