About 'Growing Beans' Norbury

Growing Beans is a child care nursery and preschool in Norbury with a difference. 

 

Taking children aged 3 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. 

Ofsted Number: 2563294

Our child carers in Norbury have a childcare philosophy that incorporates the full EYFS curriculum. This is about much more than box ticking – it’s about being outdoors, playing sport and creating a home from home that makes children feel happy and safe. 

 

Our fully trained staff, look after children from 7:30am-6:30pm Monday-Friday, minimum 10 hours a day (we are flexible about these timings) – our intake is small so there are always plenty of us to go round.

 

I’m happy to discuss fees once you are ready. Childcare vouchers and government funding are welcome. We also welcome children with special needs. 

Learning

  •  ✓Circle Time – we use singing and finger rhymes to develop children’s vocabulary

  • ✓Free Play – with nudging and encouragement, this allows the children to explore their own interests and instincts

  • ✓Messy Play – working with water, cornflower etc. to discover textures and shapes 

  • ✓Story Time – by following along with the pictures they begin to grasp the fun of written words

Ages: Little to Bigger Beans

Pinto Beans

For our littlest beans we offer the premium home away from home experience. Each and every child is offered personalised individualised care depending on their specific needs. We understand that these formative months require extra care and attention and therefore strive to provide an environment that our young learners feel loved, nurtured and encouraged. 

Broad Beans

As our beans grow we introduce new activities, challenges and themes promoting personal growth and self-confidence. We provide a stimulating environment with hands on sensory experiences including gardening, dress up, nature outing and more. We offer a supportive environment in which children  bond with each other and our child-minders creating a familiar family. 

Runner Beans

Our biggest runner beans prepare for life beyond nursery. We aim to challenge and inspire through homework activities, introduction to languages and maths. We assess the specific development of each child and provide an enriching learning experiences continge-nt upon their individual interests. We encourage leadership, self-confidence and friendship making so that each child goes to school confident and self assured. 

A Typical Baby Day... 

Our babies have so much fun! We know that babies and toddlers have different needs, so we always ensure everything is tailored specifically to your child’s needs. 

 

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. For example, 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

We know that babies and toddlers have different needs, so we always ensure everything is tailored specifically to your child’s needs.
