Waingels Gardens Day Nursery is part of The Forbury Group of Nurseries, established in 1991. We provide a professional private childcare service. We offer full and part time places to children from 3 months old up to the age of 5 years. We are open 52 weeks of the year. Monday to Friday 8am until 6pm.
We are situated in the grounds of Waingels College, with ample parking for dropping off and picking up your child. The Nursery is close to the A4 and ten minutes from Reading town centre.
All of our meals are home cooked using fresh, locally sourced ingredience. We also cater for all food allergies and dietary requirements. Our other Nurseries are situated in Reading and surrounding areas; Forbury Gardens, Berkeley Gardens, Woodley Gardens and Newbury Gardens Day Nursery.
Our ethos is to create an environment where children are engaged, motivated, independent thinkers, who have a positive attitude to learning, supported by secure and respectful relationships. We only have one chance to get it right for our children and what we do now, stays with them for the rest of their lives.
