Elmscot Hale Day Nursery & Nursery School Promoting a healthy lifestyle in a safe, secure environment

Welcome to Elmscot Hale Day Nursery & Nursery School

Elmscot Hale Day Nursery and Nursery School is located on Bankhall Lane in Hale.

Our ‘Ofsted Outstanding’ nursery is located in a large Grade II listed farm house in the green belt.  Built in the late 1600s as Bank Hall, Elmscot Hale used to have a moat and 98 acres! Today the characterful Hale nursery offers large grounds and play areas surrounded by fields to two sides which lead to the Bollin River.  Our idyllic location enables much of our time to be spent outdoors, in our large garden, the local park or the Cheshire countryside, which is literally on our doorstep.  We share magical experiences, such as riding the pirate ship, creating a woodland musical or Forest school, developing children’s confidence, wellbeing and love of the natural world.

Our child-led active learning environment stimulates little imaginations.  Extensive play resources excite and inspire children to play and learn together or independently.  With an abundance of adventures and experiences including music, dance, art, design, cooking, sport and imaginative play, every child can learn naturally through enjoyment, play and socialising with others.

We nurture life-long learners with the creativity to grow and adapt, whatever the future holds.  Our curriculum is developed by qualified early years’ teachers following the EYFS framework, ensuring that learning is fun, rewarding and effective.  Our highly qualified team use creative approaches indoors and out to develop key skills such as numeracy, literacy, or fine motor skills, working towards school readiness.

Adapting to new settings can be challenging.  Our award-winning team offer incredible warmth and understanding to the little ones in our care and their families.  Children are individually supported to reach their full potential, with activities tailored to their stage and learning style, nurturing confidence and happiness. As the most important people in their child’s life, our parents are closely involved with parent sessions, weekly menus, news and achievements and daily updates from their child’s key worker via the Tapestry app.

The children’s award-winning food is prepared using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.  Our menus, approved by a registered dietician, are both healthy and expose the children to the most amazing foods and flavours.

There is a large car park for your convenience.

The nursery is registered for 75 children.

Hale’s Outstanding OFSTED Report – 2016 – ‘Children arrive excited and are extremely happy‘, ‘All aspects of teaching are outstanding‘, ‘Staff are wonderful role models
