About Us



COVID 19 (coronavirus) - Week commencing: Monday 18th May 2020

We are closed today for all children, except for those identified children of eligible key workers and vulnerable children.  
All other families can call our school phone number on 0208 534 3136 if they need to speak to someone. We are still here to help with any issues you may have.

Please be aware that we are calling ALL of our families regularly and this might be from a withheld or private number. Please answer your phone and apologies that we cannot always use an identified number.

If you are a key worker and have recently been informed that your childcare provider in Newham has closed, please contact to share your urgent childcare requirements.

If you require family support help and advice, we are still here for you; you can call the school number on 0208 534 3136.

Just because we are closed for the majority, it doesn't mean that we are not still here for you but please remember to "Stay Home and Use the Phone" to get in contact.

Please keep an eye on our website, on facebook and twitter for updates.

Finally, please make sure you heed the governmental guidance which is there to protect us all:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

Staying at home and away from others (social distancing)

“Rebecca Cheetham is a very dynamic nursery, my son has learnt and has been exposed to far more than I can imagine. The nursery is open to working with parents to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children and open to criticism in order to learn, lead and serve. Wonderful crop of teaching and support staff. An outstanding provision!”
A Rebecca Cheetham Parent

We are an Ofsted judged Outstanding nursery school that caters for 2, 3 and 4 year old children; we offer government funded places for 2 year olds, 3 and 4 year olds and the 30 hours, as well as flexible paid extended day places. We also have a children’s centre that offers a myriad of different activities for the people in our community.

Our staff are caring, enthusiastic and have the right knowledge and expertise for working with children under five; they know how to get the very best out of your children and are more than happy to share that knowledge with you.

We have wonderful open spaces for children to roam and explore and we provide a large variety of activities based around the interests of your children.
Rebecca Cheetham children are happy, curious and enjoy their experience at nursery. They form close relationships with their key workers and leave our setting Reception Ready.

Our Best Start In Life Children’s Centre do fantastic work in our commun ity neighbourhood and sessions are always busy and a fantastic opportunity for you to bond with your child, get some parenting advice and build your support networks.

We proudly work in close partnership with The Tapscott Learning Trust and Newham Nursery Schools. We also work with private, voluntary and independent childcare settings in sharing good practice and our Deputy Head, Mandy, is a trained auditor in ITERS (Infant Toddler Environment Rating Scale).
