Our setting

Barwick Day Nursery offers outstanding childcare in the leafy suburb of Barwick-in-Elmet, Leeds, West Yorkshire. We have taken the key elements from both a nursery and childminder to create a dynamic hybrid of the two. At Barwick Day Nursery we pride ourselves on delivering excellent quality childcare to each child in our care offering a “home from home’’ environment where children are encouraged to engage in new experiences and opportunities to learn through play.

Can I just say a massive thank you for sorting the place so quickly and for being understanding throughout the whole process.
I am literally so pleased after the settling in sessions and can’t believe the difference- my child has been in such a happy mood both times he has come home and that just shows what a lovely time he has had. It has made me feel so at ease leaving him and also about going back to work which is such a massive thing after having my child with me constantly since he was born.
The staff have been amazing and made me feel confident with the setting.
Parent Review
My daughter thoroughly enjoys going to Barwick day nursery. She has commented that the food is delicious. She likes the fact that she gets variety with where she plays..... could be at the local park, in the garden or in the new play room. She has got some nice friends there too.

My daughter has been going to Barwick Daycare for the last 2 years and she loves it. Great setting, amazing staff and they keep you fully up to date with progress through both a daily catch up as you collect them, and there is also an app which they use very well to make sure you know what's happening, what they are eating etc while you are at work. Couldn't recommend more.
