Who We Are
Keswick House Nursery School is a privately owned and family-run Nursery offering children a high quality education in an environment where every individual is valued for who they are and for their contributions to our strong school community.
Our Early Years curriculum nurtures children’s confidence in exploring the world around them and in their creativity. They are encouraged to adopt important values such as friendship, courage, kindness, co-operation and perseverance.
We believe every child is unique thus their individual learning pathway will be tailored to suit their own interests and lines of inquiry, ensuring a love of learning is fostered.
We aim to create a strong learning environment that will not only enhance children’s aspirations to perform to the best of their ability but will also develop the children’s personal, social and emotional skills.
“During my 27 years leading Keswick House Nursery School, I have been truly fortunate to watch so many children flourish in the Nursery environment. In such a short space of time they have the capacity to overcome their initial hesitancy and develop into confident and adventurous little learners. The children leave us brimming with confidence and ready to face new challenges. Their potential and enthusiasm never cease to amaze me. We always know when our job is finally done...
Following our successful home learning programme tailored for each child, we are delighted to share some parent testimonials that we have received since the full re-opening of Keswick House Nursery.
"Words can't express how wonderful we feel that Keswick House is for our son and I don't believe there is another Nursery that could even come close. My child is encouraged, praised, educated, understood and included ..., he is very happy so we are very happy!"
“Thank you for an amazing two years, I couldn’t ask for a better Nursery for my son. I am just amazed at how far my son has come since he joined as a shy three year old. It’s all down to the Nursery and the staff.”
“The structure and atmosphere of the school allows great preparation for primary school and there is a wide variety of creative activities that help inspire the children.”
"It is a wonderful, inspiring and protecting learning environment and we are incredibly pleased with all that you do."
"We are very happy to see the difference and improvement in our child every day."
At Keswick House Nursery Forest School, the children are at the heart of everything we do. Our Forest School curriculum follows the core of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) offering learning opportunities in a carefully sourced outdoor environment.
Hot lunches are provided by LunchMunch4Kids and are simply delicious! The children are encouraged to eat independently and to taste a range of foods. Many children ask for seconds and it is reassuring to see clean plates! Hot lunches are a huge hit.
At Keswick House Nursery, we are proud of our lovely garden. Full of games, toys and learning tools, it is a great way for our children to discover, learn and have fun in the open air.
