  • Our Childcare Approach

    Holyrood Nursery Swinton provides stimulating and inspiring childcare. We are passionate about quality Early Years Care and Education and recognise the importance of each child’s self-development. We believe that children learn through play, example, interaction and teaching. These four concepts form the core of our ethos and we strive to expand your child’s development through these methods. We help every child in every aspect of their growth and achieve this through praise, guidance and encouragement. Children will develop manners, learn to be kind, share, and respect others, as well as being stimulated creatively and mentally through our child-led activities. Our child-led activities allow our children to flourish into independent and confident individuals. Above all, we strive to provide a secure and friendly environment which will make you completely relaxed and at ease when leaving your child.

    Settling in procedure

    Your child will be settled into our nursery gradually to ensure a smooth transition. Our complimentary settling in sessions will last as long as your little one requires. We understand that every child is different and our aim is to make these sessions as flexible and comforting as possible to guarantee that both you and your child are happy. Once your child starts with us they will be assigned a designated key person. Your child's key person will be responsible for monitoring your child's development and will be your first point of contact at nursery. Your child's key person will always be available to discuss your child's progress.

  • Our Playrooms

    Our playrooms are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. Each playroom has access to outdoor play areas, offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning opportunities across all areas of the curriculum. A set of development records are held for each child in the nursery. These are available for viewing at all times and are continuously updated with pictures and observations made on your child's progress.
