Wise Owls Day Nursery, opened its doors in Abingdon in October 2019. Tanya Galitzine trained at the Norland College, Hungerford. The Day Nursery believes in children learning through fun, exciting activities and games within a caring, safe environment. It prides itself in developing each child’s individual abilities and preparing them with quality skills for life in a fun learning environment.
Wise Owls Childcare was founded by Tanya Galitzine in 2000 at Winbury School, Bray. Having trained at The Norland College, where in 1995 she gained an NNEB, Norland Diploma in childcare, she has subsequently spent some 24 years working within the childcare sector. She is a parent herself and appreciates the many challenges of parenthood.
Today, Wise Owls provides a valuable service to busy parents of children between the ages of 8 weeks and 14 years within the five main categories of child care, Pre School, Day Care, Nursery School, Before & After school clubs and Holiday provision.
“Above all, my aim is to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment in which children can experience creative play, have fun and make friends”.
At Wise Owls Day Nursery, we wish the children to return home at the end of each day having had fun learning about a new topic and exploring a new skill. We do all we can to support parents with the transition from home to Nursery and then on to School. Parents can relax in the knowledge that their child is being cared for in a happy and safe environment.
We have a beautiful homely building to work with which gives us a great start. We have updated the space and have more exciting plans for the future, the premises have a large garden with a sand pit and climbing obstacles as well as its own allotment space where children can enjoy planting their own food to use for snack and meal times, we also have a woodland area close by allowing the children to go and burn of some energy exploring the woods.
Wise Owls Day Nursery, Abingdon is ungraded by OFSTED as we are a new setting. We have childcare provisions stretching from Oxford to Farnham Royal with GOOD to OUSTANDING rating. Sarah & Kaleigh our managers at Abingdon are working closely with Jacqui our quality assurance assistant to train all the staff in policies, procedures and maintain a high level of childcare throughout the nursery. The nursery is full of smiling facies of happy busy children whom are cared for by a team of staff who really know their children and parents well.
