Welcome to Nurture One Cowes Children’s Centre!

Our care and education service is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm and provides quality long day care and education for children from zero to six years. For you convenience, nappies and nutritious meals are supplied.

Cowes Children’s Centre is located close to town and is a state of the art building with nicely equipped rooms. The centre has four rooms. Our nursery is a lovely space, designed for infants and has a separate safe sleeping room with lullaby music and twinkle lights. Our toddler room is a lovely sized room with lots of opportunity for discovery and shares space with our resident fish. Our three year old Kinder room offers a huge room with plenty of experiences and room to explore. Our four year old Kinder room, is spaced just right for a small group to have a curriculum geared towards interest and school preparation and readiness.

We pride ourselves on offering the Early Years Learning Framework curriculum, based heavily on children’s interests – we believe children learn through interest based play. We embrace our local community and are active members.

We believe our centre is what it is, because of our partnership with the children, families, each other and the community. We respect each other and encourage continual learning and innovative input.

We find joy in every day and bring this with us to share children’s journeys as they discover who they are and the world around them. We are currently working on a veggie patch and are incorporating as many experiences as possible to bring us back to nature.

We recently made the move to the island and have been delighted with how well our little one has settled into Nurture One. She loves "her school" and is so excited to be moving into the Kinder Room next year. The educators have been so kind and attentive to our families needs.

These guys are absolutely amazing, my little ones love it so much there. We get daily updates of what the kids have been doing with photos which makes the day so much better. They're so happy and content my little man has come along so far with everything I couldn't think of anywhere better for them to be!

Cowes Nurture One is a great place and the staff are always welcoming. My children have learnt alot from going here and are always aiming for the highest possible. This is a great organization here and I recommend that people send their children here when in need of childcare or kinder.

My son has been going to this daycare since he was 7 months old now he is nearly 4 years old. The staff & management has been fantastic since day one. They also provide meals at the centre which is such a peace of mind for us working parents. Lately the centre has also introduced kindy hub app which allows you to book casual days for your kids if needed even in the middle of the night. I would highly recommend them .
