One of the South East’s fastest expanding nursery groups for under-fives, is due to open a new site in Eltham, by early September.
Fennies Nurseries, the nursery group, which has 11 sites around London, Surrey and Kent, is currently reconstructing a shell of a former building, on Westmount Road, Eltham which will be launched in September.
The new nursery will feature a custom designed garden, especially suited to young children.
Fennies Eltham will welcome up to 80 children under the age of five, and also features a ‘sensory experience’ for babies.
The nursery will also offer an exclusive space for parents to work or relax while their child plays, as well as an app-based chef-prepared meal service called Fennies Fresh, from which parents can order dinner during the day, and pick up when collecting their kids.
The nursery group, which started in the early 1990s, has a track record of redeveloping often former derelict or poorly utilised spaces, into light, welcoming, tech-enabled nurseries, some of which have received architectural accolades.
Steven Fenn, CEO and co-founder of Fennies, said: “We’re delighted to be launching Eltham following extensive reconstruction of the nursery, to create a bespoke environment designed specifically with early years in mind.
“Our award-winning nurseries are known as a place for parents and children to learn, play, and be part of a community and we look forward to welcoming Eltham families.”
In 2020, Fennies won NMT (Nursery Management Today’s) Nursery Group of the Year Award and Fennies Woking & Wimbledon were shortlisted for RIBA retrofit design awards.
