Welcome from the Head Teacher
Dear mums, dads and carers,
Edith Kerrison Nursery School and Children's Centre offers you and your child a warm welcome. We seek to work together with you to give your child the best start in life through nurturing their well-being and enabling them to become confident, creative and resilient learners. We are committed to children, parents, families and staff learning together by providing a safe, exciting and inclusive learning environment full of stimulating and inspiring learning experiences and opportunities.
We are located in Custom House where we have been established as a state maintained nursery school for over 80 years and our Children's Centre is the lead centre for Custom House and Canning Town. Some of our families bring East End traditions to Edith Kerrison, whilst others bring global experiences. We believe together we are a stronger community.
We have a talented multi-disciplinary team of teachers, educators, outreach and family support workers to help our community on its learning journey. We work in partnership with other professionals including speech therapists, health visitors, nutritionists, special needs workers and return to work officers.
We aim for the highest standards and aspirations for your child and fully acknowledge the important part you play in this as your child's first teacher. We want to make a difference together to ensure your child's time here is a happy and successful one.
