Professional Childcare

Newbury Gardens Day Nursery is a privately run, high quality, professional childcare service, catering in the main for working parents in the Newbury and surrounding areas. We care for children from 3 months to 5 years of age. We are open Monday – Friday throughout the year (except public, bank holidays and between Christmas Day and New Year). We offer full time and part time places. Our opening hours are 8am – 6pm.

Our Nursery has a defibrillator in place. We believe this is such an important piece of kit to have to hand in the case of a medical emergency, all staff have received training in how to use a defibrillator.

About the building… a place we enjoy with the children

The Nursery is based at Greenham House, which dates back to approx 1845. It is believed to initially be 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.

Yabba dance with Katy

We provide a weekly session of Yabba for all of the children. Yabba is a seriously funky, upbeat and energetic music and movement programme for children from birth onwards.

Children experience music from Riverdance to Trance, via Mozart and the Beach Boys…and everything in between. Children grow in confidence and skill, learn to share and take turns, to be bold and be still, get fitter, and sing in tune!


MNR exists to provide as many children as possible the opportunity to have a positive experience with a variety of sports at a young age. We are passionate about ensuring children develop in a fun, safe and happy environment.


All staff at the nursery are warm and welcoming. The nursery is extremely supportive of the needs of working parents and we always feel included. All staff have the children at the forefront of their minds and this has shown in the progress our child has made. A fabulous and caring environment that we are extremely pleased with.

I was really pleased with what I thought was a very nice gradual settling in process, by going in at different times of the day, she was well prepared for the first day. The Key Person is amazing with our child, everyday we still feel that welcoming environment.

We can see our child is extremely happy in the nursery and this is a  huge comfort that we know she is in a safe place with lots of care. We are exceptionally happy with the standard of care, the staff, the surroundings and the way that our child has settled in. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery to other families.
