Our ethos statement

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.

Early Learning Opportunities Statement 

At The Forbury Group of Nurseries we promote the learning and development of all children in our care.  We recognise that each child is an individual and our high qualified staff consider their needs, interests, and development to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience across the seven areas of learning and development. Our staff guide and plan what children learn reflecting on different rates at which they develop and adjust practice appropriately.

Our aim is to support all children attending the nursery to attain their maximum potential within their individual capabilities.

We provide a positive inclusive play environment for every child, so they may develop good social skills and an appreciation of all aspects of this country’s multi-cultural society. We provide learning experiences to ensure, as far as practical, there is equality of opportunity for all children and a celebration of diversity.

We maintain a personalised record of every child’s development, showing their abilities, progress, interests and any areas requiring further support.

We acknowledge parents as primary educators and encourage parental involvement as outlined in our Parents and Carers as Partners policy. We build strong home links in order to enhance and extend children’s learning both within the nursery environment and in the child’s home and have meetings with parents to keep them up to date with their child’s progress.

Forbury Gardens is The Forbury Group's first nursery, established in 1991. We are a privately run children's day nursery, offering both full and part-time placements for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Located in the heart of Reading town centre, we are adjacent to Forbury Gardens and just a five-minute walk from both the train station and the town centre.

Our additional locations include Berkeley Gardens Day Nursery in Reading, Newbury Gardens Day Nursery in Newbury town centre, and two facilities in Woodley: Woodley Gardens in the town centre and Woodley Gardens on the outskirts.

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.
