From the Nursery
History of Pound Park
Pound Park Nursery School is a maintained nursery school run by the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Built in 1944, Pound Park was set up to cater for the children whose parents were involved in the war effort. Developed with a core value of delivering high quality early education and having qualified teachers, Pound Park continues this ethos until the present day. Pound Park established itself as a model of good practice for the education of children aged three and four years.
In 2004, Pound Park added the Up to Threes Unit as part of the Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative and we welcomed our first group of children aged 3 months to 3 years old. This service later converted to the Together for Twos programme to support vulnerable two year olds in the area.
In 2006 Pound Park, in conjunction with Sure Start Charlton, became a Children's Centre and another new building- the family room- was added.
In 2011 Pound Park Children's Centre federated with Cardwell Children's Centre and in 2013 we federated with Mulgrave Children's Centre. We ran services, in partnership with other core providers, for families and the community in Charlton and Woolwich.
In 2014, the Children's Centres separated from the main nursery school and a school's company (Central Greenwich Children's Centres) was formed to manage the four federated children's centres - Pound Park Children's Centre, Cardwell Children's Centre, Mulgrave Children's Centre and Eglinton Children's Centre.
Distinctly, and under the direction of the Governors and the Headteacher, Pound Park Nursery School and Together for Twos continues to be federated with the Together for Twos provision contained within Cardwell Children's Centre. Together we offer a high quality provision for 2, 3 and 4 year old children. We maintain a strong relationship with the local Children's Centres to enable our families to access a range of services.
In September 2015, we integrated our two year olds into the main nursery school at Pound Park. This means that our two, three and four year old children are able to learn from each other in an outstanding provision together. Cardwell Together for Twos continues to provide an outstanding provision for two year old children.
