Ford Road Children's Centre Nursery

A message from the manager

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, which even incorporates a fire pit in the preschool garden. 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. My most treasured memory at Ford Road is perhaps the first campfire we did when children, staff and parents sat around the fire singing songs, drinking hot chocolate and eating marshmallows. Looking at the children's faces was a magical experience as they watched in awe and wonder as the fire grew. I'm very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

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