Baylis Court Nursery School, Oatlands Drive, Slough, SL1 3HS | Tel: 01753 521917 Email:

Some 10 years ago, the core teaching staff at our nursery school visited the infant-toddler centres and pre-schools in Reggio Emilia, northern Italy. Our reflection on the practice there has influenced our provision here today. Our purpose built nursery school (February 2016) used a Reggio inspired design brief with an emphasis on the environment as the third teacher.

Our provision includes designation as a resource base for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and have appropriately trained staff for working with these children. We also provide for two year olds (with experienced staff working with this age range) and the thirty hours’ agenda.

We are an attachment aware school and our Family Support Worker is a valued resource for the children their families. Since 2013 we have used the Leuven scales to record and monitor the children’s levels of Wellbeing and Involvement. Through providing enabling environments and planning in the moment, we support children to become independent learners. We have a Level 3 qualified Forest School practitioner and a Wildlife Area, with a pond and our own beehives. The children take part in regular visits to Burnham Beeches on our mini-bus. Approximately half our places are for 30hr attendance.

We are a nursery school in the heart of Chalvey community. We have a 2-year-old provision, 3, 4-year-old provision, and an assessment unit for children with complex needs. We have developed continuous provision within the nursery which creates a calm and focused learning environment and the children are independent, self-motivated and resilient learners. Staff have also developed skilled questioning and deepening of children’s learning through the use of Blooms taxonomy. We will be moving into a new purpose built building in the summer term 2020.

Please contact individual Nursery Schools if you wish to reserve a place for a visit or require any further information.
