Railway Children Nursery opened in 2006. We cater for children aged from 3 months to 5 years. We very much believe Our Nursery is a family and strive to provide a home from home life; ensuring children receive outstanding quality childcare. Our children feel secure to form friendships with each other and their carers whilst being equipped for their future.
Railway Children is OFSTED registered and inspected in line with the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) setting the standards for Learning, Development and Care for Children from Birth to Five. We also work closely with our Local Education Authority Setting Improvement Team.
The Nursery building is spacious and light. It is a two storey building and compromises two main rooms downstairs and three rooms upstairs, providing the environment and the equipment to meet the needs of children of all ages. Each of our rooms has different activity areas and are themed around the learning areas supported by the EYFS to stimulate, to encourage and maximizing potential in every child.
Our Creative Room downstairs includes a Role Play area which has in the past included a Supermarket, Café and Pirate Island. Children also have regular access to Sand and Water play.
We also have a lovely outdoor soft safety surfaced area with playhouse, climbing frames and outdoor equipment. Children spend lots of time outside in all weathers, to enjoy playing with their friends and experience a variety of activities.
With our children we use many of the community facilities including regular trips to the train station, library and parks.
The safety and security of your child is always of the upmost importance here at Railway Children. We have locked and coded entrance and inner doors, and always a Senior designated member of staff signing children in and out of our Nursery.
