The Charlbury Railway Children Nursery opened in Oxfordshire in September 2004. A family run nursery offering a warm, friendly, loving environment, our aim has always been to provide a stimulating, secure and friendly environment for you to leave your children with confidence.

We endeavour to keep your child happy and relaxed while they are with us so they can learn and develop. Based in Oxfordshire, we provide high quality, affordable childcare and offer a service that promotes equality and values diversity.


We maintain the ratio of adults to children set by the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which are: one adult to three children under two years, one adult to four children under three years, and one adult to eight children aged between 3 and 11 years.

This helps us to:

  • Give time and attention to each child
  • Talk with the children about their interests and activities
  • Help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide
  • Enable the children to explore and be adventurous in safety

We have an experienced and skilled team of staff. They are committed to gaining qualifications and regularly undertake further training in early years care and education. In this way we can constantly improve the care we provide and stay up to date with current thinking. All our staff are checked by the DBS and are qualified first aiders. We have policies and procedures which our staff follow to help us provide a quality service. Our staff are dedicated to working in partnership with you as parents.

What our parents say

  • "I just wanted to thank you for giving my son a lovely time at nursery since he started with you. You have given him such a great start in his early years and we are really grateful to you. He is well prepared to continue into his next stage at school and has adapted well and is enjoying school so far. He has lots of happy memories with you all and talks about being at nursery a lot."
  • "Thank you so much for all the help you have given us with our son. The way in which you and the nursery have dealt with his diagnosis, development and care has been great and always inclusive. You all need to know what a beacon of excellence you have been for us – which we would have driven miles if needed – but was here on our doorstep! Thank you for always making us and our son feel welcome and never a burden."
  • "Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the kindness, patience and care you show my son. He is so happy at nursery and smiles lots! Jodie, Shauni, Caitlin and Terrie, and all the baby room ladies are brilliant with him and it feels like we are a team, which is wonderful to a parent leaving their precious bundle in someone else’s hands. Thank you so much for making his first 3 months with you such a pleasure."
  • "Thank you so much for all of the care, fun and experiences you have given our child over the last two years, and for making nursery a wonderful experience for the family. She will miss you all."
