A message from the manager

My name is Lynne and I have been at Bird in Bush since 2001, taking over as Manager in 2013. We offer a bright and spacious environment which develops children’s confidence and social skills. We have a passionate team who give each child the personalised attention they need, and encourage the children to take an active role in planning activities. We work in partnership with parents and are a much loved part of the community – the building is from the 60s and many of our parents came here themselves! My favourite moments are seeing the children transition to school feeling confident and eager to learn! We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

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

We're located in Peckham, providing care for children from 3 months to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
