Our Nursery in Barnsley

About Our Barnsley Nursery

Our Barnsley setting is spread over two units within one large unit our new extended The Baby House accommodating for 0-2 years. One large, spacious room for 2 – 5 years.

The Baby House

These are our youngest children and the emphasis in our baby house is one of love, warmth, and security in a stimulating environment. With a staff ratio of 1:3, our baby house is a cosy home from homeroom. Our staff are fully trained and knowledgeable and provide stimulating activities at the right level for the children. Your baby will be assigned their own key person in order that strong relationships can be built and a special understanding between the member of staff, yourself and baby can be developed. The contentment and happiness of your baby are paramount.

In our Baby House, we provide bright comfortable surroundings for the babies to play, rest and eat. The babies have every opportunity to roll, crawl, sit, climb, balance, reach and grasp, in this light and spacious room as well as a cuddle with a dedicated member of staff. All our activities are carefully planned to enhance the development of your child. The babies have their own special outdoor safe play area, which enhances their physical abilities as well as provides them with many more opportunities to experience the outside world.

All our meals are made fresh every day by our onsite cook, who makes sure the babies and children eat a well-balanced diet. We endeavour to cater for all faiths and allergies and menus are available for parents to see.

We are open 07:30 – 18:00 Monday to Friday
