Hello and welcome to Harwood Children’s Day Nursery. We are a small, homely 36 place private day nursery in the centre of Harwood in Bolton, providing care and education for babies and children from the age of six weeks up until they start primary school. We are open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday throughout the year, just closing on the Bank Holidays and for three days in between Christmas and New Year.

We provide a safe and stimulating environment, where children have constant access to high quality provision and are cared for by qualified, mature and experienced staff, the majority of which have been with us for between ten and sixteen years.

Children in our care receive support and encouragement in all aspects of their development, helping them to achieve their full potential educationally, socially, physically and emotionally. Our aim is to give them the best possible start in life, to have fun, thrive and develop according to their individual needs and abilities. Children learn through play and are given the opportunity to learn and grow through carefully chosen toys, resources and activities. Working in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage, all children are respected as individuals and learn to be confident, competent and very happy.

We aim to ensure that all children feel happy and content so that they have the confidence to explore their surroundings and to learn and develop across all areas of the Early Years Curriculum. Both our indoor and outdoor environments are equipped with an array of objects, resources and equipment to enable children to be active, independent learners.

We pride ourselves on having a warm and welcoming nursery. We aim to provide the right combination of learning opportunities in a happy and fun way, enhancing your child's unique personality whilst providing motivation and encouragement. Building on their strengths and abilities, ultimately moving on from nursery well rounded, confident and ready for primary school.

We received a judgement of Outstanding by Ofsted in our last two Ofsted inspections. You can access the latest report below.
