Nursery Logo

Daffodils on Norbury Crescent opened its doors nearly two decades ago, in 1995. Since then the nursery building has been through several alterations in order to make it fully equipped with everything required to cater for your child.

There is a hard standing outside area which enables children to use the outdoor area throughout the year. Recently a sheltered area was introduced which adds to the possibility of use on rainy days.

The nursery is located very close to the 50 bus stop which provides links to London and Croydon as well as being a short walk away from Norbury train station.

"Parents gave very positive feedback during the inspection about the service provided. They are very satisfied with the care their children receive and information about children's achievements, well-being and development" Ofsted Report 2010

Our nurseries are a high quality provision. Our curriculum is based on the individual needs of the child.

All children will be allocated a key worker at the start of their time at Daffodils. All children will follow the foundation stage.

  • Personal Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication & Language
  • Understanding the World
  • Physical Development
  • Expressive Art & Design
  • Literacy
Regular observations on each individual child will be taken and recorded in an assessment folder. This will assist the staff team in planning to include the needs of individual children and identify areas that need encouragement.

Parents Testimonial - "Dropping my boys to Daffodils was like home! The loving atmosphere of the teachers gave me confidence in knowing my boys were getting the best care"

We provide a safe, clean and healthy learning environment. Our resourcesoffer an opportunity for children to have a challenging playing environment at different development levels.

Your child, with the aid of our fully trained staff team, will be able to experience and explore all the activities and develop learning skills and love to learn.

All children are given an opportunity to take part in every activity. Some children do not like certain activities. We will use gentle persuasion.

If at any stage we are concerned about your child, we will talk to you and see how we can encourage the child more. All nursery activities, toys, games and equipment are designed to help your child learn, understand and develop in all areas of the curriculum through play.

Children’s creativity will be extended by the nursery’s support for their curiosity, exploration and play. 

They will be provided with opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings, for example, through a variety of art, music, movement, dance, imaginative and role-play activities, mathematics, and design and technology.

The physical development of babies and young children will be encouraged through the nursery with opportunities for them to be active and interactive and to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement.

"Children are confident and play well on their own and with each other. Children show good levels of independence and older children are able put on their own coats, hat, scarves when going to play outdoors and manage their own personal hygiene" Ofsted Report 2010

Children will be supported in developing the knowledge, skills and understanding that helps them to make sense of the world. 

Their learning will be supported through opportunities for them to use a range of tools safely, encounter creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments and in real-life situations undertake practical experiments and work with a range of materials.

The nursery will support in developing their understanding of mathematics in a broad range of contexts in which they can explore, enjoy, learn, practise and talk about their developing understanding.  They will be provided with opportunities to practise and extend their skills in these areas and to gain confidence and competence in their use.

We will provide experiences and support which will help them to develop a positive sense of themselves and of others, respect for others, social skills and a positive disposition to learn.

We will ensure support for children’s emotional well-being to help them to know themselves and what they can do. A range of activities will be provided which will encourage children to work independently or as part of a group

Children’s learning and competence in communication, speaking and listening, being read to and beginning to read and write will be supported and encouraged to use their skills in a range of situations and for a range of purposes, and will be supported in developing the confidence and disposition to do so.

"Children are becoming aware of diversity as they celebrate festivals throughout the year and recently benefited from a parent coming into the nursery to share their culture.

Children have access to a broad range of resources, play opportunities and activities, which reflect diversity and acknowledge cultural differences" Ofsted Report 2010
