Here at Maidstone hospital we pride ourselves on the dedication and care that we offer to each individual child. We work closely with Families ensuring children are happy and supported within their development and are given the opportunity to fully flourish to their full potential.
In our Pre-School Room we have ‘Sporty Tots’ on a Tuesday where the children get involved in a range of different sports. On a Thursday we have French Lessons which the children thoroughly enjoy.
We have Wake and Shake initiative within our toddler and Pre-school room which helps to wake your little one up and prepare them for the fun, busy day ahead!
In our under 1 year old room we have Busy Babies which is our new initiative; there are black and white areas to help stimulate the babies brains and a Lilac and Violet area used for a place of relaxation and tranquil space.
Each age group have their own free-flow access into the garden where exciting activities are planned.
Busy Bees won a Silver Award for the ‘Food For Life Catering Service’, please ask to have a look at our exciting and nourishing menus.
We take babies from 3 months old to 5 years of age. Here at Maidstone we offer families extended opening hours between 6.45am-7pm to fit in with your busy schedules. We have our own car park for drop off and collection.
Please come and visit us!
The staff really know the children well and feels like they are their own little people there not just children being looked after
My son has developed greatly since he started at the nursery a year ago â€“ he can now walk and I believe this has been aided by the staffs encouragement and being around other children his own age
Very good personal care towards my son helping to develop his confidence in fitting in with staff and children since only recently moved to the area, much praise to staff and keyworker
The timings are brilliant the early drop off is a God send
They have made it so easy for us both to work full time in the knowledge that she is safe and happy.
