The Butterfly Patch Croydon, Shirley 


Welcome to our nursery in Croydon! Our nursery is based in Norman House, Shirley. Here we pride ourselves on individuality. We are unique from our other nursery locations and are a welcoming family.


We encourage learning and play by allowing our little ones to free-flow between indoors and out, as well as self-selecting toys and activities.

We are getting certified in the Curiosity Approach!

The curiosity approach offers your little ones fantastic sensory and learning opportunities to learn through real-life, natural, holistic objects and thingamajigs! At The Butterfly Patch Nurseries, we have taken this approach and added our own flavour to the spaces we have too.


We offer...


We are able to offer childcare 51 weeks of the year and government funding (9 month, 2 year old & 3-4 years).


Glittering Glow Bugs for children aged 3 months to 2 years

Creative Caterpillars for children 2 to 3 years
Bouncing Butterflies for children for our Pre-school


The Snug: our sensory room for all our children to experience


All are delivered under the EYFS framework and inspected by OFSTED.

There are also extra activities provided by us and external providers such as music classes, hairdressers, baby massage, and many many more. 


Healthy Early Years London

The Butterfly Patch is proud to be taking part in Healthy Early Years London (HEYL). It is an awards scheme funded by the Mayor of London which supports and recognises achievements in child health, wellbeing and development in early years settings.


HEYL will help to reduce health inequalities by supporting a healthy start to life across themes that include healthy eating, oral and physical health and early cognitive development.
