“My son has been attending Farfield for almost a year and he absolutely loves it. He looks forward to seeing his little buddies and is adoring his teachers. The staff are very friendly and approachable and are always patient with the children. My son deserves the best and I feel that’s what he’s getting. It’s a very happy and fun place for little ones.” –Hana
Farfield Nursery is a Private Day Nursery in Saltaire which cares for children from 3 months to 5 years. We offer a genuinely caring environment for children. We are supportive. We are flexible. We are different. We know we are – and so do our children and their parents.
We like fresh air and blue sky – we enjoy playing in three outside areas with slides, ride-on cars and a range of outdoor toys. We like our mealtimes – our food is freshly cooked on premises, and provides a minimum of three portions of fruit and vegetables daily. We like to have a rest – we have a quiet and cosy area, so that everyone who’s tired can have a nap. We like to have fun – we read books, we paint, we build and we play with water. Then we write down all the great moments to be proud of, and stories to remember, in children’s development records.
Most of our children come to the nursery because Farfield was recommended to them by a friend. But if you need an official opinion from a reputable organisation – check our Ofsted report, which also recognises our commitment to the highest standards.

The Baby Rooms
We have two Baby Rooms for babies from 3 months to 2 years. The rooms are bright and cheerful, with plenty of shiny and colourful things to look at. Meals are freshly cooked by our cook and eaten in the room. Special dietary requirements are catered for.
We structure the day in a way that gives time and space for babies to play with the toys, to listen to the music, to learn about interesting colours, shapes and sounds, to sleep, eat and drink. When old enough, children play with water, and start to paint and print.
The Toddler Room
The Toddler Room cares for children between 2 and 3 years. This purpose-built room caters for up to 14 children and is situated next to the bathroom for easy access to potty training and hand washing. The informal atmosphere allows the children to explore a wide range of activities at their own pace, including sand and water play, paint and glue, drawing and role play. Children in the Toddler Room enjoy story telling, and they like to sing and dance.
During lunchtime children are encouraged to eat varied and healthy diet and learn table etiquette and good manners.
The Big Room
The Big Room is a large, bright and cheerful area that accommodates up to 30 children aged 3 to 5 years. It is divided into different play spaces including areas for construction, role play and fancy dress, books and reading, and an area for ‘messy play’ with paint, glue, sand and water.
Children get involved in pre-school activities, such as phonics, writing and recognising shapes and numbers, to help them prepare for school. Our activities in the Big Room follow the early learning goals outlined for the foundation stage by the government for children 3-5 years.
