About Us

The Railway Children Kindergarten was established by Nicola Johnson in 1998. The nursery is proud to be run by long-term and committed staff. As mothers (and now grandmothers, too), we pride ourselves on our loving and caring approach, while providing a safe and nurturing nursery environment, reassuring to parents who are leaving their toddlers for the first time. We love our jobs and form very special bonds with our children and their parents/carers.
