Providing childcare to children from the age of 2 years old Wokingham Day Nursery, established since 1974, is extremely proud of the experience and care we are able to give your children in a home from home, caring and warm environment.
We offer a unique combination of experienced and highly qualified, consistent and reliable staff.
Located at the heart of Wokingham we are a registered charity, managed by an enthusiastic committee of parents who actively fundraise on behalf of the nursery. As a non-profit making organisation all fees are invested back into the care of our children, which enables us to keep our fees affordable and maintain a good balance between high quality and good value.
We are inclusive in meeting the needs of our children and their families. Our ratio of adult to child is 1:6 for children over 3 years and 1:4 for children under 3 years, ensuring individual attention to the needs and development of your children.
The nursery recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their young children. We aim to support parents and parents are encouraged to support the nursery.
We aim to enhance the development and education of children under school age in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. We will offer your child individual care and attention, fun and friendship with other children and adults.
We provide flexibility for parents differing needs offering full and part days.
We encourage involvement from parents and grand-parents at the nursery by organising family days and events at the nursery and welcome those who are available to volunteer activity at the nursery (e.g. reading, supporting day trips).

The number of adults present in the nursery enables us to provide individual attention for each child. Each child is able to progress at his/her own rate in all areas of development and this is true for children with or without disabilities or learning difficulties. We are experienced in working closely with professionals across the range of special needs. If you would like to discuss the group’s abilities to meet your child’s special needs, please talk to Chloe Cooper, who is our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator(SENCO).
