About our Barking nursery

Our Barking nursery and pre-school is located in a large park on the outskirts of Barking town centre. The nursery is located within walking distance of Barking train station which has direct links into London.

Our nursery offers a range of engaging and inclusive learning opportunities to ensure that your child’s day is fun, educational, and exciting.

The nursery is divided into three age-groups. Little Owls are based on the ground floor with two rooms, one for our babies from 3 months and one for our toddlers up to the age of 3 years. Our pre-school, Great Eagles, is based upstairs for children from 3 years up to school age.

Our baby room is cosy and quiet space dedicated to our babies, from 3 months to 2 years. This room has been designed to meet the needs of our babies with sensory areas within the rooms to help with child development.

Our toddler room is specifically designed for inquisitive toddlers from 2-3 years aiming to spark their curiosity and develop their confidence.  The opportunities within this room are tailored to assist our toddlers to learn at their own pace and become ready for the next step in their journey. 

Our Great Eagles pre-school caters for the needs of children from 3 years until they are ready to start school. Within the pre-school we like to use a curiosity method to support children with their education, social skills, and preparation for school. In utilising this method, we aim to minimise the use of plastic and focus on natural resources and real-life objects, as we believe that children learn best from real experiences.

The outside area offers a safe and stimulating environment for the children to play and learn while surrounded by nature. In addition to this we are also located within a large park. This gives us plenty of opportunities to visit the play area, go on a nature trail or feed the ducks.
