Friendly Families Nursery is a new, not-for-profit nursery operating from a purpose built setting in Deptford, Lewisham.

We opened in September 2020 and are experiencing lots of local interest from families who connect with our innovative family focus, our creativity and the wonderful outdoor space that we have. 

Our nursery is welcoming , caring, affordable, high quality and nurturing.

Friendly Families Nursery welcomes children aged between 2 and 5 years old. We are open for 50 weeks per year, and offer long (8am to 6pm) and short days (9am to 3pm). The admissions policy and fees are designed to be inclusive for a broad range of families. We currently have 19 children registered with the nursery and can cater for 24 children each day. The nursery staff team are highly valued for their skills and experience and work alongside parent volunteers who bring local knowledge and additional skills.

Part of our mission is to recognise the vital skills of early years professionals and to ensure they are valued and rewarded, with secure well paid positions.

Friendly Families Nursery is committed to working with children, parents and the community to protect the rights and safety of the children, young people and vulnerable adults involved with the nursery. We implement best practice safeguarding measures, and provide high quality training for our staff and volunteers. Our safeguarding policy is available on our website.
