Professional childcare

Berkeley Gardens Day Nursery is a privately run, high quality, professional childcare service, catering in the main for working parents in the Reading and surrounding areas. We care for children from 3 months to 5 years of age.
We are open Monday – Friday throughout the year (except public and bank holidays and between Christmas Day and New Year). Full time places and part time places are available. Our opening hours are 8.00am – 6.00pm.

Our Nursery has a defibrillator in place. We believe this is such an important piece of kit to have to hand in the case of a medical emergency, all staff have received training in how to use a defibrillator.

Wiggle Waggle with Miss Joanna

We provide a weekly session of Wiggle Waggle for all of the children.
Wiggle Waggle is a seriously funky, upbeat and energetic music and movement programme for children from birth onwards.

Children experience music from Riverdance to Trance, via Mozart and the Beach Boys…and everything in between. Children grow in confidence and skill, learn to share and take turns, to be bold and be still, get fitter, and sing in tune!


uSports exists to provide as many children as possible the opportunity to have a positive experience with a variety of sports at a young age. We are passionate about ensuring children develop in a fun, safe and happy environment whilst educating them not only in sports but as young people. These sessions are linked to the EYFS and are thoroughly enjoyed by the children. uSports | Sports Coaching | Based In Berkshire


We are very happy with the Nursery and all the staff that look after our child, we have been particularly impressed with how everyone has gone out of their way to ensure that our child settled into nursery, it’s plain to see that our child loves coming to nursery and is developing so well.

Our daughter really enjoys going to Nursery, we are really happy with the service that you provide. The Nursery has a really welcoming atmosphere, and the staff in the rooms really do care about the children which is fantastic.

Berkeley Gardens has been an absolutely outstanding environment for our children and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
