We know that choosing the right care for your child can be a very difficult decision. We always recommend visiting a setting for yourself, but our Ofsted reports help to give you an independent overview of the quality of childcare we offer.
We are very proud to announce that Nidderdale Nursery has be awarded an Outstanding grading from Ofsted. Our smaller nursery, The School House at Pannal, had an inspection in August 2017 and we are pleased to say was awarded Good in all areas. You can download a copy of the reports for Nidderdale and The School House from the link opposite.
At Woodlands, Western and Hookstone Kids’ Clubs, we have been re-registered due to change of company status (but still delivering exactly the same provision) and we have met all requirements completely. However, we are currently awaiting an Ofsted inspection which will grade the service we are providing. Previous Ofsted inspection reports are available on request.
All our Nurseries and Kids’ Clubs are equipped with a wide range of equipment and activities with all ages and abilities in mind. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework guidelines and recognise that children develop at their own rates and in their own ways. We follow the children’s interest and provide resources, opportunities and motivation for their next steps.
Most of all we create a secure and happy environment in which a child can express individual characteristics and achieve their full potential through purposeful play, developing self confidence, self discipline and independence.
