    Loving, Caring & Fun Nursery in Greenwich: Zippy’s Nursery

    At Zippy’s Nursery, we take an approach to your child’s care that encompasses everything–from their comfort and happiness to their growth and development. Above all, we want to be a place your child loves coming to–and that you feel happy and confident leaving them with our Greenwich childcare staff. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum standards for your confidence, but we also make sure to focus on every child who comes to us as an individual.

    Activities: Never a Dull Moment

    We are proud to be the best nursery in Greenwich, and every day provide plenty of fun things for the children to do. This can include arts and crafts or a variety of outdoor activities to keep everyone active. Whatever they’re doing, you can rest assured it’s a fun group activity that helps your child make friends while teaching them the fundamentals of their independence and identity.

    Our Promise: True Care

    Being away from your child can be really hard at these young ages. It’s not just about where you’re leaving them, or what they’re doing–but whom they’re with, how they’re feeling, and even what they’re eating. Our promise is that every aspect of your child’s care will be attended to with the same level of love and attention as you would. Our in-house chef will prepare nutritious meals and our care staff are mums themselves with all the experience you could want out of childcare professionals–your kids could not be in better hands.
