Bonny Downs Nursery is your new, friendly local community nursery!
Purpose-built in 2021 to the highest standards, our nursery offers clean and modern facilities to ensure your child’s comfort and support their development.
We are based at The Well Community Centre in East Ham.
We’re open 10 hours a day from 8am to 6pm, 5 days a week – and 51 weeks a year.
Why choose us?
Caring childcare professionals
You can get on with your week without worry, knowing your children are being well looked after by our highly-qualified and experienced team.
Our childcare services are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, and we’ve been running regular parent and toddler groups since 2008, and our After School Club since 2012!
Competitive pricing with all-inclusive fees
We help you make your money go further for you and your family – and you don’t need to worry about unexpected costs. Read more about our pricing here!
Make full use of your childcare allowances
If you’re eligible for government-provided Free Childcare, Tax-Free Childcare, Tax Credits or Universal Credit for childcare, you may also be able to use your allowances with us! Read more.
A choice of packages to suit you
Open from 8am to 6pm five days a week, our extended opening hours work around your schedule – and you can choose from full-time or part-time childcare options to suit your family’s needs.
Balanced and engaging programmes
Our carefully-structured programmes mean your children will have lots of fun and will love to learn – and they’re designed to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our community too! Read more about our curriculum here
Priority access to BDCA’s full suite of family services
When you join our nursery, we’ll give you access to all our charity’s family services – such as:
- Support for low-income households, such as our food bank and family hub (where eligible)
An ethical community approach
Did you know that we reinvest surplus income from our nursery fees back into running other services for the community?
That means that by joining our nursery you’ll be supporting your neighbours in need too!
Partnership with parents
We really welcome your input and partnership! We offer a range of opportunities to get involved in shaping our programmes, and opportunities to share learning at home too.
We also give families access to an innovative app, eyLog, to help them stay connected with your child’s learning journey. It provides regular news and photo updates, an instant messaging facility and the ability to track your child’s curriculum and development.
We put your child’s safety first
Our brand new building has been designed to be both child-friendly and safe.
Our child-focused recruitment policy includes DBS checks for all team members, and our security policy includes a secure door entry system, staff-only key fob access and password procedure for those collecting children.
“At Bonny Downs we really care. Your child is not just a number to us, but a valid member of our community. We cannot wait to be part of your children’s journey and growth!”
– Stacey Cordery, Service Director – Children, Youth and Families Provision
We offer three different programmes for children, carefully tailored to the specific needs of your child’s age group:
- Babies (under-2s, from 6 months old)
- Toddlers (2 years)
- Pre-school (3-4 years)
In January 2022, we opened for Pre-School children and Toddlers to the nursery. In April 2022, we began to welcome Babies too (from six months old to two years), who are particularly under-served in Newham!
