At The Farningham Day Nursery we recognise the huge importance that parents attach to choosing the best possible care for their children.

You want to know that your child will be well looked after in a happy and secure environment and that he or she will receive only the best care and attention when not at home.

We pride ourselves on providing exactly those high standards that you require and we believe that we are able to achieve them by succeeding in two vital areas; Employing first class carers to care for your child; Providing the best possible facilities for your child within a small & friendly environment.
