About Harewood Nursery

Harewood Nursery School opened in 1977 and enjoys an excellent reputation locally built up over the years.  It is a Local Authority School and is subject to the same educational standards and OFSTED inspection regime as other schools.

We offer high quality early years education and childcare, providing fun experiences within an attractive and enabling learning environment. We provide an appropriate balance between child-led and adult-directed learning experiences within the EYFS framework.

Our children go to a variety of schools in Pontefract and the surrounding areas when they leave us. We work hard to make sure our children are ready for the next stage in their education.

We follow the DFE’s ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’ to plan our curriculum to ensure we are setting the correct standard for the learning, development and care for all of the children at Harewood.

We use “Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)” and the “Birth to 5 Matters”  guidance which helps practitioners to understand and support each individual child’s development pathway.  This non-statutory guidance material supports practitioners in implementing the statutory requirements of the EYFS.
