About the employer

Daffodils expanded into Thornton Heath in 2019 with our newest nursery besides Tesco on Parchmore Road. 

The building is extensive and has been purpose built with the care and learning of children in mind. It has large spaces for children to spend their day engaging in a variety of activities. 

Each room has been set up with different areas for children's learning and play, and the staff set up different activities for the children each day.

The nursery also has an outdoor area set up for all children to enjoy and experience the outdoors throughout the year.

The location is very commuter friendly, with Thornton Heath station and bus links, both serving London and Croydon less than a 5 minute walk away.
