Plumstead Children’s Centre also offers childcare places in the Plumstead Day Nursery located within the Children’s Centre. The nursery is run by Home-start Greenwich and supports families with children under 5 and therefore have a wealth of experience in the welfare of young children. Home-start Greenwich took over the nursery in September 2016 and we continue to make improvements to the service we provide and will continue to do so.

We are also very accessible by public transport links and provide a happy safe environment where children can play, grow, learn and be themselves.

Offering year round care and have space for 56 children and attendance can be on a full week or full day basis. We are also happy to take children who are eligible for Early Years funding. Since September 2017 we have incorporated the 30 hours free funding into our nursery offer.

If you are interested in a place for your child or want further information, please contact them on 020 8317 6960

Specific Children’s Centre Support


Children’s Centres offer support to families within our area in a variety of ways. All families go through some difficult times and our service understands that we can play a part in empowering mothers, fathers and carers in their role as parents. We can signpost you to services which you may wish to access. We can offer you one to one support with various issues. If you have concerns about anything please talk to our staff.



The Parents Forum is made up of parents who want to get involved with the Children’s Centre which they normally attend. There are opportunities to have your say regarding activities and events which take place at the centres. If you would like to get involved please contact the Children’s Centre which is closest to you.

We want you to come and enjoy the activities at our centres, we know the challenges of getting children ready and the logistics of getting anywhere, please call us if you are running late and please let us know how we can help.

More than one? Don’t be put off by the age ranges, it can be difficult to attend a class not designed to meet all your children’s needs, do not be put off, we are here to help and can accommodate most requests.
