All about Shorncliffe Nursery, Childcare For Children From 2-5 Years

All About Us

Shorncliffe Nursery was first established for the local Gurkha community, now we run alongside the army to offer childcare to service families & the local community. We employ staff to cater for both nationalities and languages in the Nursery. The nursery is very proud to be involved and maintaining partnerships with the local community around us, we have many nationalities with us now.

The nursery has two very big nursery rooms which both lead into a soft play area. The nursery also benefits from another large grassed garden, equipped with an undercover mud kitchen and a range of large wooden apparatus. We also have a smaller room called the quiet room for smaller activities, parents meetings and outside agency visits.

At Shorncliffe Nursery we will work in the partnership with every family to provide the highest quality childcare in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. We have children from the age of two years old till they leave to go to school.

The Local Community

The nursery plays an active role in the local community. Each month the nursery visits the Marigold centre at AGE UK in Cheriton. The children spend quality time each month completing lovely activities together. The nursery also enjoys visits to the local shops, post office, the Library and park. We have had special trips to the fruit and vegetable warehouse and also the construction site nearby. Some of the older children also visit Cheriton primary school in July each year, to help them feel comfortable with their school transitions. All outings are completed with prior written consent from every child’s parents.

Getting To Know You

We offer families home visits before their children start. We call these “getting to know you visits” as we are in your home solely to talk and meet your child and their parent/carers. It’s a good opportunity to see how each child is in a place they feel safe and secure. Talk about any concerns or questions you may have. The nursery also offers free play visits before your child starts to help them feel comfortable and happy before they join us.

The nursery has a parent’s board situated in the main corridor where all events are displayed, also a white board for each nursery room, explaining the rooms daily events.

All our staff are qualified, DBS checked, paediatric first aid trained, amongst safeguarding and other relevant childcare training. To be able to deliver the best care for each child.

The nursery polices are located next to the main door in the hallway for your convenience. Alternatively please ask a member of staff.
