This summer we will be celebrating 25 years of outstanding childcare! With four nurseries in the Huddersfield area, we have continually strived to provide local families with the highest standard of early years care and education for generations and have truly become part of the community. Owners Rosemary and Michael Murphy both qualified teachers opened their first nursery Portland House in September 1991 followed in later years by Harlequin Nursery, Holly Bank Nursery and Oakwood House Nursery and Forest School. This remarkable ‘quarter of a century’ milestone will be celebrated alongside recently reaffirmed Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ inspection results for both Portland House and Harlequin Nursery. To mark the occasion and to reflect our strong focus on outdoor play, where children are encouraged to investigate and explore in the natural world, the children and staff at Portland House will be creating a time capsule to bury in the garden and planting a tree to mark the spot! We are also extending the celebrations to new parents by offering 25% off your first month’s fees for any new children joining us in September 2016. If you’d like to visit the nurseries, their extensive gardens and woodlands and meet some of the team, Portland House, Lindley will be having an open day on Saturday 11th June 2016 from 10am-2pm. Please contact any of our sites for further information or to come and have a look around!
