About Us

Townsend Montessori Nursery Maidstone is a nurturing setting, developing capable learners and communicators. The nursery provides full time and part time care for children aged 0-5 years.

We encourage the children to explore and learn by encouraging the children to do things by themselves and to make their own choices; helping them to become confident and inquisitive learners. The nursery has been carefully designed with children in mind, complete with five engaging and spacious rooms, enabling free flow throughout.

The baby and toddlers’ room has a cosy space with a dedicated garden accessible from the room. For children aged just over one, there is a sensory area, quiet book corner and construction area. There is also a large space to explore and learn with messy play, as well as arts and craft activities. The children have the opportunity to free flow into their own garden throughout the day, enabling them to continue their learning in a new environment.

The Pre-School consists of two large rooms full of resources and age-appropriate activities; with our Montessori Teacher and Qualified teacher working between both rooms, either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. The Montessori approach to teaching is based upon hands-on learning and collaborative play. We give children the opportunity to make creative choices with what they want to learn, and the Montessori teacher will observe what they do and how they do it.

Outside, we have paid thoughtful attention to creating an environment that enables the children to develop relationships with the world around them. These areas include a climbing frame, sand and water play, and a Maths hut for Pre-school. All of the children have access to the large garden and forest class during the day, where the children can learn about nature and use the mud kitchen.

We are open from 7:30am - 6:30pm Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year (we are closed at Christmas and on bank holidays).
