Our Taplow Nursery
Silchester Manor Day Nursery in Taplow, is conveniently located on Bath Road – between Maidenhead and Bray
Our Taplow nursery occupies a beautiful Victorian mansion house with large rooms and high ceilings, with many original features. The nature of the building, with its bright and airy rooms, gives our children lots of space to explore, play and learn. The nursery is warm and welcoming and has a homely feel which we love, and are very proud of. Our Taplow nursery has been totally refurbished with love and care, and is a beautiful space for our children to enjoy.
Our indoor play space
We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies (3 months to 12 months), our toddlers (12 months to 24 months), our 2 - 3 years olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for, nurtured and encouraged to explore and investigate.
Our outdoor play space
If you visit our day nursery in Taplow, you’ll see that it benefits from several acres of beautiful grounds surrounded by a woodland area, which include separate grassed and well equipped outdoor play areas for the younger and older children, a hardstanding area, and a large secure grassed field - enabling us to provide exceptional and exciting outdoor play opportunities and learning experiences. We have over an acre of meadow, and during the spring and summer months we love to take the children to explore wildlife on our ‘discovery walks’ through this meadow, and we develop their curiosity and love of nature in our ‘woodland activity centre’.
We have a huge wooden treehouse that our children gain confidence on as they climb and have huge fun on, as they slide off down our ‘shute’. We have digging and planting areas in our ‘Veggie Patch’ which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. And we have ‘sand play’ areas and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.
Our resources, equipment and facilities
Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Taplow with such extensive outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we also work hard to make the best of our indoor facilities too. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest. We also have a hall, which gives the children the opportunity to run around and engage in physical play indoors, and IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.
We are committed to remaining the best day nursery in Taplow, and to providing outstanding childcare and early learning opportunities for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.
We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:
• Providing rich enabling environments and stimulating activities
• Having knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
• Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
• Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
• Children and adults having fun!
We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in and see us at Silchester Manor Day Nursery in Taplow.
