About us

Dedicated to providing child-care and education since 1896 and conveniently situated on the main Halifax road overlooking the picturesque Shibden Valley, our spacious schoolhouse has been especially designed and remodelled to create a warm, homely, loving and nurturing environment for your 21st century child.

We have worked very hard to provide the highest quality nursery facilities, which will be appreciated by discerning parents when choosing a nursery for their child. As with all other nurseries we are OFSTED approved but at Shibden Head we regard this as a starting point not a goal, our policy of continual improvement in partnership with our parents and staff will ensure that our quality of service is the best available.

All our children’s areas are secure, self-contained and have facilities for your child’s needs. Our fabulous outdoor play area and garden give the children a chance to explore and become aware of their own environment.

Whilst in our care children are able to participate in our fun packed daily routine with a wide variety of play and learning experiences, ensuring your child has the opportunity to develop skills to their full potential.

Three meals a day are provided with snacks in between. All the food is prepared and cooked in our nursery kitchen by our cook. Menus have been designed to provide a healthy, nutritious balanced diet and special dietary requirements will be catered for.

Shibden Head services and facilities are designed with busy working parents in mind, to ensure the best of care and mitigate the rush at the start and end of the day.
