Our Nursery

Welcome to Rightstart Day Nursery Ilford

Our Ilford Nursery is located in the Cadet Centre, we have two cozy rooms, one  for the babies and another for toddlers as well as a large space for the preschool children. The building has effective security, parents enter through an intercom entry system ensuring that people unknown to the staff are not able to enter the nursery. 

The children access outdoor play morning and afternoon, we have access to an outside area with space for physical play, growing, exploration as well as a fun packed mud kitchen. 

We make use of the local environment taking the children on trips to the local park, they walk to a nearby field to visit the horse as well as visit Aldi to purchase food to cook and eat. The children love to visit Pets At Home to learn about animals and also venture to B&Q when they need seeds for planting, tools for building projects such as den building and making planters. 

On occasion we have visits from the Dentist, Police, and even the Firemen to develop the children’s understanding of people who help us. 

We weave our four aims into the daily routine, children take part in growing projects and caring for living things, Makaton is used to develop communication through the children’s play, independence is encouraged through play, daily routines, self care and eating.

To strengthen our relationship with parents,  you are always welcome, when festivals and celebrations are taking place. Parents often come in to teach the children about special events, show their pets from home or event teach us about their profession. 

We have a parents forum who liaise with each other to plan events for the nursery, the forum is a great opportunity to make suggestions for the nursery and stay up to date with upcoming events. 

There is a meeting room upstairs in the nursery, this can be used for parents’ events such as Makaton training, to host the parents’ forum and also parents’ meetings with the key person.

Our Rooms

Mini Explorers

Wg6t E2o

Our baby rooms can accommodate babies up to 24 months. At this age our babies are exploring through their senses, making sense of the world through experimenting with different textures and sounds

Our staff implement the routines that you have established at home. This provides familiarity and supports children to settle in with ease.

We encourage and use baby signing to help babies express their needs before they have learnt to communicate through speech. All activities are planned to support their growth and development into healthy and happy toddlers.


Toddler Horns

We understand that toddlers love to explore, because of this we design an environment where the children can access the materials independently, opportunities to explore messy and  creative materials which are available daily.

Role play and small world resources are offered to help children become familiar with the world around them, we offer physical play in the nursery as well as in the outdoor learning environment to help the children learn coordination and balance, become physically active and understand how to manipulate their body in diverse ways.

We encourage Yoga and dance as well as climbing, bikes, scooters, and obstacle courses. group times for toddlers offer a time to develop communication, listening and attention skills and team work.


Preschool Horns

Your child’s independence and self-help is growing! We support your child to develop a stronger sense of their own identity and place in the world. We help in building their attention span and verbal skills as they are now able to experience different adventures.  Opportunities to develop listening and attention skills, working with others and getting ready for the routines they will experience when they start school.

Literacy and numeracy are promoted through play based learning, following you child’s interests.
