About our Margate nursery

Our nursery in Margate is conveniently situated on Cowper Road (off Victoria Road), near Margate town centre. We have a large garden area with a climbing frame, sand and water play, planting area and trikes. There are three large, beautiful and bright classrooms. This is our smallest nursery and has a very cosy home-from-home atmosphere.

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 for 2–5 year olds subject to certain criteria.

The nursery opened in 2012. It was rated Good in all areas by Ofsted with Outstanding elements in October 2016. The nursery and team of staff are now working towards achieving Outstanding.

All babies and children make good progress in their learning and development. They are active learners who are inquisitive and motivated to learn. (Ofsted)

The nursery has a Babies Room, Twos Room and a Pre-school Room. We are lucky to have a large and exciting garden for the children to play in. The children take part in weekly extracurricular activities carried out by professionals including yoga, dance, football and singing sessions.

Our team of staff are very well qualified and expand their knowledge by attending regular training courses. All staff are trained in paediatric first aid.

Testimonials for Margate

Management team for Margate

  • Emma Skinner - Townsend Montessori Broadstairs deputy manager

    Emma Skinner

    Nursery Manager

    I have been working for the company for nine years and have worked in three of its 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 Directress and then progress to Deputy Manager and now to Manager.

    I decided to go into childcare when my daughter went from nursery to school. I enjoyed watching her grow and develop so much during her pre-school years that I wanted to be part of this for my career.

    I enjoy working for Townsend Montessori Nurseries and getting to know all the children and their families. It's lovely to watch the children grow, develop and transition to school, confident in new skills and independence.
