Goldington Community Nursery welcomes children aged 6 months to 5 years and is situated in the heart of the community. The setting is privileged to have access to a large outdoor space and is growing in popularity. Ofsted has recently rated the nursery as ‘good’ and we have exciting plans on how we will achieve ‘Outstanding’ at the next inspection. There is a diverse population accessing the nursery which adds to the challenge and excitement of what we believe in as a Charity; that every child has the right to the best possible start in life regardless of background, culture or religion.
