Jack In The Box Day nursery in Slough opened in 1992 and registered at these new premises in 2004. It operates from a single storey building within the grounds of Upton Hospital in Slough.
The Berkshire Healthcare NHS Nurseries offer high quality care and education, by highly motivated, knowledgeable staffing. The individual needs of children are supported to enable them to reach their full potential.
Our learning environments allow children to explore, initiate their own play and grow as individuals.
Children are cared for in four different rooms which are used according to the needs and development stage of children.
The nursery is open Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year between 7.30am and 6.00pm. Days are 10 hours long with a start time of 7.30am, 7.45am or 8.00am. There is a minimum attendance of 2 days per week.
There are secure areas for outdoor play. The setting supports children with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and those who have English as an additional language.
We are managed and trained by the NHS and all our staff are NHS employees. However, as with all of our nurseries, you do not need to work for the NHS for your child or children to be able to obtain a place and attend.
Our nursery in Slough has space allocation to cater for 81 children at any one time. We accept children aged from 1 year until 31st August after their 4th birthday. Children are eligible for a school place in a reception class with effect from the September following their 4th birthday.

Z is moving to a nursery closer to my work place. I have seen my son develop from a 6 month baby to a 14 month toddler. He went through all key steps in Jack In The Box and they are all memorable to me and very positive. I love the girls in the baby room. It's heart breaking.
The ladies in the baby room are very friendly and caring about my baby. That's most important to me.
I would like to give a special mention to my key carer. She is lovely and I feel she was heart broken when I gave her the news that my baby will be moving nurseries.
