We are currently recruiting for a skilled and experienced Nursery Room Manager to look after the stunning baby room of our Lee nursery. The nursery is our second largest setting with 134 places across 6 spacious playrooms. Our nursery offers state-of-the-art facilities, combining bright and spacious indoor rooms along with fabulous outdoor areas.
Opened in 2010, Little Elms Lee is housed in a sympathetically renovated Victorian building in Handen Road. With an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’. We now have a brand new preschool building adjacent to the main building opening in November 2018.
Little Elms Lee offers a bespoke baby unit (3 months to 2 years) in the main building and a toddler unit (2-3 years) next door, with state of the art facilities and features areas designed around the specific needs of both ages. The nursery has both carpeted areas for comfortable play and washable areas for messy activities.
Our brand new fully refurbished preschool (3-5 years) features great equipment including an interactive whiteboard and dedicated IT area, giving children an excellent preparation for Primary school as well as weekly French lessons and Tennis lessons throughout the Summer free of charge.
As well as spacious and bright rooms inside, the nursery has plenty of space and resources for outdoor play with purpose equipped gardens for each age group. Careful processes for signing children in and out and the operation of CCTV systems ensure maximum safety for your child.
With a full time qualified Chef, Little Elms Lee ensures that children enjoy tasty and nutritious meals and snacks, including a plentiful supply of fresh fruit. Ideally located between Hither Green and Lee stations, which both offer direct links to central London, Little Elms Lee is also close to major bus routes and just a mile from the DLR station at Lewisham.
