About the nursery

Gumboots Nursery & Pre-School is family-friendly and welcoming. Located in East Dulwich, the nursery takes children on regular visits to the local shops.

Caring and qualified staff make sure that your child feels safe and secure from their very first day at the nursery. Using creativity and play, they nurture a love of learning in each child that lasts for life.

The nursery provides the children with freshly prepared, healthy meals each day. In all nurseries, children will either have access to a garden or go on regular trips to a local park.

Mud kitchens give children the opportunity to explore new tools and have fun with messy play.

The children love our outdoor space and are getting some very hands on learning about gardening.

"As you can imagine, it means the world to me that my son is happy in the days we are apart, and it is very obvious that he is."
