When you use our nursery, we’ll ask for and record yours and your child’s personal information.

The nursery in Maidenhead is owned and managed by Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (BHFT). However as with all BHFT nurseries, you do not need to work for BHFT for your child or children to be able to attend.
The nursery’s primary objective is to provide a safe and stimulating environment for all children, regardless of gender, background or ability. We allow each child to develop to their full ability in a positive and fun learning environment. The staff focus on each child, recognising that each child is a unique individual who will benefit from varying ways of interaction. This is achieved by following the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) 2014.
Kiddies' Cabin also believes in developing strong and co-operative relationships with parents, who the nursery recognises as a valuable source of information that will enable the staff to fully understand each child and their unique needs.
The EYFS states that ‘every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential’. Kiddies’ Cabin nursery staff along with children’s parents aim to achieve this ideal goal with every child.
Z is leaving to go to school and she has had an amazing time at Kiddies' Cabin. She loves being star of the day, taking part in the nursery nativity. The encouragement and support she has received throughout her time at the nursery, but especially in the Bluebell room have been appreciated. Z was especially excited to have been Star of the Week at nursery!
The nursery involves parents in their child's learning development. We have enjoyed attending the nativity and the Christmas parties!
I cannot pick out just one member of staff at Kiddies' Cabin! From Leigh and Richard who always give us a cheery welcome or wave us off in the evening, to the girls who all look after Z in Bluebell. Z raves about Saresh and Rachel. They are so kind and encouraging towards her. She is very, very fond of everyone!
We appreciate all that Kiddies' Cabin has done for Z during her time at the nursery. The staff are helpful, kind and do their very best to encourage the children’s development. It feels 'warm' and we will be sad to say goodbye for a while until our youngest joins later in 2016. We wish all the staff the very best for the future!
