Nursery at Canterbury College

Our Nursery is based on the Canterbury College campus and caters for all children from the ages of 3 months to 5 years.

To help your child develop and grow, they will spend some time amongst children of different ages, as well as having 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. We are open 50 weeks of the year (closed for two weeks at Christmas).

Our staff will provide your child 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 from 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. Please find out more on the Ofsted website.
