Denby Dale First & Nursery School


 We are currently offering Funded Education places for children aged 3 years, 15hrs a week, or can be topped up to 30hrs (if eligible) to start April 2021.

Our lively and engaging nursery classroom is suitable for children aged between 3 and 4 years of age. The children in Nursery have the freedom to move between our messy craft area, the spacious outdoors and our main Nursery classroom, giving the children the skills and confidence to make choices and engage in independent learning.

The sessions that we offer provide families with the flexibility to take their funded sessions in a number of ways. Sessions can be taken in the morning, afternoon or across the day between 7.30-6pm. For those children that access their funding across the day, meals are included at an additional cost.

Learning through play continues to be the main focus in our Nursery classroom. Our experienced staff build the children’s individual interests and next steps into the carefully planned activities that are on offer every day, providing the children with enriched learning experiences that ensure progress across the curriculum.

"All staff are welcoming to parents and there is a genuine warmth towards the children."

Over the coming half term the Nursery children will be focusing on change. They will have the opportunity to join in with gardening activities and plant their own vegetables. The children will also be looking at the life cycle of a butterfly. The class will have their own caterpillars to observe the transformation first hand!
