Why choose us?


Invest in your child. Make a significant difference to your child's future. One of the most important steps your child will ever take is through the door of their first Nursery.


TORNS has been providing high quality childcare in the Cranford/Hounslow community since 1997 thats 19 years and has a team of experienced and dedicated staff who are committed to providing high quality childcare and education.


We have the largest outdoor play area for the children and very much believe in ensuring our children take advantage of this. Staff usually take the children out for outdoor activities and fresh air in the mornings and on a regular basis for exercise.


The Nursery kitchen has been awarded the highest ranking of 5 stars for food hygiene this credit is due to the Kitchen Staff, Nursery Staff Team and Management working together to ensure we always maintain our high standards throughout the Nursery.


All Nursery Meals/ Snacks are inclusive of Nursery Fees. Fresh milk is always available for the children. Parents will need to supply their own favoured brand of formula milk. We believe that Mealtimes should be a happy, social event; therefore staff eat with the children, giving guidance on feeding, table manners and etiquette.


We encourage children to be independent, and they are persuaded to sample food on offer. We never force children to eat, we would however discuss any on-going concerns regarding mealtimes with you. The Nursery operates four menus on a weekly rotation system which consist of a varied well-balanced diet, including fresh fruit and vegetables, high fibre and reduced salt and sugar.


TORNS is committed to maintaining strong parent/carer partnerships. Working together with parents is extremely important in getting the best possible experience for your child. Therefore, TORNS has an open door policy which means parents are able to talk to staff about anything regarding their children. We communicate with parents through monthly newsletters and staff issue 6 monthly reports detailing the progress of your child. Any concerns about the progress of your children can be discussed at our Parent's Evenings.


The Old Rectory Nursery School has a long standing and strong reputation which can be supported by our parents feedback.


You all have contributed positively to our son's social, moral and academic development.

Mr & Mrs Khanna

Thank you to everyone at The Old Rectory Nursery School for making our son so happy when he is at the Nursery. We have noticed an improvement in his social skills, speech and behaviour since he joined the Nursery.

Mario & Guiliana

Not only are the staff caring patient and kind they are very hard working, it's a pleasure to bring the children and leave them with no concerns regarding their welfare and age appropriate education. Both our children have excelled since being at the The Old Rectory Nursery School. I would strongly recommend anyone to explore the The Old Rectory Nursery School's website and book a viewing.

Mrs Macgregor

It was love at first sight and is going for 3 and half years since my daughter started at TORNS. All the staff have welcomed us into this fantastic Family, warmed us with their affection and love and is so delightful to watch our children around them like Mother Goose. Even though the staff is young and a few didn't experienced motherhood I really know for a fact that you will be great parents. I don't want to miss you, please keep on touch. God bless you all.
