First Steps Nursery York

Stirling Rd, York YO30 4TU, UK – 01904 693007

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!

Little Acorns

Hartrigg Oak/Lucombe Way, York YO32 4DS, UK – 01904 766866

Little Acorns is an absolutely fantastic nursery. It's clean, the staff are outstanding, it has great resources, is compliant and provides a healthy, friendly and welcoming atmosphere for young children. Having seen other nurseries in the area, Little Acorns stands out head and shoulders above the rest in terms of quality, hygiene and care for the kids. I had reservations about sending my daughter to a nursery, but now I am calling the team begging them to take my second child! I can't praise the nursery, and staff, highly enough.


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.

Wigginton Rd, York YO32 2RH, UK – 07516 995988

My daughter has been having group lessons here every week for just over a year now and has recently started having private lessons once a week alongside the group lessons. All the staff are friendly, helpful, positive and patient. Would definitely recommend for anybody from complete beginners, to those who are already confident and competent riders.

I gifted my horse to here and she loves it with all her pals. Lol.

Wigginton Recreation Hall

It's a village hall. Pretty much like every other village hall. Can't work out how to rate it. Pleasant enough hence the 5 stars.

Hired for a kids party, loads of room for the kids to charge around and also a side room of a massive side for the eating part.
