Our Nursery

At The Old Rectory Nursery School, we provide a warm, caring and homely environment that enables your children to flourish into young adults; that are well prepared for their futures. We do this by stimulating the children with a wide range of activities which are both indoors and outdoors. As children are naturally curious they are encouraged to learn through play. A simple activity such as sand play can teach children about mark making, sharing, texture, measuring, prepositions building and help to develop cognitive skills to name a few. We are continuously striving to provide and improve our quality of service to parents and children alike.

The nursery aims to ensure the children feel safe, secure, loved and parents are reassured that our responsibilities are paramount whilst they entrust their children in our care.

We are located in Cranford/ Hounslow and operate from a grade two listed building which has been in operation since 1997.

We have three departments in the Nursery the Under 2's, 2-3's and 3-5's. There are six group rooms which are located over two floors. The children do however spend time together and often join up for activities and move around the different classes. This means that children beome familiar with all staff and helps us to create a more homely environment for them to thrive in. Children have access to a resource room, dining room, a large and secure outdoor area with two of the group rooms opening out onto patio areas.

We serve a variety of different social and cultural backgrounds. Around eighteen members of staff work with the children, all of whom have Early Years qualifications. They attend ongoing training to ensure their skills; abilities and knowledge are up to date. We also employ a chef. The nursery kitchen facilities are 5 stars rated and all meals are nutritious and cooked freshly on site.

Our team have a wealth of experience and speak many different languages; they provide a range of activities to encourage the children to learn through play and to build on their own individual skills.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management and all the staff at The Old Rectory Nursery School for all the support and love that they have given Trishul.

He attended a nursery prior to The Old Rectory for two years but has learnt so much more in the 9 months that he has been here. His pencil control is brilliant and has also started word building with his co workers. I am always given feedback both good and bad allowing me to have an accurate picture of his day.

My son loves it at the nursery and settled in very quickly thanks to the wonderful staff. Excellent child care at very reasonable costs in comparison to other local nurseries. Would highly recommend to family and friends.

My son started here in August 2011, just before his second birthday. I can't recommend them highly enough - he blossomed from a shy, quiet baby to a lovely confident little boy in the time he went there. We can't thank the girls at TORNS enough for all their help. :)
