Welcome to Station House Children's Day Nursery!
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. We aim to welcome you, inform you and show you how much fun we have at nursery as we learn through play!
Station House Nursery is a happy, bustling nursery based in the Old Station Masters' house. We are situated on the edge of Dunnington (York) "one of the best places to bring up a family" as ranked by 'Family Investments: Oct 2013'.
Station House was established in 2005 with only 4 children on the books. Now, we are a thriving nursery with over 100 children who love to come to play, learn and develop close friendships with both their peers and their practitioners.
At Station House Nursery we place a high emphasis on the holistic well-being of the child. Our practitioners recognise that each individual child needs to feel safe and secure for them to achieve their full potential. Therefore we believe it is vital that strong and unique relationships are formed between each child, their family and their Key Person within the setting.
Station House Nursery was opened by the proprietors, Helen Gibson and Iain Graham. Here is a personal message from them:
Helen: "Being a nursery nurse for 18 years and managing nurseries during that period was something I loved to do. Starting our own seemed the natural step on my career ladder. Opening the doors to Station House in 2005 is something of a blur, but we managed it! Love and determination was poured into every second during the renovation of our fabulous space and continues to be to this day. With myself as the Nursery Manager I am here every day working full time in the nursery. It is a priority to us, the children, their families and the staff who work here to be the best in all that we do and to make an impact on each child's early years. We have always offered affordable quality childcare, allowing parents/carers the flexibility to fit around their own requirements. The staff we have within the nursery are dedicated and passionate in what they do and we couldn't do it without them. Many of our practitioners have been part of our team from the beginning which is something very special and treasured. We are very proud of what we have achieved so far and have many aspirations for the future.
Station House Nursery is not a place of hierarchy and business, we are a place of genuine passion and love to work with children, supporting them in the most important years of their lives.
We're here to be that difference"
Here's a sneaky peak!
