Park Day Nursery

Setting open.

Park Day Nursery is situated in a large Victorian house close to central Reading and Earley. The nursery stretches across four storeys enabling us to have a dedicated pre-school classroom (Badgers); a dedicated sleep room for our under 2s (Dormice) and art (Hedgehogs), physical development (Foxes) and sensory (Butterflies) rooms for our children to play, explore and express themselves in. Curiosity Cabin in located in our garden to allow small groups of pre-schoolers to explore and discover in a wonderful language rich environment.

Our qualified Forest School Teacher runs sessions with the pre-school children on a termly basis, and ad-hoc with our 2-3s, in our very own dedicated Forest School Area.

The content and structure of each day is planned by our pre-school teachers in Badgers 3-5s and room leader in Squirrels 2-3s, in conjunction with each child’s key person whilst our under 2’s room leader and the team arrange a wide range of different activities and experiences for the youngest members of our community.

In 2018 we were awarded Millie's Mark the gold standard in paediatric first aid. We are only the second nursery in Reading to achieve this prestigious accreditation. 

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
