Our Nurseries

Cavendish Lodge and Dove House, are consistently rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we pride ourselves on creating a lovely community for local families.

Cavendish Lodge

Cavendish Lodge (52 Lewin Road) is our original premises, a beautiful double fronted villa with large front and rear gardens. When originally purchased, it was very dilapidated and unloved, but showed signs of former grandeur. It opened in early 2007 with a handful of children and quickly filled up as word spread. It’s now divided into 3 departments; Buttercups (our baby room) on the lower ground floor, Bug’s Club (our toddler room) on the upper ground, and our Cheeky Monkeys (preschoolers) on the first floor and in the garden’s Clock House.

A wide veranda overlooking the garden is a popular spot for al-fresco lunches in the summer and for messy activities when the weather is not so good. The buggy store for both nurseries is situated at the side of this building.

In April 2016, the Cavendish Lodge building were delighted to have been awarded another ‘Outstanding in all areas’ Ofsted rating.

Dove House

Dove House

Dove House is our second site which opened its doors in September 2010. Originally 2 tall houses, it was a major construction job to take out the dividing wall between them, fit a grand staircase and open up lots more space. Robins (our baby room) and Swallows (our toddler room) take up most of the ground floor and Eagles (our preschoolers) are on the middle floor. Dove House has also got a wonderful and very popular indoor sandpit. 

In it’s most recent Ofsted Inspection in April 2015, it was also awarded the top ‘Outstanding in all areas’ grading.

The main administrative office for CLNS is on this site.

Somers House

Somers House in Reigate is our third nursery which will open its doors during early 2020. The nursery will offer our exceptional childcare services with the same values, high standards and attention to detail as Cavendish Lodge and Dove House.

 

This new nursery setting will be completed at the end of 2019, with staff training and recruitment from September 2019. The nursery will be offering childcare for babies from 6 months, toddlers and pre-schoolers up to 5 years.

 

To find out more, please go to our Somers House page.

We have 3 departments in each nursery for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Babies

Our babies are looked after with lots of love and care – even before they start, enjoying three taster sessions to help them get used to new surroundings. With a staff ratio of 1: 3 there are always lots of people on hand to play, help or give a cuddle.
