Brougham Street Community Nursery School is a local authority school, which unlike private nurseries which are businesses, means that all staff are employees of North Yorkshire County Council and we are funded and controlled by the local authority.


As a legally constituted school we have a head teacher who is an early years specialist, governing body, delegated budget and at least one teacher with qualified teacher status (QTS) and a qualified QTS teacher as SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator)

Our Provision

Our purpose built facility caters for children aged 3 months to 4 years old, and is split into three dedicated rooms. Our 'Baby Room' is for children from 3 months old - 2 years old. When children turn 2, if they are developmentally ready, they will transition downstairs to our  move to our 'Toddlers room' until the term after their 3rd birthday. Some children may need a little more time in this room, if this is the case, they will stay just that little bit longer. The term after a child turns 3 years old, they move into our Nursery School, where they stay until they start primary school. Each room has an all-weather outdoor space and we are strong believers in the benefits of outdoor learning.

Brougham Street Nursery School is the ONLY maintained nursery school in Skipton to offer childcare provision all year round. We are open for 51 weeks of the year, from 8.00am until 5.30pm.

Parents who are accessing 2 year old funding can also buy additional sessions.
