Welcome to Quince Tree Day Nursery, we are a high standard, conveniently located children’s nursery in South Ockendon. Our mission is to provide the highest quality childcare that is both accessible and affordable.
We are a 30 place Day Nursery and Preschool that caters for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years. Our nursery is separated by age group, we have a 0-2 year old room, a 2-3 year old room and a 3-5 year old room, but our flexible approach means we not only look at the child’s age, but also on their stage of development.
We are committed to providing our children and parents with high quality childcare. We do this by meeting the children’s nutritional, emotional and educational needs. For our parents we offer information, advice and an open door policy. We are committed to working with our parents to nurture our children to become confident, able, healthy and caring individuals.
