Welcome to Child First Nursery Banbury

Our Nursery

Child First Nursery Banbury is a private day care nursery situated in two of the most historic buildings in the heart of the town, and overlooking the famous Banbury Cross. The Nursery is conveniently located for both local residents and commuters alike, and our town centre location means we are able to take part in numerous local visits with the children.

Being at the heart of our community is really important to the nursery. Once a month we facilitate a Forest School near the children’s play area for our two – five year olds at People’s Park. Every other Thursday, we also love to visit the local care home – Highmarket House, meeting all the residents and having fun.

Registered

We adhere to our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register. This monitors the overall quality standards of the early year’s provision in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.

Happy parents

“The caring attitude of the staff and the happiness of the children would be obvious to anyone spending some time there. There is a feeling of a well organised and committed workforce who have the well being of the children in their care at its heart.”

“My boys love coming to this nursery so much. Their development has come on leaps and bounds. So many different activities for them, each day is different. I love listening to them telling me about their day when I pick them up. The staff are so friendly and caring too, my boys adore them and talk about them all the time.”

“My child absolutely loves attending Child First Banbury. He’s always doing something different and trying new things. He loves messy play and all the staff are really friendly, and I feel they really do know the children one to one. The food is amazing too, home-cooked and my child really loves it! Thank you to all.”
