About our Ramsgate nursery

Our nursery in Ramsgate is conveniently situated on Westcliff Road near Ramsgate town centre. We have a large garden area with a climbing frame, sand and water play, planting area and road for bikes and trikes and Separate baby garden. There are four large, beautiful and bright classrooms.

Our Nursery in Ramsgate opened in 2008. It was rated “Good” in all areas by Ofsted in June 2016. The nursery and staff team are now working towards achieving Outstanding.

Children are well prepared for their next stage in learning and develop the skills they need to be ready to start school. For example, children confidently manage their personal care needs, interact well with each other and are motivated learners. (Ofsted)

The nursery is open all year round Monday to Friday and takes children from 3 month old up to 5 year olds. We offer a variety of sessions to meet your requirements.

The nursery offers funded places for 2-5 year olds subject to certain criteria.

Our nursery in Ramsgate has a baby room, two year olds room, 3 year olds room and a Pre-School room. We are lucky to have a large and exciting garden for the children to play in.

The children are always busy taking part in fun and exciting activities. The nursery also offers weekly Yoga, Dance, football and singing sessions carried out by professionals.

Polly, our Montessori Teacher, is not counted in ratio so is able to work on a one to one basis with the children along with carrying out group activities.

Staff attend regular training sessions to update and expand their knowledge. Every staff member is trained in paediatric first aid and food hygiene and they hold a childcare qualification or are working towards one.

    Charmaine Wrightson

    Nursery Manager

    I got into childcare because I enjoy seeing what the children can achieve every day, especially if they've been with us from a very young age, and knowing that I have played a part in helping them to grow and change.

    I have been working for the company for 9 years, starting as a Nursery Nurse and eventually working up to Manager at our Margate nursery, where I stayed for 5 years before moving back to Ramsgate.

    I like to work for Townsend Montessori Nurseries because I enjoy coming to work everyday and meeting the children, parents and staff.

    Polly Brown

    Deputy manager

    I have worked for Townsend Montessori Nurseries a little over four years. I began working at the Avenues Montessori after completing my degree in Early Childhood Studies, I progressed from Nursery Nurse to Senior Nursery Nurse, Deputy Supervisor, Supervisor and now Deputy Manager/Montessori Directress. Each of these roles have challenged me differently but all have been rewarding.

    I have always been passionate about working in the Early Years and find it incredibly humbling and rewarding to be a part of the children’s early development. I thoroughly enjoy working for Townsend as I feel valued and continually supported in my own personal development, I have great appreciation for the Montessori Method and how the ethos is embedded amongst the nurseries.
