Romford Pre-school & Day Nursery
Truly Scrumptious Early Years Pre-School & Nursery Romford
Truly Scrumptious Early Years Nursery was established In January 2010, When our flagship nursery opened its doors to parents and carers 8 1/2 years ago.
We are a small family run nursery providing a professional childcare service with that home from home feeling that so many parents want for their young children. The Nursery is a lovely detached house in a nice residential area within close proximity of four primary schools. We are within 5 minutes walk to Romford town centre and it is also along a main bus route.
Through play, our professional, dedicated and caring practitioners promote each individual child’s learning and interests.
We respect that parents are their children’s first educators and we hugely value our strong partnership with parents. Parents and carers are welcome to participate at the nursery and we actively encourage an open and respectful relationship between practitioners and our children’s families.
Our policies and procedures cover all areas and with careful utilisation we aim to ensure that the children will always be in a safe and caring environment at all times. We also have in place all the relevant insurance policies.

All fees are due, and payable, one full month in advance by standing order, cash, and cheque and or childcare vouchers. Our fees are calculated using the following formula:

Some parents may be eligible for the extended hours of 30 hours funded. Like the universal funding, we can offer this stretched throughout 51 weeks which totals to 22 hours per week.
If a child is offered a place that includes the settings normal lunch or dinner times but the parent does not want their child to have our meals, then the parent will collect the child and can return after 1 hour.

A very good relationship and bond staff have with – and – .
Staff friendly and always happy to help & supportive.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for the excellent child care that you have provided for both – and – over the past four years. Both of them were very happy at the nursery and – was well prepared for school when she left. We are sad to be taking – out of the nursery and im sure he will miss staff and his friends when we move. We wish the nursery every success in the future.
“-” & “-” have loved being at Truly Scrumptious Nursery, I know they will both miss everyone very , very much! – was only telling me last night he is – key worker!! Ha Ha
Thank you all for making Nursery such a fun & exciting experience for them
All our love
Thank you so much for everything you have done to make – feel welcome and safe at your truly wonderful nursery. I will be most definitely putting our second child on your waiting list, once we’re brave enough to have one!
Tricia and all the staff.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. – has only been here a short time but you have all helped him settle and made him so welcome.
Take care Love, – & Family xx
Very impressed with the quality of the progress folders. I also love how much the staff get to know individual children (eg. Personality, likes, dislikes etc) Most staff make parents feel welcome when they arrive. The ‘Rocket’ is the best thing for my child and I think other children too, to reward good behaviour – great idea.
We would like to thank you and the staff for everything over the past four years since – started the nursery when she had just turned 1 years old. She has become a confident, outgoing and friendly character who will miss her friends and her teachers very much. She has had a wonderful time and had wonderful care from all the staff and I could not recommend Truly Scrumptious Nursery enough. Im sure you will be hearing from us again if we have another little one in the future.
I feel that – has come on leaps and bounds since going to this nursery. She has started to speak abit more and she loves going to the nursery and has made so many friends and become very close with her casworkers that she talks about them all the time.
The care and after care has surpassed all expectations and we would like to praise to all staff including Trisha for the care from Truly Scrumptious.
Where do I start? Im devastated, its the end of an era! Firstly, a great big THANK YOU for everything. You have been there for us in more ways you know. During a particularly bad time you helped us out with no question and I will forever be grateful. Truly Scrumptious is ‘truly’ the BEST nursery. From the day I first visited, the place felt so warm and homely and it has certainly been home for us for 6 years – 6 unforgettable years. I felt so at home here I happy being in labour with Harry in the back garden with Britney bringing me a cuppa! – and – literally wouldn’t be my wonderful children as they are today without the love, patience, care, disaphire and wonderful influence of all the staff at Truly… and all of the great food (thank you suzy!) As you know, as a parent we have to make so many important decisions for our children and the best decision I ever made was to bring the children here and begin their little lives in such a great, loving place. The – may be going but I know Truly will continue to make so many more happy memories with many families…. And how lucky they are!
We will miss you millions
All our love The – xx
