Caring, sharing & learning together

Sharing, Caring and Learning Together


We are very proud of our ‘outstanding’ nursery. We feel privileged to be able to play a part in supporting children during their precious early years.

One of the first nursery schools in Slough to open, in 1937; Slough Centre Nursery was established to support the working families of the then new Slough Trading Estate. Still housed in its original, spacious wooden building; which was opened by Lady Astor, Slough Centre Nursery has grown to meet the needs of the ever changing local community across the last eighty years! We have supported multi generations of many families here at the nursery. The school continues to develop and has been part of the TLC nursery federation alongside Chalvey Nursery since 2012. Through this we have been able to share expertise and good practice, further strengthening the nursery.

The school caters for up to 163 children in total. We have children accessing our 2yr old, 3 & 4yr old and our ASD resource provision. The majority of our children attend part time (15hrs a week) with some children accessing full time or 30hrs places.

We are an experienced, skilled and committed team. The classroom staff includes qualified teachers, early years practitioners and teaching assistants. We firmly believe a child’s well-being and happiness is vital to their learning success and this is at the heart of everything we do. We endeavor to ensure all children have the best possible experiences within our engaging learning environment. It is a nurturing place that fosters positive relationships and partnership working, leading to the best possible outcomes for all our children. The atmosphere is one of family and we believe in ‘sharing, caring and learning together.’ Our curriculum is planned to equip the children with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed not only for the next stage in learning, but for life.

Sport Relief
Sport Relief

We decided to have a very active week at nursery to coincide with the Sport Relief fundraising event taking place nationally.

The driveway had an obstacle and agility course to complete on the way in with hoops to jump in, cones to navigate and beams to balance on. Our corridor had a sensory circuit with foot and hand prints to follow. Naturally, the children found some really ingenious ways to complete it! We were also lucky enough to have a specialist sports coach in called Danny (from Get Sports Inspired) who helped us to learn early football skills and simple team games. Our parent area had a stall out all week with lots of different ideas for simple ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine, including things you can even do when stood in a queue at the shops. Regular exercise helps us to sleep better, learn more and improves our overall well-being, so we are definitely going to keep it up.

World Oral Health Day

A good oral health routine including brushing your teeth twice each day and regular dental check-ups are crucial to your child’s overall health.

Yet, 41.5% of 5 yr olds in Slough suffer with decay compared to a national average of 23%. That’s why we are raising awareness of this issue and promoting good oral health in nursery starting from 20th March (World Oral Health Day) as part of an ongoing campaign. Please make a pledge on our corridor display to make a difference for your child. There are lots of ideas on our display of the types of pledges you and your child could make. These include things such as brushing your teeth twice a day, visiting the dentist for a check-up regularly, eating fewer sugary snacks between meals and many more. Help your child by making a commitment to good oral health and encourage and inspire others to do the same. Take a tooth, write a pledge and stick it up.
