Shiplake Village Nursery

In April 2018, the Governors of Shiplake CE Primary School took over the management of Shiplake Village Nursery


Shiplake Village Nursery was established in 1966 and has occupied its current premises since 1990. The Nursery is situated next to Shiplake Memorial Hall and field and is in close proximity to Shiplake CofE Primary School grounds. There is ample parking making it easy for drop off and collection.

On the 1st April 2018 Shiplake Village Nursery merged with Shiplake CofE School and is now managed by the Governors of the School. Combining operations has proved to be a positive move, improving experiences and outcomes for children, as well as ensuring a seamless transition to the Reception class.

The Nursery has use of a well maintained garden, which has willow structures and raised beds for planting and playing in. We also have immediate access to open countryside and woodland. The Nursery room provides a light, spacious and attractive environment for the children inside. The room is planned to maximise the children’s learning experiences and there are two child sized toilets, which help build confidence and independence. We have use of a fully equipped kitchen and there is a lobby with the children’s cloakroom
and adult bathroom. We have sole use of the nursery room. The garden, lobby and kitchen have shared use, but we have sole use during nursery opening times.

We are Ofsted rated ‘Good’ are registered on the Early Years Register and both the voluntary and compulsory Childcare Register.
