The Wantage Nursery and Preschool - the "homely" choice


We open Monday to Friday 52 weeks a year from 7.30am to 6pm

We care for Children from 3 months to 5 years old

 Welcome to the Wantage Nursery & Preschool. We are situated in the centre of Wantage with our own small car park (as well as a large public car park right next door) and we are less than a minute’s walk from the town's Market Place.

Our nursery is a friendly happy and homely environment where our top priority is to have safe contented children. We believe nursery should be about making friends and learning through play in a home from home with kind and caring adults for support.

Our staff are extremely important to your child and to us and we ensure they are highly qualified and love little people.

We have excellent facilities both indoors and outdoors including a very well equipped and sheltered purpose build garden with different areas which cater for all our young children’s needs from safe baby friendly spaces ideal for crawlers through to a big deep sandpit for the older children to climb into and dig deep! We also have a bad weather play area for extreme cold or wet days.

We place great emphasis on spending lots of time outside in the fresh air and we use both the indoors and outdoors to deliver all areas of the early years curriculum to a high standard.

We constantly strive to give our children memorable experiences with exciting opportunities to learn through play that they might not always be able to do at home and give them the opportunity to make some of their first friends. We ensure every child is well prepared for starting "big school".  We nurture every individual to feel confident in who they are and be an enthusaistic learner.

Don’t just take our word for it though. Please read what our parents say and watch the videos. Our website will also tell you more about us. Call us on 01235 760213 to ask any questions you may have. We also recommend you arrange an appointment to come and see us as choosing care for your little one is an important decision and we’d love to meet you and show you around and introduce you to some of our staff and children as this will be very helpful for you in deciding if our nursery is right for you.
We hope to hear from you soon.
