Welcome to the Springwood Nursery website. Here we would like to tell you a little bit about us.
Springwood opened its doors in 1945 as one of the first day nurseries in Leeds. It remained in the same hands for some 40 years, and after two further proprietors we bought the nursery in 1998. After training together and completing our NNEB in 1984 we both enjoyed a varied career in the early years sector and social services. 1998 was the start of what has continued to be an exhilarating journey.
Our purpose is to create a home from home; a safe, secure and happy place where the love, care and nurturing that the children receive is central to all that we do.
Each and every child is valued as a unique individual. They are cared for by a team of very special practitioners who are warm, loving and responsive to each child’s needs, feelings and interests. At Springwood, children feel safe and secure, which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of their ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning abilities, differing ability or gender – as set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Quality childcare has been – and still is – a lifelong passion for both of us. Our commitment and enthusiasm for Springwood is as focused today as the day we opened.
We remain actively involved in our relationships with the children, their parents and carers, the day-to-day running and the ongoing development of the nursery and the service we provide.
We thank you for visiting our website. If you have any further queries about the nursery or our service please get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Lesley Watson and Sarah Hanlon
