  • Who we are

    Providing children with the best possible start in life

    Since opening in 2002, The Old Station Nursery Faringdon has become a flagship of excellent nursery care in Oxfordshire.

    The Old Station Nursery Faringdon is truly a very special place. Housed in a beautiful, listed old railway station, the nursery has three dedicated rooms, where each child is provided with the opportunity to grow and excel into a confident learner. Our team’s high-quality care and dedication is also recognised by awards such as a Millie’s Mark, demonstrating extra commitment to paediatric first aid.

    Babies join the nursery in the 0–2-year-olds room, which is a comfortable space, with plenty of age-appropriate resources such as mirrors, musical instruments, and other toys to help them play and learn. Once babies become more confident, learning becomes more structured, in preparation for moving to the next room. Babies will then progress to one of the 2–3-year-olds rooms, with a variety of learning activities. We have a strong focus on engaging children in inquisitive play, and use natural resources to foster children’s knowledge and love for the environment.
