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.
