About Papillon

  • Papillon Nursery School is family owned and run and operates from purpose built, bright and spacious rooms adjacent to the family home. The nursery cares for children from twenty two months to three years in the Caterpillar class and three years to five years in the Butterfly class during term time.

    The setting is safe and secure and enjoys the benefits of a delightful, mature garden which is used daily.


  • Situated in the centre of Tunbridge wells the school was established in 1994 and has been subsequently managed by the owner Lynette Blunkett – Evans, a qualified primary school teacher (Cert. Ed. London University). After teacher training and two years teaching in an Infant school in London, she spent seven years as an Air Hostess with British Airways which enabled her to gain a wide perspective of and insights into customs, cultures and ways of life before returning to teaching. She then gained considerable additional experience working in the fields of : Additional and Special Needs, Home Tutoring, Teaching and Supporting Children with English as an Additional Language, before establishing Papillon.

  • A strategic choice was made by the owners to concentrate efforts and resources into one setting to ensure a ‘hands on’ family atmosphere and provision of the highest quality is maintained.
