Asquith Maidstone Day Nursery & Pre-School

Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Maidstone children's day nursery & pre-school is set amongst beautiful mature trees, and sheep can often be spotted in the fields by the nursery.

We have an amazing new adventure garden with its own Ark climbing frame, hobbit house, wobbly road and sensory area.

In total, we have three gardens: one for the babies and two larger spaces for the under and over three. Our gardens have a natural feel where children can experience first-hand grass, mud, bugs and even grow their own vegetables.

Our happy, friendly nursery is rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. We’re based in a purpose-built setting that was refurbished in 2011. The nursery is situated in the catchment areas of Loose Infant School and Tiger Primary School.

Choosing a nursery is a very important decision and it's crucial that you make the right choice for your child. The nursery complies with the Early Years Foundation Stage and our priority is meeting your child's individual needs and making sure they are well cared-for.

The nursery has a friendly atmosphere and is both fun for the children and reassuring for parents. Along with our eight weeks of free settling in, we also conduct home visits. This approach means we always see parents returning with little brothers and sisters.

We will be delighted to welcome you to Maidstone day nursery & pre-school. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!
