Cavendish Lodge (52 Lewin Road) is our original premises, a beautiful double fronted villa with large front and rear gardens. When originally purchased, it was very dilapidated and unloved, but showed signs of former grandeur. It opened in early 2007 with a handful of children and quickly filled up as word spread. It’s now divided into 3 departments; Buttercups (our baby room) on the lower ground floor, Bug’s Club (our toddler room) on the upper ground, and our Cheeky Monkeys (preschoolers) on the first floor and in the garden’s Clock House.
A wide veranda overlooking the garden is a popular spot for al-fresco lunches in the summer and for messy activities when the weather is not so good. The buggy store for both nurseries is situated at the side of this building.
In April 2016, the Cavendish Lodge building were delighted to have been awarded another ‘Outstanding in all areas’ Ofsted rating.
