Welcome to Elland Children’s Centre Nursery
Our nursery at Elland Children’s Centre provides children with the best start in life. We pride ourselves on the nurturing environment that we provide for children, with caring enthusiastic staff that are experienced and qualified.
We provide excellent daycare and early education for babies and children in an exciting and stimulating environment. Learning is always fun at Elland Children’s Centre Nursery meaning that children develop to their full potential with the support and encouragement of dedicated staff. We have an Ofsted rating of ‘good’ and endeavour to achieve outstanding.
Our nursery is purpose built and boasts a cosy, homely baby room for our under 2’s to investigate and explore and a spacious, well-resourced room for the 2 to 5 year olds with access to an exciting outdoor space to play. Furthermore, our team of exceptional early year’s practitioners have been hand-picked due their passion for supporting children to reach their full potential through ongoing encouragement and praise.
We operate a key person system within the nursery which means that your child will be allocated a member of staff who, as their main carer, will be responsible for developing a close relationship with them so that they feel cherished, secure and content whilst they are with us. Parents also benefit from this as they have a regularly point of contact for any questions or concerns and are kept informed and involved at all times. Parents/carers will be provided with daily information of their child’s activities, such as how much they have eaten, what their mood have been like, which friends they have played with throughout the day – all those little moments that parents want to hear about!
There are no hidden charges at Elland Children’s Centre Nursery, we don’t charge a retainer fee or for days when the nursery is closed i.e. training days and Christmas. All meals are included (breakfast, lunch, tea, snacks and drinks).
Early Education Funding
We offer free Early Education Funding sessions for eligible 2 year olds and all 3 year olds. These sessions can be stand-alone set sessions or incorporated into your child’s day if you are already paying fees to attend.
Why not come and see us and meet the team? You are welcome to just drop by or phone and make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

At Elland Children’s Centre Nursery we believe that healthy children are happy children and that is why we source our meals from Elland J, I & N School, who provide nutritionally balanced and varied menus for all our children.
The menus are changed on a regular basis.
Children are encouraged to try everything that’s on offer and self-serve at lunch times.
We also cater for children with special dietary requirements.

What is Early Essence?
It is an online tool to record all our Children’s Centres use to record children’s development and produce assessments that are shared with parents.
Parents are able to securely log in online to access their child’s individual learning journey. Details of how to do this will be given to parents at the point of registration.
Within the learning journey parents are able to see picture, observations and video clips which are uploaded by Children’s Centre staff. They are also able to upload picture, video’s and comments to support their child’s learning and development at home.
If you are a parent whose child attends one of our nurseries you are able to access Early Essence using the following link. You will need your own personal log in details to do this.
