Bringing love back…
Magdalen Nursery opened their flagship nursery setting in 2018. We became aware of a landmark building which had been abandoned for many years and left in despair. The old Church of Christ on Cheam Road is an award winning modernist building that had not been used for years. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to bring love back to this incredible building and restore it to house one of our most beautiful nurseries.
Magdalen Nursery, Sutton is probably one of the most unique settings in London. The beautifully converted church has become a haven for children to express themselves, explore and play. The incredible main hall is a treehouse themed space with dedicated Art areas, a Construction Zone and a beautiful library. Children have the freedom to play and express their interests in the hall where all the 7 areas of learning and present and available to them. The hall is a place of wonder for our children and has to be seen to be believed!
As with all nurseries in our group, Magdalen Nursery, Sutton has an exclusive “classroom” for our preschool children. Here, children are prepared for “big school” with a slightly more structured approach to ensure children do not feel out of place when they move on to Primary School. We still learn through play, of course, but we place emphasis subjects and topics which are more interesting to children approaching school age.
Like all Magdalen Nursery settings, we take pride that our gardens are excellent spaces for children to run freely, play with out limits and explore nature. Sutton has a two very large gardens which are designed to reflect the separate areas of learning and development. We really have covered all the bases where a child’s interest might lie – everything from a climbing castle, a secret garden, ramps to ride bikes down and an abundance of trees and nature. We firmly believe in the importance of outdoor space for our children living in London. We all spend as much time outside, come rain or shine – and our garden are designed to provide a fun learning environment, whatever the weather.
