Finding a place for children to grow in Chigwell

It is always hard going back to work and leaving children at a nursery. If you are new to Chigwell you might want to take a look at A Place to Grow. This Chigwell Day Nursery and Preschool provides care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

They are based at Roding Lane Chigwell and say they aim to offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery. As part of that, they provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. And in addition, they have extracurricular activities including Football, French, Dance, Music, Toddler Yoga and Computer Lessons.

The Chigwell nursery manager Malcolm Vickery says “I have been in childcare and with Bright Horizons for since 2007. I have a Level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education. My passion for childcare is that I want to make a difference in a child’s life. I enjoy watching children grow and blossom into little people and I love being part of that. No two days are ever the same and seeing and hearing the children’s laughter and voices is such an amazing feeling.”

They use what they call a Growing Writer’s approach which “supports the complex magical journey from making a mark to emergent writing, to confident writer, laying the foundational skills that enable each child to flourish with the confidence and capability to succeed at school.” For maths they use 1-2-3-4-5! Mathematics this they say “is embedded in everything that we do and experience in our day-to-day lives and our Growing Mathematicians programme has been created to help your child understand the purpose and importance of mathematics.”

If you are looking for a nursery place for your child going forward there are lots of opportunities in Chigwell but it could be worth looking at the flexible booking patterns and a range of funding options, offered by this Chigwell nursery.
