Safehands Nursery at Colne caters for children aged from birth to five years old. We are open for 51 weeks of the year with the exception of bank holidays. We are centrally located within a 5-minute walk of the town centre and a 10-minute walk from the train station. We are very fortunate to have close links with the local children’s centre where we are able to use their baby sensory room each week and enjoy visiting the local library.

We have four playrooms within our nursery all situated on the ground floor. We have two large rooms —one for our baby room, which caters for children aged from birth to two years old, and one for children aged two years–preschool. We have a large conservatory where children can spend time in a quieter environment to enhance their skills with their key person and peers. We also have a smaller room that is used for quieter times such as sleep/rest, reading stories and sensory exploration.

We have a highly qualified and dedicated staff team, who are committed to professional development, through in-house and external training. We are very lucky that our staff team have a significant number of years’ experience working with children in the early years age groups.

Each child is allocated a key person who will ensure your child is settled, stimulated and challenged whilst in the nursery environment, they are responsible for your child’s learning journey and will work closely alongside you to plan effective next steps to ensure your child is reaching his/her full potential.

We have a safe outdoor area for all children to access. We love teaching the children how to grow plants and fresh fruit and vegetables as well as learning about the world around us. We love going out in all-weather come rain or shine as we understand the importance of outdoor play and enhancing the children’s imagination and physical skills.

We have a green ethos within our nursery, encouraging children to recycle and grow fruit and vegetables, which are used as part of our daily meals. We value parents’ input into our nursery and our nursery cook will work with you when planning our summer and winter menus.
