            The Purple House Nursery is part of Preston Road Women's Centre and underpins its services. We are a small, friendly and homely nursery where your children can have fun, learn and play in a safe and nurturing environment.

            Our experienced nursery practitioners are qualified and dedicated but above all have a genuine passion for working with young children.

            We provide high quality care and early learning for children by filling their days with fun activities, lots of laughter, singing, making friends and choosing how and when they play and learn. Our activities are planned and evaluated using The Early Years Foundation Stage.

            Their “Education" is provided in such a unique way that the children don’t realise they are "Learning", they are too busy having “fun”.

            We are sponsored by BBC Children In Need and take immense pride in being able to offer a safe and supportive environment to vulnerable children experiencing crisis. Our specialist nursery practitioners plan "Therapeutic" or "Talking and Playing" sessions which enable children to recover from, or at least improve some of the effects of exposure to family crisis.

            We also offer a crèche service to women accessing the centre’s training courses and services (this is subject to funding). We offer a limited number of nursery funded places to 2 year olds.

            We are registered with Ofsted to provide care and early learning for a maximum of 18 children. This small number ensures our children receive one to one attention and soon become part of our unique little family at Purple House. We work closely with parents and professionals to ensure we build positive relationships which naturally enhance the children's learning and development.

            In our latest Ofsted Inspection in February 2015 we achieved GOOD” overall, with 2 GOOD and 1 OUTSTANDING, narrowly missing out on outstanding overall!!

            This is a fantastic achievement for a small not for profit nursery and is testament to the nursery staff who work tirelessly to improve outcomes for all children. In 2011 we achieved Steps to Quality Award “Step One”.

            We have 2 rooms and an outdoor play area for your little ones to enjoy and explore.

              Our History

              In December 1999 a group of women got together to put a bid forward for some funding for the women of Preston Road Estate. This project became known as WINNER which stands for: Women Improving Now Not Ever Retreating. The bid was successful and delivered evidence based research to prove the need for a women-only space on Preston Road.

              Whilst the research was happening, women were invited to come along to drop-ins to socialise and make their views known. By January 2000, Women were accessing WINNER regularly and were asking for activities and courses.

              Later on that year, Preston Road Neighbourhood Development Company came into being and received £55 million to regenerate the Preston Road area.

              The research undertaken by Winner formed the basis of a successful bid to launch a women’s project for the estate and at this point the services began to take shape.

              First to appear was a range of accredited courses for women, closely followed by a specialist domestic violence and abuse service, a specialist sexual health service and then an outreach support service, helping women isolated in their own homes.

              The one room which originally housed these services soon became far too small and work began to identify suitable larger premises. Hull City Council kindly gifted two properties on the front of Preston Road which were remodeled and repainted in Women’s Suffrage colours (green, purple and white) to create Preston Road Women’s Centre, which opened in January 2002.

              In February 2004, the centre became a company limited by guarantee and in November of the same year was registered as a charity.

              As a successful independent offshoot of the Preston Road Regeneration programme, the organisation formed partnerships with other delivery organisations and funders to offer facilities and services according to local women’s expressed needs.

              In the last ten years, many thousands of women have benefitted from the courses, services, support and safety offered by the women’s centre and have gone on to achieve great things. It is the determination and dedication of women in those early days, overcoming many barriers and obstacles, that has enabled local women to benefit for more than a decade.

              Winner, the Preston Road Women’s Centre is led and owned by the women of Preston Road. It continues to go from strength to strength, despite the current challenging economic climate, as a result of the vision, compassion and commitment of all the women involved.

              Over the years, we have also participated in a number of research projects, including those listed below

              Breakthrough research – in conjunction with Hull University and  Hull Women’s Network Ltd

              Breakthrough Research document 4

              Breakthrough Research document 5

              The aim of the ‘Breakthrough’ Research Project was to explore women’s life histories and experiences specifically in relation to education and employment trajectories throughout the Yorkshire and Humber Region. The project ran from April 2006 until December 2007 and was funded by the European Social Fund, The Learning and Skills Council and Hull Women’s Network.

              Although it is generally acknowledged that women face barriers and challenges leading to inequalities at all levels in our society, the underlying causes of these are more difficult to agree upon. This research provides a qualitative focus on women’s voices and experiences, contributing to the future planning, policy and delivery of services for women in the region.
