Abbeymore Nursery

Day nursery

Setting currently closed.

Abbeymore Day Nursery is a 124 place nursery with an excellent reputation for providing the highest quality early care and education for babies and children from 3 months to 5 years. Our nursery operates from a beautiful converted Victorian house, spread over two floors, with seven spacious play rooms and outdoor play areas. Our premises are clean, airy, well lit, and welcoming all year round. We have a large car park for easier drop off and pick up. Our staff team is well qualified and highly-experienced. We strive to provide the children in our care with a wide range of activities including quiet, story time, role-play, creative activities and outdoor learning. All meals in the nursery are homemade, nutritious and freshly prepared by our cook on the premises. Our last Environmental Health inspection in August 2014 achieved the highest rating of 5 stars. The over 2's can take part in our football club. We also offer cookery classes for the children, teaching them about everyday life skills, such as healthy eating and hygiene. The children in our pre-school unit also take part in Zumbatomics, fitness based dances that allow the children to learn new rhythms and styles of dance in a fun atmosphere.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.

Notes

The nursery is run from my home and has done so for the last 33 years.

It is small and very family orientated, offering one to one care for each child.

Our families and staff come from all over the world, making us a truly global, multi cultural setting worthy of our UNICEF Silver Award.

We have also achieved the NDNA Millie's Mark - in recognition of our paediatric first aid skills from every staff member.

Wigwam Day Nursery

Day nursery

Setting will re-open in June 2020.

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.
