What we're about

 Our Federation is a successful partnership of two Maintained Nursery Schools and Children’s Centre services in the London borough of Croydon, where our emphasis is on providing high quality early education and support for the children and families we work with. The nursery schools work closely together on ensuring high quality standards of education and care, whilst maintaining their individual characters. Our offer is expanded by our links with the wide range of Children’s Centre services that further supports our work to improve outcomes for young children and their families.

  • Staff at Selhurst help the children thrive, enacting evidence-based approaches which you might expect to see in a high-quality specialist nursery.
    Educational Psychologist, 2023
  • Selhurst Nursery is a special place for children to learn, play and grow. They flourish due to the standard of education and care that they receive.                                                                                            Staff make sure that all children, including those with SEND, make strong progress through the curriculum. Provision for these children is in many ways exceptional.

  • The school has developed an aspirational curriculum. It sets out a clear sequence of knowledge and skills that all children need to develop in all areas of learning.                OFSTED (Crosfield), 2024
