What families have to say

Very happy with Chestnut Nursery Schools @ Markyate Road. My daughter is happy and enthusiastic about each day. She has great relationships with staff. Overall, very pleased with the nursery.


My kids went to this nursery for around 2 years as a full time nursery going kids and to attend after school clubs. Both enjoyed their stay and loved their staff and formed special bonds with the key workers in the nursery. Overall a pleasant and nurturing place for the kids.


Our son absolutely loves nursery - he can’t wait to get in the door each morning! The staff are wonderful with him and keep us updated through the app which is super helpful and lovely to see. He has come such a long way in his development since starting nursery.


This nursery is amazing. Our little boy has been going here since he was 4 months old and has received the highest standard of care that we could have hoped for. He attends 3 times a week and always leaves nursery happy after having a fun day.

Norwich Research Park

This nursery is a happy, fun and safe environment where children are learning every day in a fun way. The staff are lovely and polite and care for the children well, they also make sure you know how your child has been and also what they have eaten that day.

Learn more about our Chestnut story

Chestnut Nursery Schools Ltd. was set up in August 2002 by Steven Davies and David Saunders. David was a Deputy Head Teacher for many years and Steven was a College Lecturer. They opened their first nursery in a large Victorian house in Newham, on Chestnut Avenue, and that is where Chestnut Nursery Schools Ltd. began.

David and Steven's vision was to always provide the highest quality childcare and education in a safe and secure environment that inspires young minds. All nurseries are delivering the vision that started in 2002.
