Welcome to Hirst Wood Nursery School & Children’s Centre. We value confidence, independence and creativity and experiential learning through purposefully planned play. Everyone at Hirst Wood is valued and every child deserves the very best education. My colleagues and I are totally committed to working in partnership with children and families to extend children’s knowledge and understanding. We are here for you and your child; our aim is to work in partnership to ensure that the learning journey is a special and exciting one – one which will create lasting memories and a drive to know more about the world around them. We are inclusive in all that we do and our learning community is based on the celebration of both similarities and difference and we place high importance on respecting each another. There are no invisible children here.
We have an amazing learning environment that includes a wilderness garden where children have the opportunity to experience the Forest School. We offer a range of enticing and motivating experiences for children both indoors and outdoors to develop their sense of awe and wonder that enables them to take pleasure in exploring and investigating the world around them. Our curriculum is built on a constructivist approach, with children building their own curriculum through our wonderfully enticing and enabling environment. We support children in their delight in discovering and experiencing the world around them which we hope will develop into a lifelong love of learning.
We will shortly be looking at our Easter 2020 intake so if your child is 3 between now and 31st March 2020 do come and look around the Nursery. We offer the free 15 NEF hours in a variety of ways and also the 30 hours for eligible families. Our provision is not only led by very experienced, enthusiastic teachers and Nursery Nurses but alongside this we also have a before and after school club called 'The Sunshine Club' which offers paid for additional sessions. Please make an appointment to come and have a look around our fantastic purpose built historical building in the beautiful world heritage site of Saltaire. Every day is an open day – come and take a look.
