About us

Here at Nightingales day nursery we have a huge range of expertise. Our main ethos is that our children learn through play and we we work in close partnership with parents in order to make sure children achieve their full potential through this.


The Nursery has been open since 1969 and currently employs 28 members of staff all of whom have qualified in early years and hold a paediatric first aid certificate. We are registered with Ofsted and can accomodate up to 82 children at any one time from age 10 weeks to 4 years 11 months. We typically open 7am – 7pm Monday to Friday (weekends by arrangement, conditions apply.)

We work closely with Bradford Early Years advisory team who support our staff with their training needs and audit our practise through the Early Years Quality Improvement Support Programme. Our last Ofsted inspection was in May 2011 when we were rated overall good with 6 areas of outstanding.


“Practitioners promote children’s learning with success overall as children move freely in a rich and stimulating child-orientated environment.The learning environment is fully inclusive, safe and secure, promoting children’s independence and their very good behaviour.” Click here to download the full Ofsted report.

We have an annual open day when you and your extended family are free to come and experience activities which are on offer to your child, and have a look around the nursery.
