Starting Nursery at Hythe Bay Children's Centre

Our facilities include:

Baby Room (3mths - 2yrs)

Main Nursery (2-5yrs)

Open 5 days per week, 49 weeks of the year 
between 8am and 6pm.


Little Nursery (2-5yrs)

Open 5 days per week, term time only
between 9am and 3pm.

Starting nursery is an exciting time for all the family.  We want children to feel confident, independent and have a sense of curiosity when coming to Nursery.


To develop these skills we offer a range of sensory activities and experiences, guided by the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (Early Years Curriculum).


The Nursery is very well resourced with clearly defined areas of learning within each room.  The learning activities your child encounters will be play based and built on real life experiences.  Through meaningful child initiated and adult supported practical activities, children begin to develop a conceptual understanding of the world.

Home Visits and Settling

It is important that all parents/carers and children feel happy and confident when joining us. We offer the opportunity to have a tour of the nursery and a Home Visit as part of the settling process. Before your child starts their full sessions, we arrange stay and plays and settling sessions, with up to 10 hours free settling time.

Family Key Person

Our link with Home

Each child has a very special person who will work with you to achieve your child's full potential.  


Together we build a detailed learning journal of your child's pre-school development.

Early Years Foundation Stage

Why do we have one?

The EYFS Framework exists to support all professionals providing guidance on planning the learning activities, observing and assessing what and how your child is learning and developing.


Your child's progress will be assessed and will work toward the Early Learning Goals set as the expected level to reach at age of 5.
