"Thank you for all your help, nurturing and love over the last three and a half years."

Parent of child at Heather's Nursery

"Both of my children have been at Heathers since the age of 7 months (practically full time) up to starting school and have very much enjoyed their time with the staff in the setting in general. I recommend York Childcare to everyone and will be very sorry to not have to drop off at Heathers anymore. It has been a very special part of my children growing up and I could not have returned to work in such confidence without the setting and the special care given by all of the staff there, not only supporting and caring for the children but also the parents.

About our Rooms


(Under Two's)

Our baby room is a warm, friendly and very welcoming environment. We pride ourselves on the facilities and resources we are able to offer and have the room set up to provide stimulating and exciting experiences for everyone involved, both inside and out!


We love to display the children’s work around the room along with annotations of how they have enjoyed the activity.


Squirrels & Hedgehogs

(Toddlers & Pre-Schoolers)

The ‘Squirrels’ and ‘Hedgehogs’ room is for children aged 2-5 years. The room is large with an open plan, there is also a separate preschool room for three and four year olds (Hedgehogs). Both rooms have independent access to the outdoor area which can be enjoyed in all weathers.


In Hedgehogs and Squirrels rooms we aim to provide a variety of activities to enable all children to learn and develop, and enjoy their time with us. The room is divided into different areas and has lots of space for children to play and explore. Throughout the day we have singing and story time.


Hedgehogs also enjoy more structured activities during pre school sessions twice a day.
