We are in the heart of Faversham located on the same site as St Mary’s Primary School and St Marys Children Centre in Orchard Place. We offer a warm, safe and caring environment for 2 – 4-year-old children, whilst striving to ensure that children are meeting their own emotional and development needs. 

Parents and children are more than welcome to our setting anytime for a ‘stay and play’ to fully experience our services. If you would like to visit us please visit our contact us page.

OFSTED: "Children are confident and motivated to explore in a welcoming and stimulating environment. Staff plan a range of activities based on children's interests and to help support the next steps in their development. Staff promote children's personal, social and emotional development effectively, they create a welcoming environment where children settle in well."

All the staff at St Marys have been absolutely amazing with my son, their hard work, passion and love goes into every session and it shows! Jenny is a fantastic manager, with the support and love from everyone who works there! I would recommend St Marys to everyone. The care and hard work they do not only for the children but support for the families to is fab! Exxx will miss you all and thank you so much for helping him grow and bringing him out of his shell. Good luck for September and thank you again for everything.
