Children 1st @ Sheffield

Children 1st @ Sheffield has been confirmed as ‘Good with areas of Outstanding’ by Ofsted. It is within Sheffield city centre, with fantastic access to local bus routes. The nursery has been beautifully refurbished throughout; with bright, open areas for babies, toddlers, Early Years and out-of-school children, from 0 – 12 years.

The friendly, enthusiastic staff are all fully trained and very experienced, and our staff to children ratios are even better than Ofsted recommend, so you can be sure of the very best care for your child. The nursery provides a fantastic nursery school environment, with the added experience that comes with a designated Early Years Practitioner, and also offers fully grant funded places for children aged 3 and 4 years.

Outside there is a fabulous garden designed to maximise the potential for outdoor play, with carefully chosen, age-specific equipment. Children are encouraged to choose their own activity with a huge variety of options both in- and outside. The nursery also provides plenty of extra opportunities, including Funky Feet dance classes from age 2 – 5 years, French for 3 – 5’s and a Sports Skills class with Sheffield Wednesday community coaches which is hugely popular!

Staff would be delighted to show you and your child around and answer any questions you may have.

Review of Children 1st @ Sheffield

Excellent nursery. My son started at 9 months old and from day one we were reassured by the professional attitude and actions of the staff. Facilities are excellent and you couldn't want for a better environment for your child to be cared for in. The staff are all friendly, personable and above all really care and build bonds with your child.

Review of Children 1st @ Sheffield

My daughter attends Children 1st three days a week and loves it. This is, I am sure, a testament to the fantastic staff there who are friendly, helpful and caring. They all greet each child by name, whether in their group or not. The equipment and activities are varied and age-appropriate in each room, and the whole environment is bright and kept very clean. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Review of Children 1st @ Sheffield

Very good staff who are all well trained, polite and friendly. Nursery environment is safe, self contained and stimulating. It introduces good habits to children, like eating together, sitting down for group time, sharing, doing small chores like tidying up. Lots of activities during the day so children learn lots like nursery rhymes, songs, alphabets, phonics and numbers.
