First Steps Nursery at Froebelian – which was awarded OUTSTANDING in its first ever Ofsted inspection – is a private day nursery, from the prestigious Froebelian School in Horsforth providing nurturing childcare of the highest quality for early years children aged 3 months to 5 years.
Conveniently located in the heart of Horsforth, close to the A65, the Leeds Ring Road and The Froebelian School, we are open from 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, 51 weeks of the year.
The dedicated staff team is handpicked for their passion and experience in early years and our equipment and resources are purposely designed with advice from renowned early years specialists to create an enabling learning environment.
The unique and unprecedented nursery ethos and distinct educational philosophy is driven by Miss Burton who is highly experienced in the early years sector, including time as a fully qualified teacher and OFSTED inspector. All of which is underpinned by the support from the highly renowned Froebelian School.
Adopting the Froebelian School’s aims and traditions of “giving a flying start to the citizens of tomorrow” and providing a thriving and dynamic setting nursery focuses on each child’s individual learning and development ensuring that all our children achieve their full potential and are brimming with confidence ready for when they move on to school.
Our mission is all about “inspiring and enabling young children to reach their true potential through education and play”.
We still follow some of the concepts of Freidrich Froebel the German educator, who created the concept of kindergarten and from whom the school and nursery take their name. His theories were all gained from viewing life through a child’s eye and the idea of “creative play”, something which we continue to carry out today.
