Choochoos Open Day

Thank you to all the families that attended

The sun shone as Choochoos Day Nursery in Crabble, Dover was officially opened by The Right Worshipful the Town Mayor of Dover on Friday. Many families came to watch the Mayor cut the ribbon and to enrole at the Nursery. The Mayor spent the afternoon playing and interacting with the children both inside and out, particularly enjoying our Bunny World and ‘Bug hotel’. During her ‘Opening speech’ the Mayor praised the nursery and stated how impressed she was with both the environment, friendly staff and resources we had to offer. Parents also expressed how please and impressed they were with the nursery. The manager Marie Christian explained ‘one parent was very tearful that she had finally found the right nursery for her child.’ 

Places at the nursery are filling fast as many families chose to join us. Choochoos offer free places each week for children aged 3 and 4 and for children aged two that meet the government criteria. To have a show around contact Marie 01304 822592 or email dover@choochoos.co.uk. Our Prospectus and an application form can be accessed on the website www.choochoos.co.uk
