A message from the manager

My name is Gemma, and I am the manager of Marks Gate Children’s Centre nursery. We are located within the children’s centre, and next to the community centre, library and Marks Gate Infant and Primary schools. We have very close links to the professionals and services within these settings to allow our families to access the great support and services they provide. Our nursery is a lovely, calm and cosy environment, with a home away from home feel. We also have 3 beautiful gardens for the children to continue their learning and development in the outdoor space. I’m very proud of the staff team here who create great bonds with the children and families who start their early years journeys with us. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

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

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