Our lives as working parents have been so much easier knowing she is getting all the cuddles and personal attention she needs (and that's a lot!)
"At first we were hesitant about putting our daughter into childcare, but after visiting and seeing how comfortable she was there, even on her first visit, we knew it was the right place for her! Deciding where to put your child is very personal but the staff here care for her in a way we could only have hoped for".
"My daughter absolutely loves it!! The staff are all so friendly and approachable, she is very attached and always very happy to go. I feel she is in a safe, caring and fun environment. She loves the singing and playing outside. I would recommend it to anyone".
"My daughter loves the nursery. It is really funny to see her standing at the door on a Sunday morning with her bag asking if it is time to leave!".
"My little girl has been at the Wantage nursery from 20 weeks old. She is always happy and smiling and seems to have a lovely day. We are very pleased with everything the nursery has to offer".
"I knew from the first visit that this is where I wanted my son to go. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and all have a fantastic relationship with my son. Through the excellent care and wide range of activities it has been a great pleasure to see him develop".
"All the staff are very friendly, my daughter loves going to nursery, she comes home singing new songs and telling me what she has done such as playing outside, which she loves, and cooking".
"Everything about the Wantage Nursery & Preschool is fantastic. Lovely staff, lovely children and a wonderful atmosphere".

We are situated in the centre of Wantage. We have 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 indoors and are particularly proud of our big outdoors space which has specifically been designed with very small children in mind and to enable us to be outside in all weathers. 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.
