Dear Parents,

Welcome to Ickle Pickles Day Nursery and Pre-school. We are located in Iwade Village, very close to the town of Sittingbourne.

We realise that looking after the most precious people in your lives is both an honour and a responsibility, and we aim to make our nursery a warm, nurturing environment in which your child can grow and develop.

We understand how difficult it is choosing a nursery for your child to attend. As you discover more about us, you will see many reasons why we believe Ickle Pickles is the right choice for you and your child.  We really are proud of what we have to offer and take pride in every aspect of our nursery care.

We hope you are impressed.

Grace Gibson
Nursery Manager
