At Claytons Nursery we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. 

We provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment where children feel able to explore their surroundings both inside and outside in our extensive grounds.

Our aims at the Nursery are:

  • To ensure that every child is happy, safe and secure.
  • To encourage children to learn through play and first hand experiences.
  • To ensure that they have fun through a wide range of activities such as role play, art, singing, stories and rhymes.
  • To provide a broad and balanced curriculum inspired by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the children’s own interests and needs.
  • To create a positive partnership with parents and carers that enables a smooth transition from home to Nursery.
  • To work alongside the Reception teachers to ensure continuity and a smooth transition into school.

We offer places to children from Bourne End and the surrounding areas in the form of either a morning (8.50-11.50) or afternoon session (12.20-3.20) where the government funded 15 hours can be used.  We also offer extended provision for those that require a whole day (8.50-3.20).  Explorers sessions allow you to pay for additional hours in either the morning or afternoon session.  This has proved very popular by children and parents.
We also boast a very successful lunch club for an additional cost.  The lunch club provides a home from home setting and run by our qualified nursery staff.  Lunch Club promotes healthy eating, routines and manners and a social atmosphere.
