Keighley Community Nursery is a not for profit organisation run by a voluntary management committee.

We are also a registered charity and were originally established in 1997 situated on Marlborough Street, to provide a community nursery that was accessible to all.

We currently offer a 70 place nursery which was opened in our existing location on Braithwaite Grove in 2004. We provide 12 places for children under 2 years old and over 60 places for over two's.

We have set the challenge to all staff, children and parents to raise as much money as they can for Pudsey Bear over the next few weeks and already, ideas are flowing!!

With Pudsey prize bags, mini mudders, bounce-a-thons, sports days and chocolate quizzes.... the competition is on here at KCN!! Babies, Roses Room, Pre school children and our After School Club along with the management and admin team are busy thinking of ways they can not only raise money but finding creative ways of doing so!!

Keep an eye open next time you are in nursery and see whats going on between now and the  17th of November 2017 in all our rooms, get involved if you can and donate as much as you can!

Bring it on everyone!!


Ofsted have updated their logo this month...... we thought this was an excellent opportunity to remind you that we are an Ofsted rated Good setting!! (as if you had any doubt!!??)


Lets go outside!!

The 18th of May was the International Outdoor Classroom Day and everyone at KCN embraced the wonder of outdoor play - despite the changeable weather! We enjoyed picnics, lots of creative and messy activities as well as resting beneath the willow walk and simply listening to the world passing us by!! 

We are already thinking of ideas for next years day, but before then - here's some pictures of the fun we had in 2017!!
