At Canterbury Day Nursery and Preschool, we have a light and spacious nursery, which provides an exciting, engaging, and friendly environment for children to develop to their full potential.
We have three spacious gardens for children to play and explore with water features, chalk and painting boards, low-level tree houses, cycle tracks and our very own gardening club. Spring Lane has a flexible settling in process that adapts to suit the individual needs of each family and we believe in good partnership with parents. Your child will have a key person who will nurture strong bonds, provide special attention and work with you to deliver the care you want for your child. We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (Government Framework) to promote and support Education, care and development in the early years.
Each room is filled with age-appropriate resources and equipment such as the state-of-the-art interactive whiteboard and touchscreen computer in the pre-school room. Nursery and Pre-School offer Daily 'Boogie Mites' sessions, which supports learning letters and sounds through music and movement. Babies and Toddlers enjoy sensory and heuristic play sessions in our beautiful community room. Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food is sourced from trusted suppliers and all our food is prepared and cooked by our very own chef with menus changing seasonally. Our kitchen holds a 5*EHO rating for food and hygiene.
Canterbury Day Nursery & Preschool is all inclusive for 0-2 years, now providing nappies, wipes, cream and milk.
