Reading Nursery Relaunches Following a £82K Investment
Published 7 Sep 2023 in Store Opening
Local nursery and pre-school, Co-op Childcare Reading, will be relaunched this Saturday following a £82k investment by its owners, The Midcounties Co-operative.
Located in The Hospitium on Valpy Street in the heart of Reading city centre, the nursery has undergone a full refurbishment and rebrand to transform it into a Your Co-op Little Pioneers nursery and pre-school.
Your Co-op Little Pioneers is run by one of the UK’s largest independent co-operatives, The Midcounties Co-operative. Its mission is to provide a holistic, child-centric approach to education, helping every child to become their best selves whilst also learning about the communities and world they live in.
It has several rooms – all of which have a stimulating and tailored environment for each age group to support their learning and development in a fun and inspiring way.
It also has a large garden for outdoor play, a designated parents’ room to catch up with the allocated key worker, to access free Wi-Fi or just for a relax.
In addition, each child and family will have an allocated key worker who will listen and work with them in partnership to make sure they’re getting the best from nursery life, from updates on their child’s progress to advice on toilet training, food, friendships, sleeping patterns and more.
Your Co-op Little Pioneers Reading Nursery will be hosting an open day from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 9th September where parents will be able to take a look around the brand-new nursery and its expert team will be on hand to answer any questions about the transformation. For more information and to book a visit, please visit the Your Co-op Little Pioneers website.
Leanne Green, Nursery Manager at Your Co-op Little Pioneers Reading, said: “We are so excited to be revealing our fresh new look and branding at our nursery in Reading. It looks great and will provide an amazing environment for children to grow and develop, supported by the nursery team who have been specially selected and trained so they’ll feel like part of the extended family with parent priorities and children’s happiness front of mind.
We look forward to welcoming all of our little pioneers as they begin or continue their education and development journey.”
The opening forms part of The Midcounties Co-operative’s ambitious five-year growth plan that will see it bring the Little Pioneers brand to so many more communities across the country.
Parents at the new nursery can become a member of The Midcounties Co-operative, giving them a say in how it is run and access to exclusive deals and special offers from across its Your Co-op group of businesses as well as directly supporting good causes in their local community.
