New Eltham


Our pre-school at New Eltham is located in a Scouts Hall surrounded by a woodland environment. The pre-school is open Monday to Friday during term time between the hours of 9.15am to 12.15pm. Afternoon sessions, lunch club and full days are available according to demand.

The pre-school is set up each morning with a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors that are developmentally appropriate, and meet the needs of the individual children.

The Team

Our Manager Jan Blanks has worked for Village Nurseries for the last twenty years, and has a wealth of experience supporting the very young in the community.

The success of New Eltham is due to the hard work and dedication of the staff team.

All our staff hold relevant childcare qualifications and are exceptionally proud of the stimulating learning environment they create for the children on a daily basis.

Some members of our staff have received instructions and training from a ‘Forest School Leader’. Children are given weekly opportunities to explore the great outdoors in a specially designated area in the garden.

What is Forest School? Forest School uses the outdoor environment to help all children learn. Children are encouraged to develop independence skills, improve decision making, and raise their self esteem through small achievable tasks. Forest School sessions are child led, to accommodate individual learning styles and schemes. Children are encouraged to make choices, and follow their own learning supported by members of the staff team.

Studying the natural environment

Jan and the team look forward to meeting you and your child and showing you around their pre-school and would be happy to answer any questions you may have with regard to pre-school life.
