Welcome to New Vision Day Nursery in Bermondsey. We can cater for children from 3 months to 5 years all year round. Our aim is to help them mix socially and develop through a wide range of experiences and activities in a happy and safe environment.

We adopt a "home from home" like experience, which is what we find helps each child settle into nursery quickly. We operate a key person system, where your child will have their own key person who is responsible for your child's developmental stages.

Amongst our staff is a wealth of experience within childcare and all staff are either qualified or working towards their qualifications. We have a large open plan space in which we have organised curriculum areas for the children to explore with toys and furniture that assist in the children's development.

Children are grouped accordingly to their individual needs and stage of development and not just by age.

"Children have formed close bonds with staff and with each other. Staff welcome parents and children warmly, and the effective key-person system supports children's overall development".Ofsted Report 2016

Welcome to Bermondsey

Baby Room

Welcome to the Baby Room. We cater for children from 3 months up to 2 years within this department, and have carefully designed safe and suitable areas for the very young children up to when they become mobile.

Because every child is unique we find that some children may need next to no time to settle into nursery life where as others may require a lengthy period of time. We recognise this and ensure that your child is given the time and attention needed.

"Children enjoy their time at the setting and make good progress in their learning. They confidently explore the good variety of resources". Ofsted Report 2016

As the children become more mobile they have their very own creative play and physical play area to explore. They also have their very own quiet corner to look at books and plenty of resources and equipment to stimulate their curiosity.

" Babies learn to move around the setting and children explore physical play equipment, while learning many new skills". Ofsted Report 2016


We have a large open plan space for the 2-5's unit, in which we have organised curriculum areas for the children to access all areas and equipment independently. We have free flow access to the resources and the outdoor area which encourages, good social integration and the opportunity to promote independence and development.

The team works together to plan activities that are educational and stimulating for the children. Many activities are planned around the children’s own interests. Focused activities can take place in small groups or on a 1 to 1 basis where necessary.

"Staff use a variety of methods to support all children's communication development, including children who are learning to speak English as an additional language. For example, they use symbols and pictures to extend children's developing vocabulary". Ofsted Report 2016

Structured timetables and planned activities organises the day to day running of the unit, and enables us to monitor their progress, and areas to improve. Each child has their very own learning journal, which is what we use to record and monitor their development. The staff are able to identify any areas that need improvement and anything of concern.

2-5's Classroom Area

Looking for mini beasts

"Children enjoy their learning in this positive and welcoming nursery. They celebrate their own learning with staff.

For example, older children review their own development records with staff to talk about their choices and skills". Ofsted Report 2016


We have a secure outdoor play area that we have designed for all age groups to enjoy. There are shaded areas to enjoy the lovely weather along with sand and water pits, climbing frames, cars and bikes, a play house and seating areas to explore.

We have created a nature garden for the children to enjoy a nature trail and looking for minibeasts. We try to spend as much time as we can outdoors, especially when the sun comes out. Any excuse for a picnic!

"Children enjoy a varied range of outside play activities. These give children choices in their play and the time spent outside helps to support their good health". Ofsted Report 2016
