‘At the inspection, staff provided a wide range of activities that covered all areas of learning. Children of all ages enjoyed their play and happily joined in activities. Young children showed a lively curiosity in the world around them and confidently explored’

Having a large number of staff caring for up to twenty five children with the maximum age limit of 5 years, allows each child’s individual needs to be met.  Key persons take care of each child’s welfare and developmental needs, observing and putting into practice next steps to support your child on to their next level.  Your child chooses his/her own key person!  We all connect differently to different people, it is this connection that your child makes which determines their key person. Key persons work individually as well as together within our three groups, these are: babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

‘The effective key-person system enables children to form close emotional bonds with adults and this helps them to develop good levels of self-confidence’

The nursery is well equipped both indoors and outdoors allowing for both fun activities and learning through play. We have large playroom linked into a baby room, which accommodates up to nine babies. The outdoor area is split into a grassy and patio area so whatever the weather we are out there! We have recently introduced our new small world room, please come and have a look.

Railway Nursery’s fees are invoiced by the hour not the session allowing parents to select the hours of care required to suit their own individual needs. For full details see the ‘Fees’ page.
