About the nursery

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Ford Road Nursery & Pre-School provides childcare and education to children from birth to 5 years old.

You can find us in Dagenham, not far from Dagenham Heathway tube and Old Dagenham Park. We’re a light, spacious nursery with separate rooms and adjoining gardens for different age groups. The Nursery has a fully-equipped sensory room.

Our experienced staff plan each day with help from the children. There are lots of activities to enjoy… climbing trees, growing veg, woodwork, arts and crafts, storytelling, baking, even the occasional sing-along around our firepit!

The Nursery’s in-house chef provides all meals from scratch using recipes from LEYF’s nutritious menu.

The children love baking day with our chef who brings the cooking out of the kitchen into the classroom.

At Ford Road we have a large garden where the children have their own allotment and grow their own vegetables from seeds.

"All of the staff were most welcoming. My son's transition period was a challenge, but the staff were very supportive and encouraging."

Parent at Ford Road

"The staff were the absolute best - even when you had new starters they were just as good, or better. I felt my child was always safe and looked after, and recommend the nursery to friends all the time."

Parent at Ford Road

"Friendly staff who are great with the children. My son has grown so much since starting nursery."
