Oxford Waterways Day Nursery and Preschool is specifically designed to meet the needs of children from 3 months to 5 years with each room supporting their different stages of development. Rated 'Good' by Ofsted, we ensure your child will benefit from inspiring learning in a caring environment.
A Bright Beginning
Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.
Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it 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 development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.
Children also love our Boogie Mites active music-making sessions that help them to learn about the world through music and song.
Your child will love our fantastic large garden. From biking to water and sand play, and exploring in the nature garden, they'll enjoy the freedom of free-flow access to enjoy these outdoor activities. Your little explorer will also benefit from regular trips to additional grounds and the park.
Strong Parent Partnerships
Together, we can improve children's life chances, both academically and emotionally, as we prepare them for school and beyond.
Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) specialists are on hand to ensure your child is receiving the best possible care and education to suit their individual needs.
All-Inclusive Care and Convenience
- Nutritiously-balanced meals are prepared by our onsite chef, catering for all dietary requirements, and we hold a 5* EHO rating for food safety and hygiene.
- Necessities such as nappies, wipes, creams, and formula are also included, so there's less to pack on those busy mornings.
- Excellent transport links with onsite parking, bicycle and buggy park, and in close proximity to Oxford Railway.
Your Personal Tour
We are looking forward to welcoming you and your little explorer to look around and ask any questions you might have.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the NEW Bright Horizons Family App. The app will offer a variety of features that will give you the ability to get more information on your child's day than ever before, as well as being able to notify the nursery of any changes to your planned pick-up or absences, as well as booking extra sessions.
Where possible we look to offer flexible booking patterns and a range of funding options, including the government's 30 hours funded childcare* provision. To request pricing and availability, please request a call back by clicking the button below.
