We have been providing quality childcare for 21 years this September in a building set back just off the historic Ramsgate Harbour. We have a large secure garden with three textured surfaces for thefull enjoyment of outdoor play for our children. We provide a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, where children will be encouraged to achieve to their full potential in all areas of development, and where nursery life will be a fun, relaxed and a positive experience.
The Orchard is magical and very, very special. It sets new standards in childcare - whether in play or learning. It is full of wonderful play areas - inside and out - and the best, brand-new playequipment. The rooms are bright, clean, colourful and airy. The mature garden is large and grassy with wide lawns, trees and flowers. There is lots of room to run and play. There is even a specially built garden for the children to grow their own flowers and vegetables.
We take great care in selecting our sitters and nannies. We carry out enhanced CRB checks, conduct face to face interviews, and insist on a minimum of two years' experience with relevantqualifications. Not everyone providing childcare services in Kent can say the same.
