The environment at Triangle House Nursery

At Triangle House we have over 20 years of experience of providing the very best in care and education for young children. Children who attend Triangle House are happy, socially confident and curious learners. Within our bright and airy nursery we have different areas, thoughtfully designed to challenge and support children as they grow and learn.

Our OFSTED Outstanding rated team will be with your child every step of the way, celebrating their achievements and providing stimulating and creative play and learning experiences.

Babies (0-14 months)

Our baby room at this Sowerby Bridge nursery provides your child with a warm, nurturing experience from their very first day with us. In the baby room the emphasis is on developing nurturing relationships and providing outstanding care.

Settling in:
Trusting relationships are important for building confidence and so we invest time getting to know your family. In the months leading up to your little one’s first day at Triangle House we welcome you to our twice weekly stay and play mornings where we can begin building those all-important bonds.

Toddlers (14-24 months)

As your baby grows, their needs change. Our toddler environment is specially designed to support and stimulate older babies. Access to a spacious outdoor area with high-quality equipment supports the physical skills that your child is rapidly gaining at this age.

Child-focused activities that put emphasis on creativity and group interactions are part of the day-to-day in this room. Our kind and caring team will instil kindness, respect and good manners in your child and support them to build a positive self-image through praise and encouragement.

Tweenies (2-4 years)

Your child will join the Tweenies at a stage of their young lives where they are gaining independence and building upon their self-belief. Our team recognise the importance of fostering your child’s emerging confidence at this important stage. We will support them to build positive relationships with our team and their peers through shared activities.

Your child will venture out regularly to explore the local area. We have our own forest school where your child will explore nature; playing through the trees and searching for minibeasts!

By the time your child joins the Tweenies they are already their own little being with a truly unique personality. They are now able to express their likes and dislikes and have developed their own playing and learning styles. We provide activities based on children’s individual interests to engage and interest them, which allows learning to happen naturally.

Pre-school (4+ years)

Spread across 5 rooms, spanning the entire top-floor of the nursery, our pre-school provides your child with a vast array of opportunities to express themselves. Two role-play areas, equipped with props and costumes, enable your child to act out their ideas with friends and build skills such as cooperation and collaboration. A large messy-play area allows your child to experiment with a variety of media and the state-of-the-art, interactive computer table encourages the exploration of IT and improves hand-eye coordination.

Pre-school is led by Becky and Lisha, who are both inspirational leaders and have a wealth of experience in early years.  Lisha, Becky and their team of highly qualified and caring educators prepare your child for school by supporting them to be independent and instilling in them a love of learning.

Science, literacy and mathematics feature prominently at Triangle House Pre-school and are taught through playful exploration.

Rachel’s School of Cookery

Each month, Rachel’s school of cookery comes to Triangle House. Your child will adore spending time with our talented chef, Rachel, and creating dishes such as leek and potato soup, salmon and broccoli fishcakes and spinach and sweet potato curry. With Rachel’s skilful tutoring, your child will learn about where their food comes from and how diet contributes to a healthy lifestyle.

Forest School

At Triangle House Pre-school, your child will benefit from regular trips to our Forest School in a beautiful country field in the direct vicinity.

What is Forest School?

Forest school is a back to nature approach to education with an emphasis on the social and emotional aspects of children’s development. It is inspired by the Scandinavian educational model.

What are the benefits of Forest School?

Through regularly spending time in a natural, outdoor environment, your child will build upon their self-esteem and confidence, improve their ability to engage and work together with others and show improved creative skills and emotional resilience. Play based, child-led learning in a natural environment has been proven to have a highly positive impact on children’s cognitive skills and lead to higher academic achievement.
