The Counting House Nursery

Market Street

Inside The Counting House at Heckmondwike you will find a very welcoming and homely environment. We have separate children’s areas to accommodate all age ranges of children from 0 to 5 years of age.

There are 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.

In our Baby Room Care is taken to ensure that sleeping and feeding habits echo those at home and we provide a daily diary to record meals, sleeps, nappy changes and your baby’s activities and achievements. Your baby will enjoy experiencing new textures and sounds, rhymes, songs and stories and will enjoy plenty of fresh air in the nursery gardens.

The toddler room is a fun, sociable place where your child will have the space to become confident and independent. Toddlers are encouraged to investigate and experiment with new materials, sounds and movement both indoors and out.

The transition into pre-school is a very special milestone in your child’s development. Your child will have grown in confidence and ability and is now ready to develop all the skills needed for the new challenge of school. Your child will develop at their own pace; have fun; make friends; learning while they play, making good use of our wonderful natural outdoor areas.  They will be encouraged to be creative, explore, experiment and activities are planned through observing their individual interest and needs. Your child will learn the important social skills of sharing and cooperating, while building self-esteem and becoming competent with number and language.

Opening out from our wonderful conservatory to the rear of the building is a large, safe and enclosed play area and garden. The children easily forget they are in a town centre location!
