New Bridge Nursery School

Welcome to New Bridge Nursery School, Tel: 01189 37 5580

In our nursery you will see everyone helping your child to engage positively in their learning, whilst having lots of fun, and making progress in their development.

You are passionate about ensuring that all children succeed in their learning and accomplishments during their time at New Bridge. The school’s vision, ‘Challenging minds in a changing world’, is a reality at New Bridge Nursery School. This is because adults capture special moments with children to move their learning forward and skilfully build on what children already know and can do

Snowflake ASC Resource Centre                                                                                                   

We are a specialised nursery setting for children who are awaiting an assessment for an autism spectrum condition OR who have a diagnosis of autism. We cater for 3 to 5 year old children who live in the Reading area.  Our Snowflake Centre provides a positive and holistic environment where children can grow, develop and gain an interest in the world around them.   Our aim is to provide positive experiences every day, to build relationships with families and to have high expectations for learning.  Autism is a lifelong spectrum condition and each child we work with is treated and respected as an individual. We work closely together to provide the best learning environment for each child.  We  offer either five mornings or five afternoon places. For more details click HERE.

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak we will be closed until further notice.

We are currently closed to all children except children of keyworkers (as identified by the Government) and those children who are classed as vulnerable (children with a social worker or those with an EHCP).  Government guidance is clear - it states that children should be kept at home and only attend school/nursery if there is NO other option.

In the meantime we will be creating a Home Learning section on this website where you can access lots of ideas to keep your child/ren busy.  We will also be posting daily challenges and activities on here, Facebook and Tapestry.
