Lavender Hill Day Nursery in Clapham, is conveniently located next door to the main entrance of the Asda supermarket on Lavender Hill, giving our parents the convenience of a large free car park right outside our door. We’re just a few hundred yards up the hill from Clapham Junction Railway Station, making us extremely convenient for anyone commuting by train, and attracting a wide cross section of parents from across South London.
Our Clapham nursery has been ‘purpose built’ and was completely refurbished to a very high standard in 2015. Our wonderful large rooms are bright and airy, giving our children lots of space to explore, play and learn. The nursery is warm and welcoming and has a homely feel which we love, and are very proud of, in which we nurture and care for children and their families.
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 and encouraged to explore and investigate. We operate the rooms for older children with direct access for the children to our outdoor play areas – which allows them to free-flow indoors and out, depending on their preference.
If you visit our day nursery in Clapham, you’ll see that it benefits from its own outdoor play area for exciting outdoor play and exploration, and we are also next door to a large grassed play park - Lavender Gardens Playground - which we frequently use for more adventurous play. Each age group has its own designated garden and outdoor play equipment, and 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 Clapham with such extensive outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual 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 Clapham, 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 Lavender Hill Day Nursery in Clapham.
