Welcome Message


We are pleased to welcome you to our website for Harewood Centre Nursery School.

Harewood Nursery School and Pre-School opened in January 1977 and has always been a busy hub for the children of Pontefract. Although the building has remained the same on the outside, the nursery and pre-school have evolved over the years.

We have high standards and expectations and our children consistently do well here as all staff work hard to encourage the children to shine as unique individuals and to unlock their potential at this crucial phase at the beginning of their educational journey.

Harewood Nursery School is committed to Safeguarding and to promoting the welfare of all children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
