About Us

Northover Fruit Tree Day Nursery – Lewisham/Grove Park/Bromley

* Osted Inspection Grade - GOOD In all areas*

We are The Fruit Tree Day Nursery, a colorful, vibrant nursery group situated in the heart of London. Our newest Nursery is located at Northover, (BR1 Lewisham/Grove Park & Bromley border).

We launched in September 2015 undergoing a 360-transformation, refurbishing the building from top-to-toe CREATING A BRIGHTER,MORE MODERN AND EXCITING PLACE. It looks absolutely fantastic, we have high-quality resources so we are able to bring the nursery and pre-school curriculum to life in the most engaging and creative ways possible, caring for babies from 3 months old to Toddlers and Pre School children up to 5 years of age.

We have an in-house chef who continues our tradition of hearty and healthy home-cooked meals. Many of the meals that we serve in our settings have been parent-suggested and represent the vibrant cultures of our children. From Spanish fish with potato and sweet corn stew to sweet-chilli chicken with rice and peas the tastes are nutritiously varied, and we consider all cultural, religious and dietary requirements.

In addition to a wide-range of resources, and nutritious meals to support your child’s development, we have two open spaces for the children to explore through play and discovery – a fully equipped garden attached to the baby area, and a large play area for the older children furnished with toys and learning resources, our gardens are a key feature of the nursery which engages the energies and explorational minds of our children.
We also have a outdoor nature themed mud kitchen for further outside play engagement.

All equipment are of the highest safety standards, the gardens are full of fresh air and leafy, and will provide a great starting point for many outdoor-learning topics such as the weather, gardening and mini-beasts. As an example, children in our settings have grown their own strawberries and tomatoes.

We pride ourselves on being accessible to all parents. As such, we have extremely competitive fees and offer the various grants such as free 15-hours childcare grant for 2-4 year-old's, and also offer the new 30 hours free childcare for 3-4 year old's.

The management and staff have worked very hard to create a place where children feel safe and valued and a place where parents can be assured their child is being cared for and encouraged at every opportunity.
Northover Fruit Tree Day Nursery looks forward to welcoming your child to our ever-expanding family!

We are rated GOOD with Many fantastic features by Ofsted in December 2017 ( our first Ofsted inspection since our launch) here is some key extracts from the report -

"Babies develop good physical skills. For example, they climb in and out of play equipment with ease. Children acquire good skills for their next stage of learning, including starting school"

"Toddlers are busy and explore their learning areas confidently"

"Staff ensure that all children understand the setting's routines and learn what is expected of them. For example, they use the visual timetable and communication picture cards to help support children whose first language is not English to become familiar with routine changes"

"Overall, staff engage well with children and provide many opportunities for children to share their experiences, such as through a wide variety of role-play activities. For example, older children enjoy washing the dolls and role playing in the hairdresser salon. Staff skilfully join in to support children's play"

"The manager and staff evaluate the effectiveness of the setting well and include others when making changes to help improve outcomes for children. For example, the setting has improved learning opportunities in the outdoor play area to help those children who learn best outside to make progress"

"Staff carry out rigorous risk assessment to help keep children safe"

We have another Nursery setting in Cambwerwell Green, Southwark who also have a Good Ofsted grade and we have also been successful in bringing high standards of care and professionalism to your new Northover Fruit Tree Nursery, we cannot wait for you to join us.
