Abbeymore Day Nursery and Preschool

A Bright and Welcoming Nursery in Reading

Welcome to Abbeymore Day Nursery and Preschool. Our beautiful nursery, set in a charming character building, is dedicated to providing the best care, support, and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Inspiring Rooms for all Ages

In our cosy baby rooms, we will follow your little one's routine from home as closely as possible, to help make the transition from home to nursery easier.

Our colourful toddler rooms are set up to encourage your child to explore and embrace their independence. Activities are based on the children's interests and help them reach their developmental milestones.

Preschool is a large and exciting room, that benefits from a separate art and role-play room. In preschool, your little learner will discover all the skills they need to help them feel prepared and confident to start school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Discoveries in the Garden

Your child will love spending time in our large and exciting garden. Children enjoy freeflow access to the garden, which can be used in all weathers. From trikes and football, to play trays and soft play resources, there is always so much to explore.
