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.
Ford Road Children's Centre Nursery is located in Dagenham and provides care and education for babies and children up to the age of five years.
The caring and qualified staff use creativity and play to help children develop a lifelong love of learning and help them to feel happy and settled from their first day at the nursery. The staff recognise that nursery can be a big step for children and their families so they are there to provide support throughout the journey.
Children can eat freshly prepared, healthy meals at the nursery every day. They can spend time in the fresh air and explore the outdoors either in the nursery garden or at the local park.
The children love baking day with our chef who brings the cooking out of the kitchen into the classroom.
At Ford Road we have a large garden where the children have their own allotment and grow their own vegetables from seeds.
"All of the staff were most welcoming. My son's transition period was a challenge, but the staff were very supportive and encouraging."
"The staff were the absolute best - even when you had new starters they were just as good, or better. I felt my child was always safe and looked after, and recommend the nursery to friends all the time."
"Friendly staff who are great with the children. My son has grown so much since starting nursery."
"The teachers are fascinating and my child has learnt a whole lot. The kitchen service is excellent, environment is clean and the buggy area is a plus ."
