Broughton Cottage Day Nursery, which reopened under new management in 2019, is set in a beautiful environment of a large private house which backs onto farmland in Dunton Green in an area of outstanding beauty within 10 minutes walking distance of Dunton Green mainline station and close to Sevenoaks, Knockholt and junction 4 of the M25. We are registered to care for up to 37 children aged from 3 months which gives us an intimate, homely feel that is not overwhelming for the children who attend the setting and enables the children to know all the staff. 

New owners Michelle Aston and John Tomlinson have returned the house and garden to its former very high standard. After gaining Ofsted registration on the 5th September 2019, Broughton Cottage reopened as an independent day nursery on 16th September. 

Michelle and John’s new venture comes after they worked together at Oaklands Day Nursery in Tonbridge. Oaklands was founded by John’s mother, Pat Tomlinson, in 1990.
