About Us

About Us

Our nursery provides a stimulating and welcoming environment full of natural and open ended resources for your child to explore. Our environment is a homely feel which offers cosy corners and a calming atmosphere. We follow the Hygge approach which enhances the homely feel we offer. We also have a beautiful outdoor area to allow children to explore different resources and get creative. This includes a mud kitchen, water and sand, bikes , balance beams,  and lots more! 

We are just outside the heart of Whitby town, situated on the site of Stakesby Primary Academy. We often explore our local community by going on trips to Pannett Park and the Library. 

We run 7:45-6 Monday to Friday 51 weeks a year and offer different sessions to work around your families needs. 

Our Curriculum 

We have created an ambitious, varied and engaging curriculum for our nursery. Our curriculum takes into consideration the needs of the children present, it places specific emphasis on developing children’s communication and language skills, and life skills, this is adapted to each individual child’s needs within our care. We have particular focus on developing children’s personal, social and emotional development, ensuring children learn how to form friendships, how to express their emotions, and how to become independent. Our curriculum provides outstanding education at such an early stage and we provide the highest quality teaching to prepare children for their next chapter in life at school.
