Puddle Jumpers Nursery Wapping
St Peters Centre, Reardon Street
London E1W 2QH
Set within the charming streets of Wapping, our newest setting is a five minute walk from Wapping Overground Station.
Built in 1871 this stunning and unique building provides our children with ample space and opportunity to spend their most formative years.
There are 7 classrooms tailored to specific age groups, all of which have beautiful large windows flooding the rooms with natural sunlight. We have created an environment that is bright and stimulating whilst also warm and cosy for the children to feel comfortable and secure.
Mini Kitchen – Our aspiring chefs have access to a custom child-height kitchen for cooking and baking activities within our beautiful conservatory.
Life Sciences – Also housed in our conservatory, our miniature scientists have opportunities to bring the outside in and explore scientific concepts in a fun and engaging way.
Art Atelier – The Reggio approach highlights the environment as the third teacher and our dedicated Art Room is evidence of this. The space is bright and allows children to feel inspired, use box modelling and recycled materials to express themselves through art and design.
Sensory House – Our custom designed Sensory House is dedicated to the enrichment of children’ s senses, it is an area for calm relaxation, meditation and togetherness.
Dedicated Library – We love books at Puddle Jumpers! Our bespoke reading nooks encourage children to spend some quiet time with their parents or staff devouring pages of our favourite children’s books that can also be borrowed to read at home.
Garden and Outdoor Learning
Our large outdoor space has been designed to stimulate physical play and provide children with ample opportunities to learn about nature. The garden is designed as two distinct areas reflecting the different areas of learning and development – everything from learning to nurture plants in our raised growing beds, make ‘chocolate cupcakes’ in the mud kitchen, have fun with water pumps, find insects in our bug hotel, or get physical on our bespoke climbing structure and tricycle track followed by some quiet time in our sheltered seating area.
Our Forest School curriculum is delivered in local green spaces including Wapping Green, Wapping Gardens and Waterside Gardens, all a short walk away. Being close to the River Thames and Spirit Quay, you will spot our Puddle Jumpers children on their regular outings to watch the boats and experience the wonderful learning opportunities within the local community.
