Barwick Day Care

Barwick-in-Elmet, Leeds


Barwick Day Care offers childcare on domestic premises in the leafy suburb of Barwick-in-Elmet, Leeds, West Yorkshire. We have taken the good elements from both a nursery and childminder and made a hybrid of the two.

Between us, we have over 40 plus years of experience with our staff qualifications ranging from Level 3 to 6.

We offer a flexible approach for working parents offering either a full or half day at the setting, we work 51 weeks of the year.

Our main priority is to provide a safe and stimulating environment making sure that your child / children have fun while having a great learning experience whilst in our care.

We offer a dedicated room that is set up for children in the early year’s foundation to cover all 7 early learning goals throughout the EYFS. We track and observe your children’s development within a journal that is available to you as a parent at all times. This is part of Ofsted requirements but we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to encourage your child /children to grow in both confidence and ability.
Through both planned activities and free play we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

Our main priority is to provide a safe and stimulating environment making sure that your child / children have fun while having a great learning experience whilst in our care.

Our Setting


Baby room – 0 to 2 years old

Our purpose built baby room has been built to give our younger children space and opportunity to explore and learn in their own unique way. This room is managed by level 3 qualified members of staff. We have kept the homely touch and filled it with softer, more suitable, toys for children under two to create a quieter and more relaxed environment.
There are no more than 6 children in the baby room we pride ourselves on our low ratios.
Our Preschool room accommodates children aged 2-5 years, we have extremely experienced staff that take lead in making sure that all age groups are given the opportunity to progress and learn, Emma is a Level 3 Nursery Nurse and takes the lead role in caring for the 2-3 year olds and Chloe is a Level 6 pre school teacher who takes the lead role in getting all our children ready for school. A topic/theme is chosen and activities are planned around it. Each day is varied in activities and is planned out with the children’s interest’s and exiting learning experiences in mind. We have different table to activities. messy play and crafts each day which link to the EYFS areas of learning to allow them to learn whilst freely playing e.g. Drawing, Kitchen area, reading, dressing up etc. There are no more than 12 children in our preschool room.
