Queens Park Community Nursery

Response to COVID-19

Are you open for keyworkers children and vulnerable children? YES

Are you willing to accept children from other providers? YES


Queens Park Community Nursery is located on the west side of Bedford, and offers full daycare for children aged 6 months to 5 years in a purpose built, child friendly building. The nursery is located next to Queens Park Academy School and Queens Park Children’s Centre, which very much supports the child’s key transitions from birth to school.

Families First Bedfordshire took over management of the Nursery in September 2017, and are excited to be part of a strong community network. We are registered with Ofsted as the provider and just had our first inspection and achieved Good rating! 

Families First Bedfordshire Nurseries provide a secure and loving space for children and families to grow. Children have the opportunity to develop in an organised, supportive and challenging environment to develop to their full potential. We recognise that each stage of a child’s development has unique characteristics that influence how a child will experience his or her environment, which will determine the direction of their brain development.
