Little People Stanningley, our first Nursery, is located down a secluded drive, accessed from Bradford Road in Stanningley. The building is a stunning Edwardian Manor House which has been converted into a warm homely environment where your Little Person can flourish. 

The nursery is sectioned into age ranges, children move throughout these rooms as and when they are ready for the next challenge, rather than as they reach a birthday, so we can be flexible to meet their individual needs. 

We follow the Early Years Framework (EYFS) to ensure your child is well supported and making good progress in all areas of learning and development. Every child is unique and will develop at their own pace. It has been well researched that children make the best progress when in an environment which is nurturing and offers a sense of security offering challenges which are appropriate to their age/stage of development.

Each of our rooms is specifically organised to reflect the age range of the children for which it caters and provide them with a range of equipment, activities and learning experiences which will support them in becoming inquisitive, interested and motivated learners.

We have a cosy Baby and Toddler room, run by mature experienced staff, who ensure that your Little Person, and you, feel secure and happy when they are in our care. They will support you and your child with your individual routine, sleep patterns, feeding etc. We consider ourselves lucky not to have to rely on pre-prepared jars of baby food. Our Nursery Cook prepares home-cooked meals for your child’s individual stage of weaning.

We ask that you supply your preferred milk for your baby. Please do not pre-make your babies bottles as they can harbour bacteria, just bring along the bottles your baby prefers and the formula milk and we will prepare each feed as and when required. Breast milk, does not harbour bacteria so you can express and bring the bottles pre-prepared, or even frozen. If you wish to express on site you are welcome to use our staff room or Nursery office. When your child is confidently mobile and keen to explore they may be ready to move on to Toddlers.

Our Tweenie room concentrates on the new skills your child is developing now they are toddling around and exploring everything. We focus on the move from the high chair to the more social baby sized table and the children enjoy a full Nursery Menu prepared by our cook. Our staff eat Nursery meals with the children which give them the opportunity to model good manners at the table and demonstrate self-feeding in a fun and supportive way. Nap patterns normally alter in this room, one of the room becomes a sleep room after lunch, so the children can have an undisturbed nap after a busy morning on children’s beds. The children have their own labelled pump bag with bedding and any comforters they need for a nice rest.     

Our Tweenie staff are full of energy and enthusiastically encourage the children to throw themselves into a wide range of exciting activities. Lots of group activities to encourage sharing, lots of sensory activities to promote development and a huge array of messy fun!

Once settled your child may now be ready to begin a very exciting milestone…Potty Training! Our experienced team can help make this a rewarding and enjoyable experience for you and your child. The potty will already be familiar to them and our team celebrate each little success with enthusiasm so in usually just a few weeks carrying around a huge nappy bag will be a thing of the past. 

As your child starts to get nearer to starting 'Big School' they are full of energy, enthusiasm with a thirst for learning. Our dedicated staff ensure their development is enhanced and nurtured at every level. Our staff plan activities for individual and as a group to enhance the children’s development across all areas; Physical, Personal, Social and Emotional, Communication and Language, Creativity, Literacy, Mathematics and Knowledge and Understanding of the World.

At this age children love to share events that have happened at home and we link our activities around your child’s interests. So, if their favourite TV show is Pirates please share this with your Key Person as they will love making pirate ships and treasure maps. If you enjoy a trip to the farm please tell us, we have lots of ideas around Animals and Life Cycles.

This room also provides 'wrap-around' care for children who attend Westroyd School Nursery sessions. 

The nursery boasts a wonderful spacious outdoor play area. The gardens have been designed to allow the whole nursery to be outside at the same time, in separate areas, meaning if your child is an outdoor learner there is nothing to hold them back. It is our policy to encourage children to access the outdoor environment at their will, which we call ‘Free Flow’, older children are asked where they would like to play. The downstairs rooms have direct access to the outdoor area so that the children can access the outdoor environment as they choose and the staff simply move with them. 

Westroyd Funclub is based in our Out-Of-School room at Little People Stanningley,offering before and after school care for children attending Westroyd Primary School, and a school holiday club, open to all schools.
