Stay & Play

Bring your busy little bee to The Abbey Nursery to join in our free fun Stay & Play sessions.

These free monthly sessions offer you and your toddler a safe and stimulating environment to make friends and enjoy learning through play.

Inspiring creative and imaginative play and encouraging your child’s natural curiosity is central to The Abbey’s learning ethos. Set in the University area of central Reading, Children can explore the Nursery garden and play with a range of toys, dressing up, science and role play equipment as well as take part in activities such as art, cooking, music and movement as they find out about the theme for the month. Refreshments will be provided for the children and parents/carers.
