Hi there – I’m Laura, the Assistant Deputy Manager of Welcome Nurseries @ Greetland Private Day Nursery.

Welcome to our nursery in Halifax, Yorkshire, a friendly place surrounded by beautiful outdoor spaces and filled with tight knit, loving staff. I hope this is the perfect find for your little one!

Parents choose us because of how well established we are in the local area, our low turnover of staff means that we have strong connections with everyone!

This nursery has a wonderful approach to play, offering a mixture of both child and adult led learning. Located just a short walk away from several parks and a beautiful woodland, we ensure that children head outdoors whatever the weather to explore.

Providing childcare for children aged new born to five years, we are proud of our wonderful nursery space, including our three separate playgrounds and newly refurbished baby room.

Situated within walking distance of local bus stops and complete with parking on site for staff and parents, we are also linked to nearby schools and offer a pick up system for our after school club.

What happens in a day in the life of a Nursery Manager?

What does a normal day involve for you?

My day starts early as we open at 07:30am and I like to ensure that I am on site when the children start to arrive. Staff and children arrive gradually between opening and 9am, so by 9am we like to have breakfast. I like to ensure that the children have a substantial breakfast to get them through the day and their various adventures! After toast, cereal and fruit we like to have story and circle time and to sing some songs. After all of this it’s time for both adult and child led play!

We always like to ensure that the children head outside whatever the weather as this can be a wonderful time for them to explore the outdoor playgrounds. I feel that it is important to follow the children’s own routine and to guide them softly throughout the day- from lunchtime and playtime through to snacks and naps.

Why do you love your job?

I love building up a relationship with the children because it really is wonderful to see them achieve every single day. I also love my job because of my connection with the rest of the staff, the nursery is such a nice friendly place to work in where everybody gets on. I love seeing the children develop and grow in confidence, especially the children who are unsettled when they start with us and once they begin to build relationships and begin to feel secure, they come in to nursery happily for the first time.

Why do parents love your nursery?

I think the parents love the nursery for the same reasons that I love it.

Parents agree that we offer a warm, welcoming and friendly environment for the children to enjoy each day. I feel that parents can sense stress or tension in a nursery visit as they are on the look out for the perfect place for their child. At our nursery, tension melts away, we are so proud of our gentle and supportive atmosphere.

What are your favourite hobbies outside of work?

I love cooking in my spare time and before lockdown I really enjoyed going out for meals. I am also a mum to my four year old so I like to spend my time heading out on adventures with him too.

FAQ's

How do I book a place for my child?

If you would like to book a place for your child, please fill out the enquiry form, we will then get in touch with you to discuss your interest further.

Are all staff DBS (CRB/police) checked and first aid trained?

All our staff have an enhanced DBS check, this is our way of ensuring quality and safety in our team. All our staff are also paediatric first aid trained and fully aware of the correct action to take in an emergency. We understand that safety is your primary concern – it is ours too.

My child has special educational needs, can they still attend?

Yes, we are happy to discuss any specific requirements you might have regarding SENDCo for your child, working to provide the best possible experience for your little one. We follow the layout of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), a government approved structure for the development and learning of all children aged newborn to five years. Along these lines, we deliver a full range of activities for your little ones, aimed at boosting their communication and aiding them in new discoveries daily. 

Testimonials:

We have both of our daughters here and they both absolutely love it! The staff are nothing but friendly and very accommodating! Several things I have found useful are forms explaining the breakdown in fees for various options of childcare (especially if your child is eligible for funding), which I would have struggled to calculate myself. I tend to work flexible days but this nursery has been truly understanding and allows me to book sessions as work demands – a rarity! They also offer online access to your child’s accounts, letting you know what they have been up to during the day. We are really pleased with the staff and service at this lovely nursery!

My two children aged 1 and 3 both attend this nursery and they both love it. The staff are very friendly and always happy to talk about what the children have been doing each day. There have been times when my children have cried when I’ve gone to pick them up as they didn’t want to leave. I would be happy to recommend this place to anyone!
