What families have to say

Our son is so happy at St Giles! The staff and management really support our decisions and choices as parents and it’s lovely to know he’s somewhere he loves and is flourishing. We’re so happy we chose St Giles.

St. Giles

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.


Very lively place to be with lots of activities for children. My son loves the nursery, his behaviour and speech have improved a lot since he started. Staff are friendly and very dedicated to every child!


My toddler has been attending the nursery and he absolutely loves it. His key workers are so warm and lovely and I’ve felt confident leaving him there knowing that he’s going to have a fun day and be happy and stimulated by the end of it.

Chestnut Avenue

Chestnut is a lovely nursery, staff are attentive and create very close bonds with the children. I also like the fact the space is open plan, free play is encouraged as well as organised activities and the children of all ages mix. The large garden is also a bonus.


Amazing nursery! My little boy has been going here for about a month and he has settled in so quickly! He loves being there, as there is so much to do! The staff are incredible, they go above and beyond. I would recommend this nursery to everyone

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.
