The Counting House Nursery

Smithies Moor Lane

Inside The Counting House at Birstall (which was once an old chapel!) you will find a vibrant and engaging nursery. Our light and airy rooms accommodate all age ranges of children from 0 to 5 years of age.

There are separate rooms for babies (0-2 years), toddlers (2-3 years) and pre-school children (3-5 years). Ensuring that they are able to spend lots of quality time with children of a similar age.

From the new born baby to the inquisitive toddler, the rooms have been specifically planned to allow each child to feel safe and secure in the Nursery environment, so allowing them to gain in confidence at this very important stage of a child’s development.

We place great importance on allowing the children to develop their foundation skills of language, literacy and numeracy as well as gaining the confidence to do things for themselves. Interacting with other like-minded children also develops their social skills and often sees the beginning of some wonderful friendships!

To the rear of the building is a large, safe and enclosed play area and garden.

We believe strongly in allowing children the opportunity to play, work and interact as much as possible outdoors and as such we have policy of allowing sessions of Continuous Outdoor Play. This is a time when children can come and go inside or outside as they please, making their own choices and decisions under supervision of our Nursery staff at all times.

We allow children access to the outdoors every day and activities take place in all weathers. The outdoor areas in our nursery have been specially designed and imaginatively resourced with physical activity resources, vegetable beds, dens, Wendy houses, sand pits and natural areas.

Also at the rear of the Nursery is a separate large car parking area, allowing parents to drop-off and pick-up in a safe manner.
