About the employer

Watford nursery located in a purpose built building in the heart of Watford’s business district and a stone’s throw away from the shopping centre and Watford Junction station.

All rooms are monitored by CCTV and parents can ask to watch this from the reception area to ensure their little one has settled.

Our dedicated staff team ensure all the children in our care are kept busy by offering a range of activities every day. Our three base rooms (Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School) have been designed with lots of different areas to ensure everyone has plenty of room to play, learn, explore and have fun in. Our gardens at the front and back of the nursery are in constant use – the children love nothing more than being out in the fresh air with their friends. All children take part in weekly Gymboree and Tiny Mites music sessions and our Pre-School children also have a weekly French lesson. Regular walks around the area are enjoyed by all too.

Keeping everyone busy means we need to make sure all of the children enjoy wholesome home-cooked meals and snacks every day. Shillah our chef has been with us since the very start of Boys & Girls Nursery and has a wealth of experience making sure every dietary requirement is met!

Boys & Girls Nursery Watford is proud to have achieved a ‘Good’ OFSTED rating at our last OFSTED Inspection. We are also proud holders of the Herts Quality Standard Award – something that the team worked very hard to achieve
