‘Bartholomew the Lion'

A very loving little lion, he will often be found exploring the sensory area with his peers.

Welcome to D-Dee's

A Place Where 'Unique' is Valued.

Our nursery in Boughton under Blean near Faversham aims to provide children aged 0-5 years in Faversham and Canterbury, Kent areas with a stimulating environment where each child is treated as an individual. Highly qualified staff who are intuitive to children and passionate about the early years encourage our little people in all areas of their development.

Becoming part of the D-Dee's family will enable parents to be engaged in their children's learning. Working in partnership with parents is key to our ethos and we welcome your input into your child's early education.

We believe all our little ones are outstanding
Then Ofsted thought so too! We await our next inspection to see if we still are! Can we keep up with our children?

We originally registered in 1996 as a sole trader, registration number 127141 and were awarded ‘Outstanding’ in every single area from Ofsted.  Click here to see our report.

In 2020 we incorporated as a limited company and this led to us needing to re-register with Ofsted (registration number 2613841). We are still the same nursery with the same child led vision and ethos, we still believe that our children are outstanding and await our next inspection to see if we are too.


Offering the following services

Early starts and late finishes

D-Dee’s Day Nursery understand that your needs for early years care and education are as unique as your child.

We are therefore open from 0800-1800 – Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year.  We offer a range of part time sessions and full days.

Home from Home Environment

D-Dee’s Day Nursery is more than just a nursery. We are a family business and key to our service is delivery of a home from home environment where children and families feel part of our family. We are not corporate and caring for a maximum of 40 children per day enables us to tailor our service to the needs of each child. Our environment is carefully planned and our curriculum structured to ensure the individual touch is of utmost importance.

Online Feedback for Parents

We want you to be part of your child’s learning journey with us. We offer personalised hand overs at the beginning and end of each session. Additionally we use the ‘Learning Book’, an online record of your child’s time with us. Learning Book enables parents to review their child’s journey as well as interact with the nursery. Sending information between families and nursery leads to a greater understanding of early education for you and of your individual child for us. It is a huge benefit to everyone as well as a real window into their early years educational world whether you are at work or home.

Key persons

Every child deserves to be special to someone and the Keyperson Approach recognises this.

The Keyperson Approach is one of the vital principles in the Early Years Foundation Stage.  It is a reciprocal relationship between a member of staff, individual child and their family.  It provides the child with a sense of security so that they feel confident to explore their world and form further relationships.

Your child's keyperson will know each individual key child and support their sense of identity and individuality.  They will be aware of their individual and family needs, preferences and development.
