Cumnor House Nursery Purley & Croydon

Children can join Cumnor House Nurseries from age 2+ at either our Purley or South Croydon sites. Choose from term-time only or year-round provision.

Has your child just turned two? Spaces are available for September 2018 start. Contact our admissions team today.

Cumnor House has two Nursery sites across Surrey; our Nursery in South Croydon, and our Nursery in Purley. Despite there being two Nurseries as part Cumnor House School, they both work towards one common aim; to be the best Nursery in South Croydon.

The combination of an experienced team of specialist nursery staff and the excellent facilities at Cumnor House Nursery provide the perfect environment for our young pupils to learn and grow. At Cumnor House Nursery, there is a real focus on play-based learning. We believe that this approach helps the children to engage with education from an early age and sets them up nicely for moving into a more structured environment in our Boys School or Girls School.

For more information about the Nursery at Cumnor House, you can request a prospectus today, or book a visit to your desired Nursery site.

Nursery Facilities

Huge investment in our Pampisford Road nursery site during summer 2017 has seen the facilities transformed. The pavilion was completely rebuilt whilst the bungalow has been fully refurbished and both are newly furnished.

Nursery Nutrition

We are passionate about providing healthy, nutritious and interesting meals for your children at our nurseries because we know how essential good nutrition is for the development of strong bones, teeth, muscles and a generally healthy body and focused mind. We encourage children to be independent with their choices but always keep a close eye and offer encouragement to try new things when the need arises. Pre-school children are bursting with energy and so their need for nutrients is high. Our carefully designed menus reflect this and we make great use of seasonal produce.
