Prospective Parents Information


It is our intention to make Chiddingstone Nursery CIO accessible to children and families from all sections of the local and surrounding community.

We accept children from the age of two years and over.  Our waiting list is arranged in order of enrolling, but priority is given to children residing within the civil parish boundary. We also give preference to children already over the age of two and a half years, if places are available.

Children under the age of two years on our waiting list are allocated sessions as they become available, following their second birthday.

Our Nursery


We are currently accepting applications for children wishing to join us from September 2020 onwards. At present, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer physical visits of the Nursery but we are exploring ways to offer virtual visits. We will also shortly be publishing Frequently Asked Questions which we hope you will find useful. We would still love to hear from you, so if you have any questions, please do contact us.

Under normal circumstances, Chiddingstone Nursery CIO operates an open door policy when we encourage and welcome visits from prospective families.
