Matchbox Day Nursery
Day nurseries provide childcare and learning for children from birth to 5 years. They can be run by private businesses, voluntary groups or by the local authority. All day nurseries on the Tower Hamlets Local Offer are registered with Ofsted. Hours vary and usually part time and full time places are available.
The Matchbox Nursery opened in September 2003. We are based at the bottom of a residential block on the edge of a large housing estate. We offer full day care for children aged three months to five years. We are registered for 68 children.
The vast majority of children attending the nursery are from local families who are using childcare for the first time. Our families are from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. We provide a stimulating and exciting environment where free play and well planned structured activities are offered to all children. By using the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum we provide a good base for our children’s future development.
