Growing Beans is a childminding nursery and preschool in Norbury with a difference. We embrace the outdoors and incorporate the full EYFS curriculum.

Our approach means the children get to be outdoors playing sports and games, and creating a home from home that makes every child feel happy, safe and secure. 

 

Taking children aged 0 months - 5 years and combining the best of traditional nursery learning, we have a brand new, fantastic space in Norbury. Our nursery boasts new learning and developmental techniques based on Forest School principles.

Our childminding hours:

7:30am-6:30pm Monday-Friday

Our babies have a lot of fun!

 

Babies and toddlers have different needs, so we always ensure everything is tailored specifically to your child’s interests. 

 

Childminding at Growing Beans Norbury is holistic, so we spend lots of time reading stories, playing music and singing songs with our babies. There are lots more planned activities and games on offer too.

 

For example, phonics, play ball, ballet, Spanish and a singing and action class run by adventure box. We follow different themes each month and do a wide range of arts and grafts, sports, outdoor games and more. 

Toddler Time

As part of our Forest School ethos, outdoor learning is a huge part of our our learning and development. We get the children out every day for a nature walk to Norbury park where we will do some child led activities, running, ball games or other physical activities and visiting the Library. 

Care at Growing Beans Norbury is holistic so we also spend lots of time reading stories, playing music and singing songs with our babies. There are lots more planned activities and games on offer, we follow different themes each month and do a wide range of arts and grafts, sports such as tennis, outdoor games and so much more.
