What makes this nursery unique?
About this nursery
Our Faversham nursery opened in 2011 and is conveniently situated in the Eurocentre Business Park on Jubilee Way (off Whitstable Road) near Faversham town centre.
We have a large garden area with a climbing frame, sand and water play, a planting area and separate baby garden. The children are always busy taking part in fun and exciting activities. The nursery is fully air-conditioned to ensure that the children are cared for at the perfect temperature.
We also offer weekly yoga, dance, football, Musical Bumps and singing sessions, carried out by professionals.
We were rated “Good” in all areas by Ofsted in May 2018. The nursery and staff team are now working towards achieving Outstanding in all areas.
“Staff are sensitive and caring and children happily seek staff’s company in their play or if they need a reassuring cuddle. Parents comment that their children receive ‘brilliant’ care.” – Ofsted
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.
Highly qualified staff
We have a dedicated Montessori Teacher and Qualified Teacher that carries out individual and small group activities with the children. All of our staff are qualified in childcare from NVQ 2 up to Degree level and beyond.

We found the staff, the structure, the professionalism and flexibility to be outstanding.
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.
Lovely nursery and great staff members!
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.

The Faversham management team
I started my career in childcare over eight years ago as a nursery apprentice working my way up as I completed my qualifications resulting in a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education and Care. I am passionate about early childhood as the opportunities that the children have now build foundations for their future wellbeing and learning. I strongly believe in children’s exploratory play and engaging them with the outdoors as risky play from which children can promote their own independence and critical thinking.
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.
