curriculumAbove all, our aim at The Railway Nursery is to provide outstanding care and learning opportunities for all children who attend. We pride ourselves on ensuring our children reach their full potential in a fun and engaging way!

We understand that each child is unique and ensure that planning is tailored to meet each child’s needs. We plan a range of adult-led and child-initiated play, supported by a variety of stimulating resources.

Ofsted commented that “Children embrace their time at nursery with excitement and enthusiasm. A stimulating and high-quality environment provides children and babies with superb opportunities to explore and learn. Staff meet the unique needs of each child. Their interaction with children is inspirational.”

Ongoing assessment enables our skilled staff to support development of each child across the seven areas of learning (Early Years Foundation Stage). For further information on the EYFS please click

We strongly believe in children learning in an outdoor environment and we have created a separate baby sensory garden in addition to the large outdoor area for the toddlers and pre-school children.

Overall, we aim for children to; enjoy learning, gain confidence and progress well in preparation for school.

Our unique selling point would have to be our owner and management team. Both owners are on-site on a daily basis alongside our full time Manager and Deputy Manager which enables parents, staff and children to approach us with ideas, feedback and queries. We are a family run, home-from-home nursery with exceptionally high standards and vision, providing care for children throughout the year, only closing on bank holidays.
