YMCA King’s Nursery is an important part of the Malmesbury community and supports many parents who work for local employers, including Dyson. It was established many years ago and YMCA Bath Group took over the management of the nursery in 2013 and more recently we have purchased the building. We work hard in this unique and beautiful community to provide a programme that includes exciting activities that deliver the EYFS and provides the best learning outcomes for each child’s individual needs. Situated close to the town centre of Malmesbury, this 52 place nursery has 4 aged designated areas. Outside we are fortunate to have an enclosed garden where the children can play safely. We also use the local community for walks and outings.

7.30 am – 6.00 pm Monday – Friday, 51 weeks of the year. The nursery is closed Bank holidays and between Christmas and the New Year.

All children aged 3 and 4 are eligible to receive 15 hours free early education each week. We offer this flexibly across the week and we are open from 7.30am until 6pm each weekday.

Working parents are eligible for an additional 15 hours free early education per week. This takes the total to 30 hours a week for 38 weeks a year. To check if you are eligible please check the Council web site below. At some of our nurseries we are able to spread this offer across the year and offer 22 hours for the 51 weeks.

Eligible two year olds can access 15 hours free and parents can check whether their child is eligible by looking on the Wiltshire Council web site. www.wiltshire.gov.uk

We take a range of childcare voucher schemes, and recommend that you visit the Childcare Choices website to see which scheme will help you best with your childcare fees. https://childcarechoices.gov.uk

Here at King’s we recognise and believe that parents are the experts of their children and we work hard to forge positive relationships during settling-in visits to talk about your child’s individual needs. We are as flexible as possible regarding hours, days and times and our nursery is open from 7:30 am until 6:00 pm 51 weeks of the year. We are here to support a variety of work patterns that parents present and work hard to accommodate individual family needs.

All of our learning is play based and staff keenly and accurately observe children to enable them to plan activities around their interests. Staff are passionate about tailoring Next Steps to help children extend their learning and to reach their full potential.

We believe an outdoor classroom brings huge advantages in learning and resource our outside space well. We also take the children out of the nursery into the beautiful and historic town and countryside of Malmesbury.
