Our Location & Community



Scallywags Nursery, Hornchurch is located within 4 minutes walking distance from Hornchurch station. Our detached converted house represents a home from home environment, allowing easy transition for children when entering into childcare.

We are privileged to be able to offer 5 different play rooms within our nursery, each allocated to a different age group. This enables us to focus more intensely on the varied needs and development of all of the children within our care. We care for 50 children per day.

Being sited within a local community, with good transport links and easy available access to various sites of interest means that we are able to take groups of children on local trips. Parks, Train Stations, Fire Station, Public Gardens, Supermarkets and Libraries etc are all within easy reach. These local amenities provide ample opportunities for children to learn about the life around them and gain knowledge and understanding of the world.

For example a simple trip to the supermarket can enable children to see, feel, smell different fruits and develop knowledge on where and how these grow! These trips will then be followed up once back at nursery and extended upon…..

Our children benefit from helping the community, every week the children cook dinner for the local homeless shelter. We visit the local care home for song and exercise time once a month as well as going the Alzheimer’s support club to interact and have fun with the members. We also support further afield sponsoring a nursery school for orphans in Uganda, of which staff have been to visit taking supplies and sharing knowledge.
