Canterbury College Nursery


Our Nursery is based on the Canterbury College campus and caters for all children from the ages of 2 to 5. It's open 50 weeks of the year (and is closed for two weeks at Christmas).

To help your child develop and grow, they will spend some time amongst children of different ages but will also have a learning area specifically for their age group. All children regularly meet for free play (both inside and outdoors) where they can care, share and learn from their peers.

Our staff will provide them with many stimulating and challenging activities. All staff are experienced and qualified in childcare and have enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB checks).

Our baby room is open for babies three months to two years. For any enquiries please contact us using the details at the bottom of the page.


Canterbury College Nursery has received its Ofsted report. Read our news article to find out more about Ofsted's visit.
