Christ the King Church Hall
9 Crescent Gardens
Seahorse Nursery Wimbledon Park 2 is located on Arthur Road, less than a minutes walk from Wimbledon Park Tube Station, providing an ideal option for commuting parents. The nursery itself is located inside the Christ the King Church Hall which is a large and open space with a secure outdoor area.
The hall is separated into key sections so that the children have the freedom to choose what activities they would like to participate in and can move freely between each area. The areas consist of: a quite comfy area for reading and reflection, a large carpeted space for group activities like singing and circle time, a section for focused education around maths, English, phonics, and an area where activities change each day depending on the topic of the term or interests of the children. These areas that change often consist of a whole range of activities including messy play, water play, cutting, sticking and other Montessori based activities.
The caring, qualified and friendly staff aim to not only equip the children with the skills needed for school but also for life. While learning, children build independence and social skills through play and first-hand experiences. Every part of the day follows the Seahorse Nursery pedagogies of ‘Loving, Educational and Fun’, this includes meal times which are social occasions where all children come together with staff to develop healthy eating habits and techniques, good manners and other skills.
The location is ideal as it is directly opposite the Wimbledon Park Day Nursery so the children from both locations get to experience different environments as well as socialise with other children outside of their immediate class which is vital for child development. This nursery also takes the children on a range of trips around the local area, as well as on weekly forest school trips to Wimbledon Park. (Mixing of classes and trip are dependent on Covid-19 restrictions at the time and will always follow or Covid-19 policy).
Harriet has been involved in the Seahorse Nursery since it opened and made a career change in 2012 to move into teaching full-time. She is a School Governor for a local Primary School. In her spare time she enjoys high altitude trekking, long distance cycling and running to keep fit. Harriet enjoys using her Qualified Teaching Status for Early Years (specialising in birth to five years) and Level 3 NVQ Children's Care, Learning and Development to give children the best start in life.
Carly studied BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies at Roehampton University and have been working in childcare since 2011. From a young age she has known that she wanted to work with young children, Carly's favourite part about working with children is seeing their speech develop. Even though she is office based, the children still know her name, so if she's not in the office, you may find her reading a story in the room, helping the children eat at mealtimes or having a dance at the end of the day!
