Dragonfly Day Nursery provides high quality childcare for babies and young children from the age of 3 months to 5 years, in first class facilities within a fully designed building environment with modern resources and equipment.

Our nursery provides part time and full time care, aiming to be as flexible as reasonably possible for working and busy parents.

We operate between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. for 50 weeks of the year, excluding bank holidays. The nursery is closed for two weeks during the Christmas and New Year period.

Our nursery is conveniently located and within walking distance of the community it aims to serve and is accessible via an excellent network of public transport facilities including buses, underground and main line stations at Stratford and Maryland. Off street parking is also available for dropping off and collection.

At our nursery, you will find a warm, welcoming and stimulating environment, where children feel at home and are able to play, explore, discover and learn.

We offer an all inclusive service including meals, snacks and milk. All meals are freshly prepared on the premises. We cater for any special dietary requirements and babies have a personalised menu.

The large secure garden offers an extensive range of opportunities for outdoor play including a multi function mountain resort, popular garden play equipment as well as an allotment area enabling the children to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Considerable time and care has been expended to develop a range of policies to ensure the children in our care remain safe and secure, are treated as individuals, and are led by good example and that they learn through creative interaction and play.

We value our staff team and regard them as our most important asset. We actively encourage them to develop their ideas and commitment to childcare, through ongoing mentoring and training.

Together with our staff team, and feedback from our parents, we aim to constantly improve standards in our nursery.

We accept employer childcare vouchers and are happy to talk through the options relating to childcare funding with you.

OUR STAFF                                                 

Dragonfly Day Nursery believes that recruiting staff with the right skills and abilities is essential to meeting our goals and aspirations. We have therefore established a robust induction programme to ensure that on commencement of their employment our staff teams have the necessary skills and knowledge to start their career with us.

Our staff are selected for their ability to provide warm and consistent care, and for their understanding of the developing physical, emotional and intellectual needs of the children. Members of staff are qualified to a minimum of National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) level 3 for nursery nurses/room leaders, and NVQ level 2 for nursery nurses.

We are committed to continuing professional development by actively encouraging our staff to attend external training courses so that they benefit from industry expertise outside of the nursery. Staff have completed training in first aid, health and safety, food hygiene, behaviour management, safe guarding, SEN, every child is a talker, equal opportunities and diversity. Training needs are individually assessed and further training is provided as required.

Whilst the top priority of our staff team is to ensure the health and safety of the children at all times, we also aim to make the time that your child spends with us an enjoyable 'learning journey', which enables him or her to learn, develop and have fun!
