Hello and Welcome

to Christchurch Nursery, Folkestone

About us

Welcome to Christchurch Nursery, we are a Fully Registered Private Day Care Facility for children of all abilities. Since 1991 we have been looking after your little ones with care and professionalism.

Our last Ofsted report in November 2019 rated us as “Good” showing that we are the Nursery to entrust your most precious little persons; with 32 registered places for each session, we have the staff ratio and facilities to inspire your child to take those early steps towards learning and more importantly socialising and helping your child to grow into a happy confident young person ready to go to school and take their place in society. Our staff are qualified to help children with Special Needs should this be required, but to us, all children are special and we treat them all alike.

If you would like to discuss placing your child with us or would like more information, please do contact us and we would be delighted to help you.

Thank you, Jill Leigh
