  • Who we are

    Situated in Herne Bay, the nursery prides itself on its outdoor space and its Montessori approach to learning

    Encouraging children to become independent, confident and curious learners.

    Townsend Montessori Herne Bay is in the sea-side town of Herne Bay, making it the perfect location for families who live locally or in the nearby towns of Canterbury and Whitstable.

    Inside, the nursery has two large, spacious rooms. The baby’s and younger children’s room is well equipped with a calm and cosy space; as well as a space full of engaging resources and activities, encouraging the children to explore and be curious. They have their own dedicated garden to use throughout the day.

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself..

    Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Contact us for more information


    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.


Committed to providing a great earning experience for your child

“Childcare has been my passion from a young age, ensuring each child reaches their goal and strives to do their very best with the guidance of a strong and loving team, supported in a rich and exciting environment created by us. I work closely with all that are involved with the children's day-to-day care, from parents and carers to professional involvement, enabling the very best in life for each individual child who joins our nursery family.''
