Welcome to Our Nursery

Newbury Gardens Day Nursery is a privately run Nursery offering high quality professional Childcare for families in Newbury and the surrounding area. We care for children from 3 months to 5 years and we are open 51 weeks of the year from 8 am- 6pm. Monday – Friday. Full and Part time places are available. Located in Central Newbury just a short walk from the town centre and Newbury Train station.

The Nursery is based at Greenham House, which dates back to approx 1845. It is believed to have been initially used as a school and over the years has seen several different uses including a family home, children’s clinic and a family centre. The surrounding grounds were cleared sometime during the 1920’s and became the beautiful Greenham Gardens, which the house backs on to, a place which we enjoy with the children.

Our Ethos

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.

Our Nursery Manager

Mrs Emma McCartney, B’TEC, qualified as a Nursery Nurse in 1999. Emma then joined Forbury Gardens Day Nursery, in Reading as a newly Qualified Nursery Nurse. Emma worked in all age groups working her way up to becoming the Deputy Manager.

Emma took on the job of Nursery Manager at Newbury Gardens Day Nursery on opening in September 2013. After 14 years at our sister Nursery in Reading Emma felt the time was right to move to manage this new Nursery. Emma is passionate about ensuring high standards of care are maintained at Newbury Gardens Day Nursery and she is looking forward to welcoming lots of new families to the Nursery.

Emma has attended many training courses to help keep abreast of changes within the Early Years and has also attended an Emergency Paediatric First Aid course enabling her to be an Appointed First Aider for the Nursery. Emma is also a Mum of twins who attended the Nursery.

It is important for children of this age to receive continuity of care between nursery and home therefore the nursery staff will ensure your child’s familiar routine is maintained.

The health and safety of all the children are of fundamental importance. We aim to provide a secure and pleasant environment for everyone. We practice a whole range of safety policies and procedures. Your child is allocated a ‘Key Person’ within their room, who is responsible for your child’s well being, ensuring your child feels individual, secure and cherished while they are away from home.
