Quarry Brow is based in a local primary school in an area that has been purposely adapted to allow a full day care provision to operate. The nursery is privately managed and run, in line with Ofsted requirements.
The building is an intimate setting with only three rooms, one specifically for babies and toddlers, one for children aged between two and three and a room focused on pre-school education, with these two rooms having open access to each other. Quarry Brow also has use of a separate room, away from the nursery based in the school, which they lease for their After-School Club and Holiday Club for children aged 5 – 11 years.
The nursery is Ofsted registered so has set requirements that must be adhered to, ensuring the children receive excellent care and education in a safe and secure environment, the Ofsted report is available to read on the Ofsted website. The nursery is also registered on both the early years register and the childcare register as children over five are cared for. We are registered to offer both free 15 hour provision to two year olds and 15 0r 30 hour provision for three year olds.
