Our Wandsworth Nursery
Chapel House Day Nursery in Wandsworth, is located on Chapel Road, West Norwood – a few minutes’ walk from West Norwood Railway Station. Once on Chapel Road, you can’t miss us – we occupy the huge white Chapel at the end of the road at the top of Norwood High Street, near St Luke’s primary School. We’re easy to reach by car, and have our own ‘on site’ parking.
The nursery occupies a beautiful converted chapel with large rooms and high ceilings, and many original features. The nature of the building, with its bright and airy rooms, gives our children lots of space to explore, play and learn. The nursery is warm, welcoming and has a homely feel which we love, and are very proud of. Our Wandsworth nursery has been totally refurbished and re-equipped, and is a beautiful space for our children to enjoy.
We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies (3 months to 12 months), our toddlers (12 months to 24 months), our 2 -3 year olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for, nurtured and encouraged to explore and investigate.
If you visit our day nursery in Wandsworth, you’ll see that it benefits from huge, beautiful grounds surrounding the building which include separate grassed and well equipped play areas for the younger and older children – enabling us to provide exceptional and exciting outdoor play opportunities and learning experiences for children of all ages. Our children love the ‘performing stage’ in our garden, and they gain confidence on our climbing equipment. We have digging and planting areas in our ‘Veggie Patch’ which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. And we have ‘sand play’ areas and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.
Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Wandsworth with such extensive outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have worked hard to create the best indoor facilities as well. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with equipment such as sensory resources, treasure baskets, and a toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote child development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to give children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their areas of interest, and IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.
We are committed to remaining the best day nursery in Wandsworth, and to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.
We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:
• Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
• Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
• Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
• Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
• Children and adults having fun!
We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Chapel House Day Nursery in Wandsworth.
