Broadgate Nursery and Preschool
Broadgate Nursery and Preschool is Deutsche Bank’s workplace nursery and provides permanent Deutsche Bank employees with high quality early care and education for babies and children aged from 3 months to 8 years.
The nursery team is staffed by qualified and experienced practitioners, including a qualified Early Years Teacher, who support children’s development in partnership with parents and ensure the effective delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage requirements.
The nursery is conveniently located on Curtain Road, a short walk from London Liverpool Street Station and in close proximity to Deutsche Bank’s Appold Street and Winchester House offices. The nursery provides bright and spacious rooms, stimulating and well-resourced environments, and a garden for exploring and extending the curriculum outdoors. The nursery is open from 0730 to 1830 Monday to Friday, 52 weeks per year excluding Bank Holidays, and provides both full and part-time care.
Permanent nursery places are provided for children aged 3 months to 5 years on a full and part time basis (full day, half day and part week). As the nursery is a workplace nursery, Deutsche Bank employees benefit from significant Tax and NIC savings via its workplace nursery exempt Salary Sacrifice scheme, materially reducing the cost of care for Deutsche Bank families.
Our highly qualified staff follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and partner with parents to support their children’s development. The nursery also offers a variety of extra-curricular activities include Yoga, Dance and Drama, Piano Lessons and French Lessons.
Children enjoy a ‘home from home’ environment and a wide range of activities designed to promote their self-esteem, confidence, learning and development. Our pre-school children focus on preparing for their first steps in education, with an introduction to subjects that they will soon be encountering at “big school”. We offer our unique Ready for School programme which helps build the foundations for children to develop the skills they need for this transition. We also offer our Unique educational programmes including Growing Readers, Growing Writers, Growing Mathematicians, Growing Scientists and Growing Artists, together with our very own fitness programme, Active Athletes. Through these we aim to give pre-school children a head start in learning, equipping them with the academic self-confidence required for success at school.
Our fees cover all healthy and nutritious meals, freshly prepared by our nursery chef. Our open door policy means Deutsche Bank parents are welcome to drop in for a visit at any point throughout the day.
In addition to regular care, the nursery also provides free Back-Up Childcare to support Deutsche Bank parents when their regular arrangements are unavailable or breakdown. Examples of scenarios are if your childminder or nanny is ill or on holiday; you need to work on a day when you would not ordinarily do so; you are transitioning back to work from maternity, paternity or adoption leave; school is closed for INSET training or school holidays; or if you are travelling / relocating to work at Deutsche Bank. Employees receive up to 20 days per child per calendar year, for children aged from 3 months up to 8 years.
Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to capacity being available in the nursery. Places can be reserved up to 1 month in advance or on the day of care being required. We recommend registering for the programme and visiting the nursery in advance of care being required.
Family engagement activities:
The nursery regularly engages with our families and we run many family activities and events including our ‘Breakfast on the Go’ for parents, regular coffee mornings, story time sessions, Stay and Play sessions, Lunch and Learns as well as our active Parent Forum.
We also run our Family Essentials Webinars on parenting and work/life topics and you can view these and more on our Family Resources page.
