East India Dock Preschool provides high-quality care and education for children aged 2-8 years, and is located in a secure residential area less than a minute's walk from East India DLR, with only a 20 minute walk to Canary Wharf.
Our experienced and friendly staff team welcome parents and children to our beautiful newly refurbished nursery, where our age-appropriate rooms have lots of natural light, lots of space and plenty of activities which allow children to explore and learn safely and at their own pace.
Bright Horizons Preschool nurseries focus on getting children Ready for School – we have a wide range of play and learning opportunities designed to encourage happy, confident children who are ready to embark on a lifelong journey of learning, including our Growing Programmes, a unique set of enhancements which focus on reading, writing, science, maths, physical activity and art. To complement our Growing programmes, children take part in Bilingual Beats sessions, learning Spanish and French – we also have multilingual staff to support this. East India Dock Preschool children also enjoy football, yoga and weekly music sessions with visits from our Music Man.
We’re also very keen on keeping active and exploring the outdoors – East India Dock Preschool children can often be found in our private garden setting, as well as enjoying our local park and river side excursions.

I am a mother of one beautiful four year old girl who currently attends our nursery. I have been in childcare for 8 years, I started as Bank Staff. I enjoyed this immensely so I trained to complete a diploma in childcare, this enabled me to become a full time Nursery Nurse, a Room Leader, Third in Charge, a Deputy Manager and finally to my current position of Nursery Manager. I have a real passion for what I do; I love to see children develop and grow . I also enjoy supporting my team, delivering outstanding experiences for children’s ‘early years’ life.
I have been in childcare for 10 years, it has always been my passion, I love to make a difference and to support in the education of our next generation. I began my career in childcare at college and then worked my way through university receiving my teaching diploma. I started working for Bright Horizons as a Room Leader and was later promoted to become Deputy Manager at East India Dock Preschool.
