Where to go

Beltinge Day Nursery
Reculver C of E Primary School
Herne Bay

We are a small, independent, committee run charitable organisation based within the grounds of Reculver Primary School.

We are independent from the school, however, many of our children go on to attend at Reculver and have siblings there.

Access to the Nursery is via a separate entrance.

We have an intercom video system allowing for heightened security. Visitors must show ID and will be met at the gate escorted to the Nursery Building.

Service status


Local Offer


We support children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.

We liaise with Parents/Carers before children start to attend the setting to find out about their unique and specific requirements 

Where outside agencies such as Portage, Speech and Language Therapy services, Specialist Teaching Service, and The Children's Care Co-ordination Team are involved we meet with them alongside Parents/Carers to ensure the best possible outcomes for the child are met.
