An outstanding nursery in Eltham dedicated to your child

Welcome to our Ofsted Outstanding nursery in Eltham, where our exceptional team delivers the best learning and care for little ones aged 3 months to 5 years.

Excellent Rooms and Resources

In our calm baby room, practitioners follow your baby's routine from home as closely as possible. Babies have a separate cot room and freeflow access to their own garden.

Older babies have a beautiful, spacious room where they benefit from freeflow access to the messy play and soft play areas as well as their own dedicated garden.

2-3-year-olds are encouraged to follow their own interests, and activities are based around them, helping them meet their individual milestones.

Preschoolers will feel excited and confident to start school in their room, where they are taught the essential skills they need to prepare them for their next step.

Our 2-3 and preschool classrooms have freeflow access to a large, shared garden.

Along with our enhanced and enriched learning programmes Eltham Green Day Nursery is excited to partner with Superstar Sports. Superstar sports are the leading UK supplier of nursery sports coaching. They deliver fun and engaging sports sessions for children that follow the early years guidelines are Ofsted approved.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life 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 wellbeing, development, and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Beautiful Garden Areas for All Ages

Your child will enjoy plenty of fresh air in our large garden, which is carefully designed to accommodate the different age groups separately.

Our all-weather garden has lots of exciting areas to discover, including a mud kitchen and a creative area where your child can plant flowers and tasty vegetables.
