Caring, sharing & learning together

Sharing, caring & 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.
