Creating positive outcomes with children and young people in their communities, and support for families with nursery, day care, holiday and year-round programmes.

YMCA Thames Gateway Group run Ofsted registered day nurseries and pre-school facilities, each offering the best quality childcare to meet the individual needs of every child.

Our nurseries are specifically designed with children in mind: large, bright, colourful play rooms and outdoor play areas, complete with modern equipment and a variety of age-appropriate toys that children adore.

We believe that a happy and relaxed environment will help your child feel at home and secure when they attend nursery.

We pride ourselves on our caring, experienced and highly qualified team of staff who will ensure that your child has the right support to foster their development and emotional wellbeing.
