  • Who we are

    Supporting families who are living or working nearby

    The Old Station Nursery Houlton is a carefully planned and spacious nursery, offering a stimulating and engaging learning environment.

    Offering high-quality care for babies, toddlers, and pre-school children, the nursery is conveniently located in the heart of the Houlton community.

    Depending on their age, all children have their own ‘base’ room that is best suited to their individual needs, and carefully designed to enhance children’s development.

    Babies start in their own ground-based room, with access to plenty of learning resources and toys to play with, as well as being able to develop at their own pace within the secure playground.

    "Everyone in the nursery is caring"

    "Everyone in the nursery is caring. My daughter learned a lot since she started going to nursery. Every day she is excited to go to nursery. Plenty of toys are available to play and kids can enjoy and learn.
    Overall, I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a caring and stimulating environment for their child. The staff, facilities and overall atmosphere were all top-notch and I felt confident that any child would thrive in such a positive and supportive environment."

    "Excellent staff, very good values"

    "Excellent staff, very good values and what is the most important my son was happy. Thank you for taking care of Jacob."

    "He has developed enormously through his time at The Old Station"

    "Our son loves attending nursery, he has transitioned from babies to toddlers and this has been managed well with good communication throughout the process. He has developed enormously through his time at The Old Station and the staff are always willing to collaborate and support us in the choices we make for him and our family. Couldn't really ask for anything more."

    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.

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff 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.
