Caversham Nursery School 0 to 3's

Setting open.

Caversham Nursery School is situated within a purpose built single storey centre that opened its doors on 21st April 2009, with the Daycare element opening May 2009. 

We are open all year Monday to Friday from 8-6pm closing bank holidays and three days between Christmas and New Year as well as three in-service training days per year.

The nursery is currently divided into 3 age ranges and areas: The Discoverers 0-24 months, The Explorers 24months -36 months, and The Inventors Room, for children aged 3-5 years.

We support children and families who are in receipt of two year old funding.   

Our aims:

To provide a caring, happy and secure environment in which each child's self-esteem and confidence are promoted in order to help them become well motivated and independent learners.

To meet the individual needs of every child and their families.

To provide an effective, broad and balanced early years curriculum which fosters development towards the early learning goals identified in the early years foundation stage. 

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
