Twickenham Park Nursery

Welcome to Twickenham Park Nursery School!

Our nursery is located very close to Richmond Bridge, in East Twickenham. Our ethos is to strive to make every day a unique experience for the children in our care. We always put the child first in everything we do, supporting them to take the lead in how they want to learn and play. We help with children’s general well-being, encourage resilience, social skills and good manners and kind choices to all. We support learning through schemes looking at interests and patterns in play to develop confidence and skills.

We are constantly evolving, assessing and evaluating our practice by looking at ‘Intent’, ‘Implementation’ and ‘Impact’. We give children the best possible start in their early education and by using the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage we help the children experience the awe and wonder of the world in which they live, we make sure our children are ‘school ready’ when they leave, and we prepare them for their future success by sharing essential knowledge through cultural capital and by building activities around the children’s interests. We are a community nursery and a home from home for all that attend and are often described by parents as ‘an extension of their family’.

We encourage British values and welcome and celebrate cultures from around the world. We explore and investigate with a hands-on approach, understanding that experience and practice are key to developing a secure understanding. We pride ourselves in our provision of exciting activities such as Yoga, Karate, Ballet, Music and trips out, including swimming, visits to a forest park, the theatre and local care homes.

Every practitioner here is valued and their opinions and well-being are always considered. We take care of our staff and, as a result, most stay for five to ten years.

Please feel free to contact me with your questions or better still, organise a visit to our wonderful nursery. I look forward to meeting you and your child.
