Otford nursery school Ofsted Number: EY475278: to view our latest Ofsted report click here
Otford nursery school is situated in the grounds of Otford Primary School. We are a teaching nursery, with children learning through play and fun activities. The nursery has an enclosed garden/play area and a covered area so the children can access the garden in all weathers.
Otford Nursery School takes children from two to five years of age. We believe that a close working relationship with parents and carers is fundamental to the education of children. Small children will often feel very insecure when leaving parents for the first time. At the nursery we are very aware of this and we will work together with you to find a strategy that works for your child.
