Child's Play was established in 2001 and was formerly St. Matthew's Church Hall, which underwent a major refurbishment to meet recommendations by social services and Ofsted.

We obtained a GOOD from Ofsted in July 2023, to read the report please click here. Child's Play is a member of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA). The nursery is a registered day care provider by Ofsted and offer first class day-care for 47 children aged between 0 - 8 Years.

We feel that children learn to play so we offer lots of fun activities for the children to take part in which also help them to learn and develop. A development file is produced for each child showing the fun activities they have been taking part in. This is then linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is a curriculum from birth to school.

We have 12 level 3 qualified staff and also a qualified teacher. We also have a full time cook who prepares fresh meals on the premises daily. We have 5 stars for hygiene and a Gold healthy award from Kirklees for providing healthy meals.

  • We aim to provide a safe, secure, caring and stimulating environment where children's self confidence and esteem can grow.
  • To provide enjoyable activities where they can gain knowledge, life experience and be able to integrate with children of similar ages.
  • To provide a background which reflects and respects the various cultures and backgrounds in which people live.
  • To encourage self-respect, courtesy, politeness and to provide a natural transition from nursery life to school life to ensure that each child is well prepared for the national curriculum.
