About Todwick Early Years

Todwick Early Years is a free-flow, free-choice nursery that offers care and learning opportunities for 2, 3 and 4 year old’s.

Our main concern is for the happiness and development of your child.  We believe that every child should feel secure, safe and happy.  We provide a friendly, safe and stimulating environment where this can be achieved.

Once your child is settled into nursery he/she will be assigned a key person. Your child will have their own folder where special work and photos will be kept, along with their learning journey; this will go home when your child leaves for school. 

Your child’s development will be observed and tracked and planning will be put in place on a weekly rota to suit the needs and interests of your child. 

We offer a healthy balance of free-flow play, group, one-to-one activities and direct learning, both indoors and out.

For those attending Todwick Primary School, we work with the FS2 teacher in relation to school readiness and ensuring a successful transition process for you and your child.

Admission to school is determined by RMB school admissions policy
