Chiddingstone Nursery School CIO is a long-established charity run pre-school, operated by a board of committee members, based in a converted stable block within the grounds of Chiddingstone Castle.

We take children from 2 and a half years old to statutory school age.

We offer a relaxed, welcoming, and enriching environment which supports children’s individual desire to explore and discover as they learn and develop.

We want all our children to be happy, independent, and resilient so they can become confident communicators with caring hearts, inquisitive minds, and creative hands.

The happiness, health and wellbeing of our children are at the heart of everyday practice.

Situated in the heart of Chiddingstone, we have strong links with Chiddingstone Primary School and are regularly involved in village events.
