Nursery Information

Bluebirds Day Nursery is a GOOD nursery according to OFSTED and our parents. We are accommodated within a tastefully-renovated storey building on London Road in Grays. The nursery has an outdoor area at the back of the property and a huge car park at the front for parent's use. We are registered with OFSTED to care for children from 5 months to 5 years.

At Bluebirds, the quality of care and the happiness of your child is our main concern.  We feel that enjoyable and interesting experiences are the key to positive attitudes towards learning, so the emphasis is on learning through fun. A wide range of toys and resources are available to encourage the children to reach their full potential.  Observations of the children are undertaken during their play to enable the staff to plan activities based on their interests and to widen their knowledge. Our daily activities are based on the 4 themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage which are; 'unique child', 'positive relationships', 'enabling environment' and 'physical development. It also covers the 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas of learning.

 Prime areas

  1. Personal, social and emotional development
  2. Physical development
  3. Communication and Language

Specific areas

  1. Literacy
  2. Mathematics
  3. Understanding the World
  4. Expressive Arts and Design

Our aim is to promote a learning environment both indoor and outdoor to give our children the ability to go on the next stage confidently when it is time for them to leave for "big school".
