A message from the manager

I'm Taneshia and I'm passionate and committed to children achieving the best possible outcomes. My years of experience and continuous professional development ensure that my practice is current. I have a high level of emotional intelligence which enables me to respect my team for who they are, and for me to help them develop to their full potential. I am fun, caring and will do everything I can to ensure your children have the best possible start in life. On my first visit to the nursery there was a wonderful moment when my past caught up with me, I met one of the current parents who I recognised from the very first nursery I worked at which was over 10 years ago! I remembered her son and she remembered me, it was a really special moment. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

Please note Burgess Park Nursery isn’t offering the 30 Hours of funded childcare. This is because we want to provide enough of the 15 hours of funded childcare to our local families who benefit from having this option.

We're located in Peckham, providing care and education for children aged from 2 to 5 years. We're open 9am to 12pm and 1 to 4pm (term-time only).
