    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.


We are dedicated to Creating Brighter Futures Together

''I am passionate about giving children the best start in their early education by providing them with a fun and stimulating environment. This allows them to thrive in their abilities and ensures that they have access to enriching experiences to equip them with an understanding of the world around them. The whole team and I here at Margate reflect this passion and vision within the everyday practice to ensure the ethos is thoroughly embedded throughout the nursery and that all children and families are given the best experience during their time here".
