Nursery and Preschools


The Pavilion, Calf Cl, Haxby, York YO32 3NX, UK – 01904 765005

My daughter attended between the ages of 2 years and 4 years and 10 months ( September baby ) The experience has been fantastic .Having worked with early years myself previously I have to say I held a lot of concerns. This nursery is rare in that it really cares as much about emotional health as educational achievement. Far to many nurseries are obsessed with tick box exercises. Theresa's ethos is that if play is encouraged a child will learn . My daughter was never keen on sitting down to learn , would run off - refuse point blank ! The nursery worked with her , thought of ways to encourage without been pushy . She started school excited and enthusiastic . I'm happy to say she is doing fantastic at school and a year ahead in reading .I believe had they not had such a child centered approach and followed her lead she wouldn't be as she is now she was also very difficult to potty train - again they were nothing but fantastic . A truely wonderful nursery.

My daughter has been at this Nursery since she was 9 months & goes to school in September. She loves it & I have had to promise she can go to the holiday club there when she starts school as she doesn't want to leave. The staff are all approachable & helpful. There is a family atmosphere amongst staff. The new manager Hannah has really taken on the role well, the nursery is well organised & from previously being a nursery nurse there, she knows the children well & this shows in the communication to parents. I would recommend this nursery to anyone. My daughter is always happy to go.

My 2 year old and (only child) goes to First steps. I was very nervous and apprehensive about leaving him with strangers. All for nothing! The people here are AMAZING! Lovely and completely put me at ease. Every single member of staff has made an effort with my son and I couldn't be happier. Since attending, he's really come out of his shell and become a new little boy. He's SO EXCITED for nursery days!!!! Thank you!

If you don’t get your JIMMY NEUTRON looking HEADASS outta my FACE.

A wonderful school, it might not have the look of a fancy new build but it's what is inside that counts! The staff are fantastic, and well led by John Tomsett who comes across as a very dedicated head teacher. The students were welcoming and very sociable, a delight to meet.
