About the nursery

Bushy Tails Nursery and Pre-School provides Early Years education and care to children from birth to 5 years old, for employees of NPL, OPSS or LGC in Teddington only.

You can find us not far from Queens Road and Teddington stations. We’re a bright, spacious nursery with a large outdoor space, including three gardens and our very own allotment.

The children enjoy a wide range of activities from body painting to making bread, sensory play using foam and ice to singing nursery rhymes. We also regularly visit Bushy Park, offering children a close up to nature and the great outdoors.
