Faversham Children's Nursery
Our nursery in Faversham has four large, beautiful and bright classrooms all on the ground floor and a large and exciting garden for the children to play in.
3 months - 5 years
Our nursery in Faversham opened in 2011 and is conveniently situated in the Eurocentre Business Park on Jubilee Way (off Whitstable Road) near Faversham town centre.
It was rated “Good” in all areas by Ofsted, with Outstanding elements, in June 2015. The nursery and staff team are now working towards achieving Outstanding in all areas.
The nursery is open all year round Monday to Friday and takes children from 3 months up to 5 years. We offer a variety of sessions to meet your requirements, and funded places are available for 2–5 year olds subject to certain criteria.
The nursery has a Babies Room, Toddlers Room, Twos Room and a Pre-school Room. We have a large garden area with a climbing frame, sand and water play, a planting area and separate baby garden. There are four large, beautiful and bright classrooms all on the ground floor. The nursery is fully air-conditioned to ensure that the children are cared for at the perfect temperature.
The children are always busy taking part in fun and exciting activities. The nursery also offers weekly yoga, dance, football and Musical Bumps and singing sessions carried out by professionals.
Shannon, our Montessori teacher, carries out fun activities with the children in our Montessori area, which forms part of the Pre-school Room. Shannon is not counted in ratio, so is therefore able to dedicate more one-to-one time with the children to support them with their learning.
Our nursery in Faversham has a large and very highly qualified staff team. All members of the team are trained in paediatric first aid and regularly attend training sessions to expand and develop their knowledge in childcare.
Children love playing in our large and exciting garden, with separate baby area.
We have a parent pick-up and drop-off area in front of the nursery for your convenience.
Age range: 3 months–18 months

As a parent who works abroad, I was really nervous about putting my daughter into nursery, but the Faversham team have been beyond outstanding and I feel like my daughter is in the safest hands with them. I am so grateful.
My daughter loves going to nursery. Even at the weekend when we ask what she wants to do she says go to nursery! I am so lucky to have found somewhere she loves and also somewhere I know she is safe and cared for. All the staff are amazing and do such an amazing job at teaching and caring for all the children.
Lovely nursery and great staff members!
We found the staff, the structure, the professionalism and flexibility to be outstanding.
Hello. My name is Freddie. I have worked for Townsend Montessori Nurseries for many years and started by doing my placement at Port Regis while I was studying at college. I became a Nursery Nurse after completing my course and have been to a few of our locations, progressing to Deputy Manager and learning as I did. I gained a wide range of experiences from working at different locations and with different families. I am trained in BSL Level 2 and have a lot of personal experience with SEN children. I decided to work in childcare as I enjoy the rewards of watching the children develop and learning about their unique personalities. I like working for Townsend Montessori Nurseries as I enjoy the natural look of all our rooms and the Montessori method.
Hi, I'm Kirsty and I have worked in childcare for seven years, five of those being at Faversham Montessori. I started as a nursery nurse and I've worked my way up to assistant manager. I have experience working with all ages and have been supervisor of two's and preschool.
I have always wanted to work in childcare and have a passion for helping children learn and develop. I enjoy working for Townsend Montessori because we have such a supportive and friendly team and we provide a range of fun activities for all the children.
