Welcome to St Thomas Day Nursery

St Thomas’ Day Nursery is a small, independent, family-oriented day nursery situated in the centre of Oxford. We run on a not-for-profit basis and are managed by an elected committee of parents.

Established in September 1986, St Thomas’ is one of Oxford’s longest-established nurseries and provides full and part-day care (on an all year round basis) for 40 children aged four months up to school age.

At St Thomas’ our ethos is to provide a safe, happy family atmosphere

A fun and relaxing enviroment

A warm, caring and stimulating atmosphere for your child, including very young babies.

Engaging Education

High quality childcare from dedicated staff. Excellent communication between staff and parents that benefits the child's education.

Run by parents, for parents

Where the health, welfare, safety and security of your child are paramount.

“I cannot speak highly enough of the care my children have enjoyed at St Thomas – they have been privileged indeed.”

Our Rooms

We run two separate rooms at St Thomas Day Nursery

Although we have two separate rooms, we ensure that the children mix together at different parts of the day

Both rooms are set up accordingly to the age and stage of the children that are currently enrolled. Staff are well trained to ensure that all needs are catered for.
