Wise Owls settles in to the Braywick Leisure Centre in unsettling times
When Tanya Galitzine, founder of Wise Owls Childcare celebrated her new childcare Nursery in the heart of Maidenhead 18-months ago, the last thing she saw coming was a global pandemic.
Wise Owls Childcare, situated in the newly developed Braywick Leisure Centre in Maidenhead, stepped in to save the day in 2019 when Pixies Nursery was set to close in the Magnet Leisure Centre.
“The transition has been anything but smooth sailing with Covid-19, but I have been operating my childcare business for over 20 years so we just had to get on with it to make it a success. Despite the impact of the virus, many families still depended on us so it was important for us to maintain a high quality childcare service.
Keeping the experienced team from Pixies Day Nursery has been a real blessing as they are an exceptional team of carers and they’ve brought their own passion and love for childcare to the table”, says Tanya.
Wise Owls operates an affordable and convenient day nursery catering for children aged 8 weeks – 5 years old from 7:45am-6:15pm. The Nursery boasts brand new, top quality facilities and resources with a climbing castle, enclosed garden, dedicated messy play areas, treasure baskets, sand and water play and much more in a nurturing, homely environment. Come rain or shine, children at Wise Owls get to enjoy a daily walk in the nature park on their doorstep.
“I am so excited to finally own a Day Nursery in Maidenhead, it’s been a dream of mine for over 20 years. I love it, it’s unique, it’s cosy and just like a ‘home away from home’. I look forward to when we can welcome families into the nursery to see our wonderful space for themselves. We have other childcare facilities in and around Maidenhead that complement a child’s progression through early years and primary school.”
