For the chicks

Our In-house Sports Teachers and Weekly Sports Sessions for 2 Plus Year Olds

We have our own in-house Sports Teachers who visit each of our nurseries on a weekly basis, giving our 2 plus year old chicks a chance to experience a range of sports, music and performing arts activities.

Forest School

This is an activity for children in their last academic year with us, to develop and encourage an awareness and appreciation of our natural world. The sessions are run by trained in-house Forest School Teachers to allow our little explorers to discover, interact and understand the ever-changing natural world within the realm of small nearby forests. 

Sports - extracurricular

To make your chick's time in the nest extra special we offer extracurricular activities such as dance, football, swimming and tennis lessons. For more details see our fact sheets below.

How we allocate places for our extracurricular activities

We do not run a waiting list for activities. If a child attends the nursery they are automatically eligible to be offered a place. Places are offered in the following order of priority:-

  1. Children who attend the nursery on a full day care basis 5 days per week

  2. Children who attend the nursery on a full day care basis 4 days per week

  3. Chronologically (oldest to youngest)

The majority of places become available in September each year. However other places do come up at other times based on cancellations and children leaving the nursery.

For further details see our Activities Admissions Policy and our Activities Terms & Conditions

You can also contact our Admissions Team on 020 8942 5779 or activities@dickybirds.co.uk.

Entertainment, learning and trips (both big and small)

We also invite outside entertainment to the nursery such as mobile farms, puppet shows and musical groups. These activities may incur an additional fee.

With so many opportunities to learn and explore on our doorstep, mini trips to locations within the community are a must. From visiting the local shops to pick up ingredients for baking, to looking out for the 57 bus and counting cars - the chicks are constantly learning and developing their maths and literacy skills. We are surrounded by lovely local parks and other areas of interest so the nurseries can plan their trips in advance or on the spur of the moment - just like you would at home.

However, we also organise some grander outings! In recent years these have included trips down the Thames, local farms and temples as well as visits to the Science Museum, the London Aquarium and Battersea Park Zoo. With exciting journeys on trains, buses and boats the chicks love to lend a hand picking, planning and preparing for these trips. Parents are also very welcome to come along and join in the fun!
