Our Nursery in Southwark

Welcome to Rockingham Community nursery in Southwark. We are a purpose built nursery which is a registered charity run by a parent management committee that has been established for 23 years. We aim to provide good quality childcare and education in a safe, secure and stimulating environment to children from 2 years to 5years of age.


A special feature we have is our service to settling children into the nursery. We welcome our parents to stay and play as much as they feel necessary, which is why we have happy and content children always keen to attend nursery.


We have amalgamated the Two - Fives together in a large open plan room providing a good social integration with opportunities and facilities to promote their independence and development. Within this age group, we have also allocated children aged three to five years their own quarters to ensure that they are prepared for main stream school. This includes a computer area and library area. We have relevant equipment promoting the independence of each child, including their own art and craft room, role play room, construction play room and a special area where we have built a den for the children to retire to.


We provide exciting opportunities for children to explore, which helps to create the right balance needed for children to progress within their development. We know the importance of neutering children's developments and will plan for outside agencies and outings to assist with their knowledge and understanding, relating to their current planning activities.


We have a superb outdoor play area that is brightly decorated and suitable for all age groups to enjoy. We have a vast range of equipment for the children to use to promote their gross motor and social skills. We encourage as much outdoor play as possible, giving the children plenty of time to let off steam!
