An Enriching Outstanding Nursery in Kirkby

Welcome to our Ofsted 'Outstanding' nursery in Kirkby, where our exceptional team delivers the best learning and care for little ones aged 3 months to 5 years.

Rooms to Nurture and Inspire

We have four bright and spacious age-specific rooms, each of which has been lovingly crafted into an inspiring and stimulating environment with everything your child needs to aid their development in all areas.

To ensure your little one is ready to start school, preschoolers take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure to maths, reading, writing and other essential skills they need to get ready for their next big adventure. Your little learner will also be taught by our qualified preschool teacher and enjoy the use of our ICT equipment.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress, whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Exciting Outdoor Space

In our recently refurbished all-weather garden, your little explorer will love taking part in a range of stimulating activities, as well as enjoying the garden during free play.

With trikes and bikes, gardening, a bug hotel, arts and crafts, a mud kitchen, a reading corner, an outdoor water play area and lots of other exciting resources, there is so much for them to discover.

Be a Part of Their Nursery Experience

At our Kirkby nursery, we like to involve parents as much as possible, and we're proud of our strong relationships with the families at the nursery.

We hold parents' evenings twice a year, which gives you the chance to speak in-depth with your child's key person. You'll also enjoy regular 'stay and play' evenings, where you can experience with your child all the fun activities they get up to while at nursery.
