Borrowby Nursery School is situated in the grounds of Knayton C of E School, just 2 miles north of Thirsk and 4 miles from Northallerton. Borrowby Nursery School provides full day care for children from 2-11yrs old. We cater for up to 24 children each day and receive Government funding for 3 and 4 year olds and some 2 year olds where eligible. We also accept childcare vouchers such as Busy Bees and others.
The owner and manager is Linda Chapman, a former childminder and qualified Early Years Professional with over 18 years experience working within the Early Years setting. All of the staff are highly qualified and their ongoing professional development is one of our many strengths. Every child is assigned a key worker who undertakes detailed assessments of each child’s progress. This gives us a very clear picture of how each individual child is doing and enables us to give concise feedback to parents and carers. In addition a daily diary is provided for every child which provides information about the child’s day at nursery school.
We strongly believe that children should develop at a pace that suits them and we provide an environment that facilitates learning through investigation, exploration, conversation and imagination. Our children learn to care for each other and the natural world through a curriculum that is based on children’s play and is delivered in a flexible mix of child led and adult led activities. Outdoor learning plays a key role in our curriculum as we encourage children to gain awareness and respect for their environment.
Borrowby Nursery School provides a happy and purposeful environment for children to enjoy imaginative play, creative learning and have plenty of fun.
We are pleased to offer Stay and Play on a Thursday morning. This session is open to all children under 5 (including babies and toddlers) and their parents/carers and runs from 9.30am to 11.30am at a cost of £3.
