WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
Welcome to the Railway Nursery website! Based in the village of
Lavendon, Buckinghamshire, this popular nursery offers full day-care and
sessional care for children aged 3 months to 9 years old.
We have attendees

Olney, Yardley Hastings, Wellingborough, Wolleston and Carlton.
Each of us wants the very best for our children. The Early Years are of
vital importance as this is the time when the foundations for learning,
developing and communicating are laid. You as parents are your child's
first educators. The nursery is an extension of the loving caring
atmosphere of which you have created at home for your child. The
uniqueness of every child is nurtured and developed.
The nursery will provide a safe, healthy, stimulating and vibrant
Each child will be treated with respect and encouraged to develop and
grow in many different areas. We recognise that every child is special
and may develop at different speeds. All individual needs are taken into
account and planned for in every day activities and sessions.
The range and extent of resources and planned activities are unique and
of a very high quality. These are supported by the themes and principles
of the Early Years Foundation Stage and are inspected by Ofsted and the
Milton Keynes Early Years Team.
Every group has its own routine of which take into account all the
different areas of a child's development. Each child's development is
recorded on a regular basis and discussed with the parents when
requested. We hold two formal ‘ parents evenings’ a year where a written
report is issued outlining your child's individual skills. They also
give parents a chance to meet all the staff and other ‘mums and dads’ .
Daily diaries are kept on all children under 2 years of age, and a
weekly one is written for the over 2s. These are helpful to give
parents an insight into their child's life at nursery and to keep
communications open between busy parents and staff.
Your child's individual memories are also recorded in a picture format
on their own disk of ‘magic moments’ . Parents can view these on request
before taking them home when their child moves on to bigger things.
The nursery offers an open door policy where parents are free to ask
questions or be a part of nursery life at any time. A senior member of
staff is always available to discuss any concerns or queries of which
may arise from time to time.
The Railway Nursery thrives on the expertise of its staff and offers a
very high quality of trained professionals to care and provide for your
child's every need.
We look forward to seeing you at the nursery soon.
