Welcome to Oaklands Nursery

Oaklands Nursery is a private day care nursery located in Tonbridge.  The Nursery is situated in a beautiful converted house with spacious grounds and is conveniently located for both local residents and commuters to London.

We are open full-time from 7:30am – 6:30pm, caring for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

Taking care of our staff’s wellbeing is of prime importance to us and we are proud to have been voted the 14th best place to work in the whole of the UK.

The daily curriculum and standards comply with our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register, which monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision, in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.

We are sad to say that our Nursery is temporarily closed to support the national effort to minimise the spread of COVID-19. 

We look forward to welcoming back all of our families as soon as we are able to.

Please continue to contact us and we will be in touch to deal with your enquiry.

LEARNING

Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.

SETTLING IN

Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s key person.

OUTDOORS

We offer daily opportunities for learning outdoors, giving children the freedom to explore, develop and learn.

FOOD

Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

“We, as a family, are indebted to you all – you do a fantastic job and make a real difference!”

“Words simply cannot express the appreciation I have for you all.”

“All the people in the nursery that have looked after our children daily have made us feel that our children are lovely and special to them, which is so brilliant to hear as a parent.”

“We cannot praise you enough. We wouldn’t have recommended you to family and friends otherwise.”

Above and Beyond Educational Experiences

We offer a range of unique educational experiences which enable children to become successful, lifelong learners including:

  • Wake up and shake up – an activity to energise the brain using cross-lateral movements
  • A range of bespoke activities which promote your child’s well-being and confidence, including Emotions Boxes and Chatterboxes
  • Garden Champions (RHS School Awards Levels 1, 2 & 3) – our gardening activity which is supported by the Royal Horticultural Society’s School Gardening Awards training programme.
