  • Who we are

    Located in the seaside town of Herne Bay, perfect for local families

    Following the Montessori Approach to learning, with hands-on, collaborative play, encouraging independent learners.

    Located in Herne Bay, Townsend Montessori Nursery offers an ideal setting for local families, just a short stroll away from the beach. Step inside our nursery, and you’ll find two generously-sized rooms, thoughtfully designed to create a serene and welcoming atmosphere. Equipped with a wide array of engaging resources, both rooms provide ample opportunities for children to play and learn.

    Additionally, our garden boasts a dedicated forest area that entices children to embark on natural exploration and embrace hands-on learning experiences. It is also designed with various features such as a climbing frame, sand and water play area, and a designated planting area. These elements aim to foster purposeful play and cultivate an understanding of our environment among the children.

    "I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone"

    "My little boy started here in March and it's such an amazing nursery, he is doing so well and the staff are absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone, really would, so happy and my little boy loves it, always asking if he is going to play school."

    "The staff are fantastic, kind, patient and very friendly"

    "I am extremely happy that I found Townsend Montessori Nursery, the staff are fantastic, kind, patient and very friendly. The app allows me to see what my child is up to with updates on nappy changes and what she is eating. So accommodating, they have recently been able to fit my child in for an extra few days when I needed it. My child is very happy here and with their assistance is learning so much all the time. Thank you to all the staff at Montessori Townsend."

    "There is lots of outside space"

    "My children look forward to going to nursery and are always happy at collection. There is lots of outside space and my preschooler is able to move freely between inside and outside which suits him perfectly. The room staff and managers are always welcoming and friendly and take time to share new skills and highlights from my children's days. The nursery can provide all meals and snacks which was an important factor when initially viewing nurseries."
