Monmar Nursery

Monmar Nursery, proudly offering each individual child a happy, exciting, safe, secure learning environment in which to develop

Monmar Nursery is a large pre-school nursery for children aged 3 months – 5 years. We are based in Norwood, South East London and we operate within a large, two storey, detached building which is light and spacious. We provide a modern, home from home feel with soft carpets throughout and soft furnishing, quiet spaces and grow your own garden areas. We also have a fully operational kitchen in which our chef prepares delicious food on site, cooked from scratch using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

We are in a residential area and just a 5 minute walk from Norwood Junction train station which has fast trains into Croydon or Central London. We have a wonderful large garden which includes raised beds which children get involved in learning more about how food grows as well as take part in planting and picking food! Our large out door space lends itself to a multitude of activities that your child can partake in.
Our building also has CCTV throughout providing additional peace of mind to parents.

Here at Monmar Nursery we use an online learning journal which is interactive, enabling parents to see how their child is getting on for the day and enjoy viewing and sharing photos of their child having fun whilst learning. Observations are sent directly to parents via the online learning journal and parents can also send comments directly to their child’s key worker.

All of our food is made on site by our qualified and experienced Chef. We have a 5* hygiene rating. All of our staff are enthusiastic and child centred. All staff are either qualified to a Level 3 in Childcare or are being supported by a level 3 qualified member of staff and are working towards gaining their qualifications. Throughout our nursery we have large, brightly coloured, changing displays which proudly present our children’s achievements.
