Broadstairs Children's Nursery
The nursery is situated within 17 acres of private woodland. We have our own farm, Forest Class, door to the beach, and a custom designed playground.
3 months - 5 years
Our nursery in Broadstairs opened in 2005 and is located near the North Foreland Golf Course. The nursery is adjacent to an old people’s home and the children love visiting the elderly residents, singing songs and playing games together.
The nursery was graded Good in all areas by Ofsted in August 2015.
Children are enthusiastic and eager to learn. As a result they are making good progress in all areas of learning in readiness for school. (Ofsted)
Jennie and her staff team are now aiming to achieve Outstanding at the next inspection.
Our Forest Class in Broadstairs is a new addition to the nursery. Children love learning and exploring outdoors and our Forest Class creates a fun and exciting environment for them to learn about nature and start to use basic tools in a safe and controlled way.
The Broadstairs nursery offers free places for 2- 5 year olds subject to certain criteria. The nursery is open Monday to Friday 7.30am – 6pm all year round. We offer a variety of sessions to meet your requirements.

The nursery opens out very close to the beach, which is great in warmer weather!

Our beautiful baby room is located upstairs in a bright and airy room. Very young babies are cared for in a separate room which has been carefully designed to be a stimulating home from home environment.

Babies are taken out to explore the grounds or play in the separate baby garden twice a day.

Both of my children attend Port Regis and they love it. My youngest loves seeing the animals on his way in. My eldest is always telling me about the fun things she has been up to. Thanks to all the great staff!
My daughter had her first full session today at Port Regis. Although she doesn't like us leaving her, the staff are great with her and settling her. They are all so friendly! They have given us plenty of information and I am sure she will have plenty of fun learning and growing in this lovely nursery.
My son goes to Port Regis and absolutely loves it. The staff are wonderful and my son has always been happy to attend each day. I will happily send my younger child when he is old enough. The grounds are beautiful too, plenty of space for walks and my son also loves the animals they have on site.
I have two grown up daughters and will soon be a nanny. As my children grew older, I missed the young age so I felt working in a nursery would enable me to help other children grow, develop and support families. This is the part of the job i love.
I have been with Townsend Montessori for 11 years since starting as an unqualified member. I have worked with all age ranges and am now working towards my Level 5 in Management.
I have been working for the company for 9 years and have worked in 3 of the company nurseries. I started as a nursery assistant and then gained my Level 3 NVQ to become a nursery nurse. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to train as a Montessori Directness and then progress to Deputy Manger.
I decided to go into childcare when my daughter went from nursery to school. I enjoyed watching her grow and develop so much during pre-school years that i wanted to be part of this for my career.
I enjoy working for TM Nurseries and getting to know all the children and their families. It's lovely to watch the children grow, develop and transition to school with confidence of new skills and independence.
I have worked for Townsend Montesssori for almost 10 years now and during that time I have worked at The Grange in Ramsgate where I progressed from nursery nurse to deputy supervisor to room supervisor. I moved to Port Regis in Broadstairs a year ago where I joined the Ladybirds room as room supervisor and I have recently taken on the role of deputy manager. I am very excited to start this new opportunity.
I enjoy working with children in the nursery setting as I enjoy watching the children the grow and progress through the years to become independent and confident.
