Our Nursery

Our nursery is set in a convenient Paddington location, and provides us with wonderful space for exciting play and exploration which our children thrive in.

Merchant Square Day Nursery in Paddington is conveniently located in the Merchant Square residential and leisure area, just off Harbet Road, next to the canal. We’re just a few hundred yards (a 5 minute walk) from Paddington Railway Station and Tube Station, a 5 minute walk from Edgware Road Tube Station, and a 10 minute walk from Marylebone Railway Station - making us extremely convenient for anyone commuting by train, or Tube and attracting a wide cross section of parents from across London and to the west of the city.  

Our Paddington nursery has been ‘purpose built’ to a very high standard. Our wonderful large rooms are bright and airy, giving our children lots of space to explore, play and learn. The nursery is warm and welcoming and has a homely feel which we love, and are very proud of, and provides the perfect space in which to nurture and care for children and their families.  

We’ve developed separate rooms for our 'babies and toddlers' (3 months to 24 months), our 2 -3 year olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for and encouraged to explore and investigate. We operate the rooms for older children with direct access for the children to our unique ‘indoor / outdoor’ play area – which allows them to free-flow indoors and out, depending on their preference.

If you visit our day nursery in Paddington, you’ll see that it benefits greatly from this ‘indoor / outdoor’ play area, which provides for exciting outdoor play and exploration. Each age group has its own designated outdoor play equipment and toys; we have digging and planting areas which we use to teach the children about growing and about food; and we have ‘sand play’ areas in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.

Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Paddington with such unique ‘outdoor’ facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our ‘baby and toddler’ room is equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest - and IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.

We are committed to being the best day nursery in Paddington, as well as to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.

We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:

  • Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
  • Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
  • Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
  • Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
  • Children and adults having fun!

We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Merchant Square Day Nursery in Paddington.
