Welcome to Todwick Early Years!
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 RELATED RESTRICTIONS, OUR NURSERY IS RUNNING SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TO COINCIDE WITH GOVERMNET GUIDELINES. WE HOPE TO BE BACK TO NORMAL VERY SOON! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITIATE TO CONTACT US. WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE OUR PROVISION AS THE PANDEMIC PROGRESSES AND NEW GUIDANCE IS RELEASED.
Todwick Early Years is a nursery and Kids Club located in the heart of Todwick, situated on school grounds next to the village hall. Located near to the A57 and M1, this means its great for both local and commuting parents alike.
Our Kids Club is also very beneficial for working parents/carers, providing wrap-around care. We offer a safe, stimulating environment where your child can relax and have fun before and after school hours. It gives children the chance to meet up with school friends without feeling like they are in school all day! We have plentiful activities and resources to keep your child entertained and happy, whilst still offering educational experiences and chances to catch up on homework. We have effective strategies in place to ensure your child enters and leaves Todwick Primary School safely and appropriately.
Our singled-roomed nursery holds 27 children in one session and offers places for 2, 3 and 4 year old’s five days a week, term-time only.
Being in one room offers plentiful experiences whereby the younger children learn from the older children and the older children help take care of younger ones. All resources within nursery are accessible which allows children of all ages to follow their individual needs and become independent and confident.
With six permanent members of staff working every day, children have consistency and familiar faces on a regular basis. Its great for us and even better for the children as we are able to build strong bonds with the children and parents, enhancing their nursery experience.
We are a small nursery with a close-knit, family-like environment. Something that we pride ourselves on.
When it comes to OFSTED, our 2019 rating was ‘GOOD’ with our strengths being:
