East India Dock Preschool

See your little one flourish at our nursery in East India Dock

Your little one will love spending their days in our warm and welcoming preschool in East India Dock. Uniquely set in a beautiful newly refurbished setting in a secure residential area, and rated as 'Good' by Ofsted, we welcome children from 2 to 5 years old.

Giving Your Child the Best Start

Each of our specially designed rooms features age-appropriate facilities, resources, and toys to help your little one as they grow. Your child will be encouraged to follow their own interests at their own pace throughout their journey with us, as they make new discoveries and learn essential key skills along the way.

To prepare your child for starting school, our preschoolers have a dedicated classroom where they are supported by a qualified preschool teacher.

Budding chefs will love getting stuck into cooking and experimenting in our children's kitchen, where we teach children all about healthy food choices and get a little messy doing some hands-on cooking!>

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.

Exploring the Garden and Local Area

Your child will be able to enjoy lots of outdoor time in our beautiful private garden, which is full of exciting activities to explore. We also have a lovely allotment, where little green fingers can get stuck in, growing vegetables and learning how food is made.

Our nursery in East India Dock takes full advantage of the local area, with excursions out to enjoy local parks and riverside walks.

All-Inclusive Care

To help with those hectic mornings, our East India Dock Preschool is all-inclusive. All hot meals, snacks, wipes, nappy cream, and sun cream are included.>

Great Location for Commuting Parents

Ideal for commuting parents, we have a great location under a minute away from East India DLR and a 20-minute walk to Canary Wharf. Canning Town and North Greenwich tube station are also close by.

Your Personal Tour

Our dedicated staff can't wait to welcome you and your little one to our East India Dock Preschool. For more information, or to see the preschool yourself, please get in touch and we'll be happy to arrange a personal tour.
