Our nursery is located on the grounds of Maidstone hospital, providing inclusive childcare for NHS and non NHS parents. We can cater for up to 112 children per day with ages ranging from 3 months until they are ready to embark on their next journey of starting school.
Our rooms are inviting with lots of natural light which really compliments the feel of the nursery. All base rooms have access to a large garden that is divided with low level fences for each of the base room, which is lovely as children can see each over from differing age groups. The gardens are secure and surrounded by lots of trees and shrubbery.
We are very lucky to have a foundation classroom to help prepare our pre school children on their transition to school. The foundation classroom is based across two large rooms and we use the Provocation approach to enhance the children's learning giving them the opportunity to explore
