About this service

At our nursery, it’s all about play, fun, and development. We bring disabled and non-disabled children together, encouraging them to explore, interact, and grow.

Every child is unique, and we celebrate their individual characteristics, nurturing their self-confidence, social skills, and curiosity.

Through active learning, we ignite their imagination and promote essential motor skills and communication development.

At Kids’ Basingstoke Nursery, we’re all about nurturing happy children, fostering their development, and supporting families every step of the way. Come join our community of learning and growth!

Introducing our nursery

Our bubbles

The nursery is separated into three main rooms that we call ‘bubbles’.

Blue Bubble: This is where our youngest ones, aged 3 months to 2 years, make their first memories. With a caring ratio of 1:3, this space includes a sleep room, nappy changing area, and mealtime zones. Here, we focus on sensory exploration, physical development, communication, and social interaction.

Red Bubble: This room is home to our 2 to 4-year-olds, with a ratio of 1:4. It’s all about embracing the Early Years Foundation Stage, fostering cultural understanding, self-awareness, and expanding horizons. Through play, we ignite their imagination, boost their communication skills, and broaden their knowledge.

Green Bubble: Designed for 3 to 5-year-olds, this space maintains a ratio of 1:8. Our focus in the Rainforest is once again on all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Here, we promote independence, refine gross and fine motor skills, enhance communication and language, and ensure our children are well-prepared for the exciting transition to school.

Other areas

Garden: all our children have access to our fantastic garden areas, where outdoor learning plays a pivotal role in their daily adventures.

Sensory Room: we’re particularly proud of our sensory room, a beloved addition since 2019. It’s a delightful space where all our children (and staff!) can explore various lights, sounds, and soft play objects. This sensory wonderland is especially beneficial for children with learning difficulties, developmental disabilities, or sensory impairments. It builds their confidence and abilities while providing a calming environment that helps us identify their preferences.

Parrot Room: we’ve set aside a tranquil space for speech and language development. This quiet room, equipped with lots of resources, is where children and their key worker work on enhancing their communication skills.

Accessing the nursery

If you are interested in applying for a place for your child please get in touch with us to arrange a chat. If you decide to join us we will arrange three ‘stay and play’ sessions where your child can come and play with us for 1 hour. These sessions enable the children to start to feel familiar with our setting as well as helping staff get to know your child’s specific needs.

Please see the documents below for more information on our application process and options for help with funding places.
