Barncliffe Day Nursery is a small friendly OFSTED registered nursery that opened in the summer of 2012.  We are set in a converted mill with the stunning surroundings of the countryside within the heart of Shelley village.


Here at Barncliffe Day Nursery we offer a high standard of care for children from birth to five years old, in a warm and caring environment which provides stimulating choices to encourage your child’s development in all areas.  At Barncliffe Day Nursery your child will be given opportunities to make their own choices, decisions and learning experiences through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.


As children learn through play we have created an environment where the children feel happy, safe and valued.  Children, with the encouraging support from our friendly nursery nurses, can explore, investigate and be creative.  This enables the children to develop and make progress at their own pace, enabling them to fulfil their potential.


At Barncliffe Day Nursery we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents/carers to ensure your child’s individual needs are understood and met, as every child in our setting is seen as an individual.  We work with the families that attend our setting for the well-being of all the children.


Our latest OFSTED report was held on 4.2.2014 and we achieved a GOOD report.  You can read the whole report here.
