The Railway Children Day Nursery

The Railway Children Day Nursery is a unique childcare setting that has been established since 1992. It is located in the heart of Canley, half a mile from Tile Hill Railway Station, Cannon Park shopping complex and close to the A45.

The nursery is registered with OFSTED for thirty- six children from birth to five years of age. This includes twelve babies.

The nursery is open from 7.30am-6pm, term time only. We close for Coventry school holidays and Bank holidays

The Railway Children nursery has an excellent reputation for good quality childcare. We provide the children with a stimulating environment, together with a loving, caring and homely atmosphere. We work within the Foundation Stage Curriculum and we are registered for 2-year-old funding and 3-4 yr old funding.

The nursery has a bright, cosy baby room, a large playroom and a conservatory with a wide range of resources for the children.

We use large coach built prams in which babies sleep outside under a covered area in warmth and comfort under the supervision of the nursery staff. The children are able to access a safe outside paved play area with a large variety of wheeled toys, tyres, and drainpipes to post balls down. 

The nursery provides well-balanced meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon tea and we cater for all dietary needs. During meal times children sit at the table with staff and are encouraged to learn good table etiquette. Drinks are freely available for children throughout the day.

The Railway Children Nursery employ a Senior Manager, a Manager, a Deputy Manager and a team of qualified Nursery Nurses and Nursery Assistants including 1 apprentice. We encourage and support professional development and training of suitable apprentices.
