Little Oaks Canterbury is a children’s day nursery situated in the grounds of Kent and Canterbury Hospital. We provide quality child care for children aged from two months to eleven years.
The nursery provides 5 spacious rooms for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years and all rooms contain age appropriate equipment to provide a range of learning opportunities for all age groups encouraging them to explore, investigate and learn. The rooms are bright and spacious, and each room has their individual key persons who provide a safe and stimulating environment.
The key persons follow the EYFS creating online Learning Journals for each child to ensure their individual needs are being met and their development is being tracked. The children also enjoy free flowing into our outdoor garden area, all of which are age appropriate. Our outdoor garden provide resources for all age groups giving the children an opportunity to explore outdoors as well as indoors.
