About Us

Nurturing little one's big dreams


Providing a caring and compassionate environment as we fill the children’s days with fun and inspiring experiences to learn and develop.

Working in partnership with parents to provide the best start for children.
Who we are
Originally opened in 1992, Wren Day Nursery is popular with families from both rural and urban settings, from Leamington, Coventry, Kenilworth, and surrounding villages, as well as parents who work at Stoneleigh Park and Abbey Business Park. 

We moved into our fantastic purpose-built oak framed building on April 24th, 2009, and now comfortably accommodate up to 104 children ranging from 6wk old babies to five-year-olds.

We are open for 51 weeks of the year, five days a week, from 08.30-17.30, with early starts or late finishes at £2/ 30 mins by special arrangement. We offer flexible childcare and offer mornings, afternoons, and full days, with further discounts for full-time rates and siblings to suit your working hours or commitments. 

To smooth the settling-in, we ask for a minimum of two full days each week or 4 half day sessions, as we find this allows children to settle in and foster great relationships with both staff and their peers. This means they get used to being here with us quicker and we get to know them better!

Everyone is welcome at Wren; we respect, embrace and celebrate different cultures, religions, languages, and individual differences and have a wealth of experience in caring for children with additional needs.
Nature's Playground: Explore, Grow, and Thrive


We are extremely lucky to have such a large, unique, rural outdoor space that allows the children to safely explore, run and be free. 

We provide age-appropriate activities and resources in our separate gardens to suit the age and stage of the children. We promote challenge, risk-taking, and new experiences by encouraging children to use the open space to explore nature whether through free play, or organised activities. Spare clothes, wellies, and waterproofs are a must at Wren Day Nursery. 

We value our beautiful surroundings and have adventures on the Stoneleigh Park site and have our own minibus for fun trips further afield.
Safe and Secure
We want every child to feel content, safe and secure whilst in our care, and to give parents peace of mind too. Our staff members work hard to bond with all the children, not just those they are key person to, so the children and parents, always feel comfortable. 

Our nursery site is entirely secure with a biometric security system that allows only registered visitors access via thumbprint recognition.   A personal password system for pick-ups by anyone other than parents/regular grandparents is also used.
Healthy food, Healthy mind

Healthy Eating

Our delicious, healthy, and nutritious food is sourced from trusted suppliers and prepared and cooked onsite with all allergy and dietary requirements catered for. Our nursery follows a 5-day menu rotation with meal plans designed in collaboration with recommendations from the NHS and government as well as feedback from our parents.

We understand the significant role that a balanced diet and nutrition has on the well-being and shaping of a child and their future. We don’t add any salt to our meals and limit added sugar whenever we can.

Wren Day Nursery has a Food Standards Agency ‘very good’ 5-star food hygiene rating.
For all ages, we offer a play-based curriculum to support all aspects of your child’s learning and development. We aim to help them discover that learning is fun – this is vitally important if children are going to remain keen learners for the rest of their lives. We consider their needs, stages of development and plan a challenging and enjoyable experience across all the areas of learning and development.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS), for which we are assessed by Ofsted. This gives us an outline to work within and helps when developing care and learning plans for the children.

Under this framework, learning is grouped into the following areas:
• Communication and language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design
When your child moves on to primary school you can therefore be sure they will be well prepared. We have developed good relationships with many local schools in the area and some teachers visit the nursery to meet the new children before they move on.

Settling In

Children all settle in at different rates. to make this as easy as possible for children and parents, we encourage parents to stay and play with their children before leaving them in our care.

As your child's confidence grows, they will start to explore their new surroundings and become familiar with their key person. Your registration fee covers two sessions for 'settling in', where you leave your child with us for an hour and then two hours with lunch, before their regular days begin. All children are allocated a designated key person who will be responsible on a daily basis for all aspects of their care and development, as well as daily handovers with you.

Parent Partnerships
We believe that working in partnership with you is key to supporting your child's learning and development. Regular communication through daily handovers, progress reports, parents' evenings, and our weekly newsletter, together with our open-door policy, ensures your child receives the very best care.

Parents are invited in once a month for a stay and play with their child, these dates are sent out via our Famly app. We also aim to hold two events a year such as our Easter Eggstravaganza and Christmas Cracker Day as well as ad-hoc events with a cause for celebration.

Supporting Special Educational Needs

We recognise that children and their families have a wide range of needs, and we will endeavour to play a part in meeting those. We are committed to inclusion and will do our utmost to allow access to all children, making reasonable adjustments where possible. The best interests of the child will always be paramount; each child’s needs are unique, and we do not attempt to categorise children.

We are committed to working in partnership with parents and other agencies to meet each child’s individual needs and enable their development.

We are lucky enough to have two qualified Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators as well as other staff members with personal experience in supporting additional needs and we believe Wren efficiently identifies and initiates the right action for any additional support a child may need or benefit from. For further information, please refer to our policies and procedures or contact the nursery directly.

'Staff are kind and caring and respond to children's emotional needs well'

Following our Ofsted inspection in January 2023, we are really pleased to announce we have received an overall Good rating at Wren Day Nursery.

Wren Funding - Flexible Affordable Childcare Options available

Wren offers 2yr and 3-4y old Government funding that can subside the cost of nursery care.

Every little helps, and parents can benefit from extra government contributions to their childcare costs by applying for a Tax-free childcare account too:

A Tax-free childcare account is an online Government service for working families, including the self-employed in the UK, to make payments to their childcare providers.

Parents must earn under £100k and at least £167 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage)

Parents cannot be in receipt of Tax Credits, Universal Credits, or childcare vouchers to set this up.

For every £8 you pay into an online account, the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child per year

15 – 30 hours of Educational Free Childcare

All children, the term after their 3rd birthday, are automatically eligible to claim up to 15 hours of Early Educational free childcare for 38 weeks.

Wren standardly ‘stretches’ these hours over 48 weeks of the year, offering slightly less hours for more weeks to help spread the cost of Early Years care..

Families in England receiving some forms of financial support may also be eligible for 2-year funding for up to 15 hours.

If you meet the criteria, working families with 3 and 4-year-old children can apply for their extended entitlement and claim up to 30 hours of free childcare - a total of 1,140 hours per year, that you can use flexibly at Wren.

The UK has significant upcoming changes to the offer of 15 and 30 hrs funding as they increase who is eligible to receive financial support. Wren will keep parents updated as new information is provided.
