Queen Mary's Nursery

Queen Mary’s Nursery

Queen Mary’s Nursery is situated in a beautiful Victorian building which was opened as a children’s home in 1899 and rebuilt in 1919. The nursery provides full day care for your children all year round.

Our nursery was judged by Ofsted as Good in every area in January 2019 - Read Ofsted Report

Our beautiful building has three playrooms within the main building and two playrooms for children under two years in the separate baby unit. There is also a separate sensory room. The pre-school building has two secure outdoor play areas, one for children aged 3 to 4 and one for children aged 2 to 3 years. There is a separate secure play area for children in the baby unit.

The nursery is registered for 72 children aged from 3 months to school age.

We accept children in receipt of free early years education grant funding for 15 or 30 hours.

Children are cared for by practitioners all with Early Years qualifications (or working towards them) and all have Paediatric First Aid Certificates.

During their time with us the children can make use of the extensive nursery grounds where they enjoy supervised play on climbing frames, riding bikes, cooking in the mud kitchen, exploring nature  and making dens. Inside the children enjoy a varied curriculum of exciting challenging activities and experiences, following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We operate a continuous provision, free flow play system, where children enjoy playing and exploring with a range of natural materials.

The children can stay for breakfast, lunch and tea with their friends. All our meals are freshly prepared by an award winning outside caterer.

Parents input is valued throughout the nursery and we see parent partnership as key to ensuring the best possible outcomes for the children.


We welcome visits from prospective parents and children. Please feel free to drop in and have a look around and to meet the staff and children.

If you prefer to make an appointment, you can call Debbie or Frances on 01252 324042.
