About us…

Nursery School Dulwich – Excel is an Ofsted registered day nursery catering for over 60 children in the local community. We have extended opening hours to fit in with demands of our discerning parents.

Opening Hours

  • Our standard opening hours are from 8-6pm.
  • Our Forest Hill Nursery offers a early start option from 7.30am until 6.00pm Monday to Friday.
  • The nursery remains open for 50 weeks a year, closing only for 1 week during Easter and 1 week over Christmas which includes the New Year period.

Our aims are:

    • To recognise that each child is an individual and to provide personalised care plans.
    • To enhance the development of children in a caring a stimulating group.
    • To provide a safe, secure and friendly environment for children, parents and staff.
    • To work within a framework which ensures equity of opportunity for all children and families.
    • To work closely with parents and provide support and encouragement for your little ones.



The nursery has been divided into classes according to the children’s age range.

We have our dedicated baby unit which provides a safe and secure environment from the age of three months to two years. The children then progress to the Toddler Room at the age of 2 years which aims to extend and build upon their development.  They then move on to the Pre-school area from the age of three, which is often the time the children are prepared for the important transition into school.
