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 weather.


Otford Nursery School takes children from two to five years of age. Small children will often feel very insecure when leaving you 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.
