Chiddingstone Nursery School

Based in a converted stable block within the grounds of Chiddingstone Castle, we are a long established Committee run Nursery for children aged 2 years and above.  Before our recent conversion to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (“CIO”), we have previously been awarded three successive Outstanding Ofsted ratings. 

Children enjoy a secure cobbled play area where they can experience a variety of activities including gardening, sand and water play and ride-on toys.  This area is also used for curriculum based learning.  We have a small grassed garden area to the front of the Nursery and access to the wonderful and unique grounds of the Castle.

Situated in the heart of Chiddingstone, we have strong links with Chiddingstone Primary School and are regularly involved in village events.   

Our small size means we are able to provide a cosy and caring environment enabling children to learn, develop and grow.

At Chiddingstone Nursery CIO we value every child as an individual. We are passionate about ensuring that the children remain at the heart of everything we do.   

In order to provide children with the freedom to learn, we offer a range of activities including sand and water, messy activities (painting), construction, role play, imaginative play, gardening, computer area and book corner.  Each session is carefully planned to be inviting and fun.

We aim to ensure that every child reaches their full potential in a warm, nurturing and caring environment.
