Welcome to Petham Village Nursery near Canterbury

We are a new early years education provider operating from Petham village hall, Petham, close to Canterbury in Kent.

Our rural location, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, provides a base to develop our natural, nurturing and open-ended theme. We believe that children learn best through play and exploration of their natural environment as well as through adult interactions and positive behaviour management.

As we utilise a paperless operating system we ensure a safe, simple and easy means of communication between us and our families from the very beginning. We aim to achieve a successful and positive start for all our families entering early years education.

As well as private paying sessions for all ages, we offer funded spaces for eligible 2, 3- & 4-year olds. We also accept childcare vouchers and Tax-Free childcare.

We are open 48 weeks of the year. We run a term time nursery for 38 weeks, Monday to Friday from 7.45 am-5.30pm, subject to current need. We also offer a Holiday club, for the remaining 10 weeks, 9am – 3pm, for children within Early years and up to the age of 7 years, subject to availability.
