A Good Nursery in Swanscombe

Welcome to Swanscombe Day Nursery and Preschool. Our Ofsted Good nursery in Swanscombe provides the very best care and education for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Beautiful Rooms to Support Your Child

Our lovely baby unit consists of three light and airy rooms and are for children from 3 months to 2 years. There is so much to discover and explore, from arts and crafts sections to cosy reading areas. The baby unit also benefits from its own sleeping area to ensure peaceful naps.

The toddler unit has two lovely rooms and is for children aged 2 to 3.5 years. This spacious unit is designed to allow your little one to roam freely and become independent. The unit benefits from a toilet and nappy changing area to support your child with the transition from nappies to toilet training.

In preschool, children from 3 to 5 years love to practice their writing skills. The room has lots of space and exciting activities to discover and has its own toilet area.

We also have a ready for school room, where we prepare the children with the skills they need to feel confident and excited to start school.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Exploring the Garden

Your child will also love our large outdoor play area which benefits from freeflow access from every room, so no matter your child's age, they can move freely from the nursery to our sensory garden, playground or natural open space easily throughout the day.

The garden is divided into age-appropriate sections and has lots of space to explore, as well as playground equipment, trikes, and covered areas so fun can be had whatever the weather. We also have a lovely natural forest area, which is perfect for learning about nature and going on mini beast hunts.

Wrap-Around Care

To support your child outside of regular nursery hours, we also have a breakfast, after school and holiday club for children aged 3 months to 8 years, where they can participate in a range of fun activities. Please give us a call to find out more.
