Welcome to our website; we hope you enjoy finding out more about us.

ofsted-outstanding-2012-2013Chiltern Nursery & Training College has been the leading provider of early years care, education and training since 1931. Our website can only give you a taste of what we do so please come and visit to see for yourself the wonderful environment and excellent care, education and training that we provide.

Announcing our exciting news

Following a review by the Board of Trustees, it has been decided to undertake a considerable development project, including a brand new purpose-built building, bringing together centralised nursery and training facilities with modern bespoke rooms and play areas, and the development of our gardens with a focus on the ‘forest school ethos’ for outdoor play. This will offer greater flexibility, taking our nursery and training into the future and beyond. From September 2017 we will no longer be offering residential courses but will continue to provide and develop high quality early years training to meet the needs of the local and wider community, alongside our outstanding nursery provision.

The project will commence in earnest later this year with the development phase of the new building anticipated to be completed by 2020. The development will be self-funding through the sale of a block of land and property situated at the north side of the grounds. Through this visionary plan, our new purpose built nursery and early years training college will ensure that Chiltern continues to be a centre of excellence for early years care, education and training.

We are also announcing the change of our name from ‘The Chiltern College’ to ‘Chiltern Nursery & Training College’.

Chris Lawrence, Head, commented ‘We are very proud of our heritage and achievements and we pride ourselves on the quality of care, education and training that we provide. This is a really exciting time for Chiltern and we look forward to bringing to life our exciting plans to meet the needs of children, parents and early years practitioners of the future, whilst continuing with the warm, caring Chiltern ethos, for which we are so well regarded. There will be regular updates on our website (www.chilternnurserytrainingcollege.com) and I hope that people will follow our progress and be part of our exciting plans for the future.
