The Environment at Almond House Nursery, Huddersfield.

Rooms at Almond House Nursery

The dedicated rooms here at Almond House were purpose built with helping your child develop, to the best of their abilities, at the forefront of our minds. The three age brackets, the Under Twos (0 - 2 years), the Tweenies (2 - 3 years) and the Pre-school (3 - 5 years) help stimulate your child and ensure they engage in social activity throughout their time at this Huddersfield nursery.

Babies (0 - 2 years)

Our baby room at this Huddersfield based nursery provides a homely, stimulating environment for the youngest children we take care of. Our professionally qualified staff are passionate about childcare and will provide a high level of individualised care for your baby, ensuring they feel happy, safe and secure with us. With this very young age group the ratio of staff to babies is one member of staff to three.

Tweenies (2 - 3 years)

Our spacious 'Tweenie' room at Almond House is the next step for your little learners. Reading, singing, dancing, structured and free play are all focuses of this room. Toilet training and table manners are also key points on the agenda and are developed through praise and encouragement.

Our main aim is to ensure that children are happy, settled and form good relationships, giving them a solid base for their early year's development going forward. This age group also has a high ratio of one practitioner for every four Tweenies. This offers children more interaction with a member of staff, enabling children to develop through structured and free play.

Pre-school (3 - 5 years)

Social skills, literacy and numeracy are the focus for the children in our pre-school unit at Almond House Nursery, Huddersfield.

As well as learning about numbers and language, pre-school children are encouraged to explore their world. We also hold special events throughout the year, such as the Christmas party, to introduce your child to special festivals and cultures.

Pre-school is led by the energetic and inspiring Hannah, who is currently completing a degree in Early Years.

Hannah and her team of highly qualified and caring educators, including an Early Years Teacher, prepare your child for school by supporting them to be independent and instilling in them a love of learning.

Rachel's School of Cookery

Each month, Rachel's school of cookery comes to Almond House. Your child will adore spending time with our talented chef, Rachel, and creating dishes such as leek and potato soup, salmon and broccoli fishcakes and spinach and sweet potato curry. With Rachel's skilful tutoring, your child will learn about where their food comes from and how diet contributes to a healthy lifestyle.

Outdoor Play

At Almond House, children benefit from access to extensive outdoor areas.

Through regularly spending time in a natural, outdoor environment, your child will build upon their self-esteem and confidence, improve their ability to engage and work together with others and show improved creative skills and emotional resilience. Play based, child-led learning in a natural environment has been proven to have a highly positive impact on children's cognitive skills and lead to higher academic achievement.

"We are really happy we found Almond House. The staff were brilliant with our eldest, who was very shy and didn't like leaving us. They followed her personal interests and devised activities based around musicals for her and this really helped her to settle in. She made lots of progress in the time she was at Almond House especially with recognising letters and numbers. Amelia definitely benefitted from the individual attention provided by the staff."

- Marie, mother of Amelia
