A grand and inspiring nursery in West Dulwich

Our families love West Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool which is set in a grand and beautiful church building and features a fantastic garden. We have our own sports coach, making this an ideal nursery for developing physical strength, coordination, balance and teamwork.

Grow and Learn

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 governments 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.

Preparing for School

  • Your child will start learning all the skills they need for school through our range of Growing Enhancements, and our Ready For School Programme. Exciting and educational activities help them to become Growing Readers, Writers, Mathematicians, Active Athletes, Creative Cooks and more.
  • They'll love our Boogie Mites with exciting opportunities to learn about the world through music and song.
  • Freshly prepared meals are provided along with support to encourage your little one to serve themselves and use a knife and fork.

Follow your little one's progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and receive daily updates including photos and videos of them enjoying their favourite activities.

Ease and Convenience

  • Good links to public transport, with Gipsy Hill Station is just 5 minutes walk.
  • Free off-street parking and a designated buggy park allow for convenient drop-offs and pick-ups.
  • We provide necessities such as nappies, wipes, creams and formula so that there's less for you to pack on those busy mornings!

Your Personal Tour

We look forward to meeting you and your little explorer so that you can enjoy a personal tour of our facilities and ask any questions you may have.
