Our Nursery

Bridge Lane is a small independent day nursery that opened in 2003. The Nursery has a beautiful built for purpose building close to Battersea Park and the river Thames.

Our executive team is made up of leaders from diverse backgrounds and strengths. First there is Jane, co-owner and director, who has a passion for early years education. She has over thirty year experience of working in inner London authorities with children from 0-10 years, including children with special needs, and as an advisory teacher. Jane has two children and four grandchildren.

Then there is John,co-owner and director, who is married with two children; he is a former RAF pilot and city trader.

Together they have created an environment that brings together all the features that they would have wished for their own children and grandchildren.

Our manager Paul holds QTS (qualified teacher status) and has taught in London schools for 12 years. He is married with two children.

Our deputy manager Elena Gradinaru has an Early Years and a Professional Status (EYPS) in child care provision. She is currently married and has two young children.

Both managers have been at Bridge lane since its opening. They work closely with Jane and John in ensuring the highest standard of passion and practice throughout the nursery.
