Play, Learn and Grow

Thank you very much for showing an interest in Brougham Street Nursery School and Childcare.

Brougham Street Nursery School is unique  in North Yorkshire as it is a Maintained Nursery School with all year round full day Childcare situated close to the centre of the market town of Skipton - the Gateway to the Dales. Our setting is bright, warm and welcoming for our pupils, their parents and the community.

We cater for children aged 0 to 4 years old and firmly believe that these first years of life are the most important and where children gain their thirst and enthusiasm for learning.

We know that choosing a Nursery for your child is a very important decision for any parent to make. We understand how important your children are to you and endeavor to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for your children to enjoy their first steps of learning. We aim to help to make this process easy and are here to work with you all to support the development of happy and confident children.

We are fortunate to have modern spacious facilities set in the heart of Skipton Children’s Centre.  Our outdoor areas provide a fantastic learning resource which children access independently and freely throughout the day and in all weathers.

Our staff and Governors are talented, dedicated and caring as they work hard to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere where children are encouraged to be confident, self-disciplined, creative and motivated to learn. We have an 'Open Door' policy so we can all share this ethos with you. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that every child develops to their potential and is ‘Ready for School at the end of their time with us. We would very much encourage you to arrange a time to visit us when you will be able to meet the children and staff at work and play in the special place that it is each and every day - a welcoming, caring and happy place to be. 

If you need more information about Brougham Street Nursery School  or clarification of any details on our website, please come and see us or give us a call. We would be really delighted to show you around so that you can experience BSNS for yourselves.

Whether your children already attend or you are considering sending your child here, we hope you will find the information on our website both useful and inspiring - we are proud of our setting and want to share it with you.
