Abacus Day Nursery and Preschool

Last updated: 02/10/2023

Complete Childcare is a group of 16 nurseries based in Wokingham, Bracknell, Reading, Aldermaston, Newbury and Banbury. We pride ourselves on our family friendly features, and our fees are all inclusive, covering not only items such as nappies and milk, but also all meals and great activities such as Boogie Mites, outdoor learning and French lessons.

We are members of the National Day Nursery Association (NDNA) Home - NDNA and the Early Years Alliance early years alliance | (eyalliance.org.uk)

We are fully registered with Ofsted and work with them to ensure the highest possible standards of care for all children at our nurseries.

Abacus is a childcare gem in Newbury and has been the first choice for hundreds of families since opening in 1992. Parents love it for its home from home feel and great location close to the centre of Newbury; with plenty of parking in its own private car park there’s no need to rush and no busy road to cross outside.

We are known as Complete Childcare because we:

  • give every child we care for a positive and lasting memory of a fulfilling childhood
  • provide the same level and completeness of care to every child as if they were our own
  • know and understand the hopes and wishes of every parent for their child
  • use all our resources and professional training to develop the whole personality of every child. 

Cuddles and comfort

Hugs and cuddles help children to feel safe and provide them with great comfort when they are first settling into nursery. As their confidence grows and they explore more, they rely less on hugs and cuddles but still enjoy special time on our laps reading books, sitting and talking, and playing.

Safe and secure

Safety, security and trust are the fundamentals of happiness which is why we go to great lengths to make sure your child feels safe and secure at our nurseries. Our caring staff spend time forming bonds with the children and create a space with features they recognise and find comfort in.

Taking care of their feelings

In their early years children sometimes find it difficult to find the right words to explain their feelings. Our staff are experts in spotting the subtle signs when a child is unsure about their feelings and will always help the child to explore and understand what they are feeling and provide reassurance. 

Plenty of praise

Children love to please and letting them know just how well they have done is key to building confident, capable children. This helps them to learn, builds a desire to achieve, to make friends more easily, and feel happier and more secure. Our staff have many ways to let a child know they have done something fantastic.
