A message from the manager

My name is Leonie and I’m very proud to be the new Manager at Marks Gate Community Nursery, Chadwell Heath. We are located next to the Children’s Centre, Marks Gate Infant School, Junior School, Community Complex and Library. We have very close links with the Children’s Centre and our local schools, where we work closely together in order for our parents and children to gain access to the best specialist support and services available. Our nursery is a beautiful space for children to learn and explore and each of our rooms have their own outdoor area. The children love to spend time outdoors in the garden and enjoy growing their own vegetables and learning about the outdoors and nature. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

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.
