Our Ilford Nursery

Tic Toc nursery in Ilford is located in a large, spacious property that’s a wonderful place for babies and under-fives to play, learn and develop as individuals. It’s a beautiful building that’s homely, warm and safe — a perfect place to nurture children in their formative years.

The nursery has 3 main rooms and children have a settling-in session in the first instance. Although each room is primarily designed for a specific age group, children transition to the next classroom only when the time is right for them. This decision is a joint one made by parents and staff, including a ‘Key Person’ who is assigned to each child.

Bears Pre-School

– for children aged approx. 3 – 5 years

The ‘Bears’ area is our pre-school, a purpose-built classroom for children aged from 3 to 5 years. The main aim of the pre-school is to prepare children for school and, as such, to also nurture a degree of independence.

We have a reading scheme that allows preschoolers to get exposure to the initial stages of the Early Years curriculum, a range of free-choice activity opportunities and planned activities that include a current topic of interest. Visits are also made to places of interest, including as part of the topic work.

Additional areas of focus, in readiness for school, include pencil control, an introduction to writing, simple mathematical concepts and using a computer.

Outdoor Area & Garden

Our spacious outdoor area is a wonderful open-air environment where children can learn, play and be stimulated by a wide variety of outdoor activities. It’s also a great opportunity to simply enjoy the fresh air, particularly in warmer months of the year when children can spend more time outside.

The area even includes a play area specifically designated for children aged up to just 2 years of age. Older children get to enjoy and learn new skills via the vegetable patch, play house and climbing frame.

Important ‘Forest School’ resources are also included, so children can learn about the importance of nature. Playing outdoors will teach children new skills, to manage risks and to learn about the physical world.
