Located in the centre of the Fieldway Community (New Addington, Croydon), our full time Day Care Nursery at Wayside offers a fun and friendly environment for children to enjoy and learn in from the age of 18 months.

The group of children are very diverse and enjoy taking part in lots of different projects including celebrating festivals, outdoor play, visiting local older people (in a residential home) and local outings to the library, shops and market place. The children also enjoy environmental projects such as gardening and scrap play and we recently watched some chickens hatch! The setting is very well-resourced with our own on-site cook, large well-equipped play area, dedicated under twos area and our very own soft play corner. The team work very closely with local schools and parents and to offer flexible and wrap around packages - we provide a homely and welcoming atmosphere to all of our children.


At Wayside:

  • We have local staff, who understand the needs of the community.
  • Our children are happy, funny and chatty!
  • We have close relationships with parents and make time for them.
  • Home-cooked dinners are provided on site and mealtimes are always social times.
  • Our staff are committed and have been with us for some years.
