Batford Early Years Centre

Batford Early Years Centre is led by Batford Nursery School, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.  The Nursery School provides ‘Outstanding’ wrap around care, full day care and education for three and four year old children in addition to sessional care and education for two year old children, through Skylarks Day Care.  In April 2015 the Nursery School became the lead agency for a further two Children’s Centres, at Wheathampstead and Redbourn and Villages,  adding to the ‘Outstanding’ centres already under its leadership, at Harpenden and Southdown,  The Nursery School, Day Care and Children’s Centres all work very closely together under the leadership and governance of the school, aiming to offer the very highest quality early years provision and support for families in our community.  We are very proud of the recognition given by Ofsted in awarding us ‘Outstanding’ status across all departments, yet we constantly strive for further improvement.

We believe that Batford Early Years Centre and its associated services are exceptional and offer outstanding services provided by highly qualified, dedicated, experienced and caring staff.
