Wigwam Day Nursery

We are a 36 place family-fun nursery. Come and visit us and you'll find us ready to care for and cherish your child. Our team are very experienced and we take pride in our training too, you'd expect nothing less, but what really makes the difference is that we select our team on the values we cherish - their friendliness and love of children. We look after children from six weeks, until they leave us to go to school, and we are proud that we are the only nursery in Reading to be registered with Ofsted to look after babies of this age. Our friendly team provides a high standard of care and education. We are proud of our nursery and its environment; we have a spacious garden which we make use of all the time, as well as going on trips. All of our food is freshly prepared, homemade and nutritious and we have 5 stars for our food hygiene. We run cookery class, dance class and french lessons and have a preschool teacher, so there are lots of fun things on every day.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
