A message from the manager

Hello, my name is Pauline and I have been the Manager of Ford Road since 2009. We really stand out from other nurseries because of our large outside play areas for all age groups, our preschool garden even has a fire pit. We provide the children with rich activities where they can gain the confidence to explore and learn. Science activities in particular are very popular with our children. My most treasured memory at Ford Road is perhaps the first campfire we did when children, staff and parents sat around the fire singing songs, drinking hot chocolate and eating marshmallows. Looking at the children's faces was a magical experience as they watched in awe and wonder as the fire grew. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

Please note Ford Road Nursery is offering the 30 Hours from 1 September, 2017. This is open to working parents of 3 & 4 year olds. Please contact Pauline, your Nursery Manager for details.


We are located in Dagenham, providing care and education for children from birth to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
