The Old School House


@ Sancton

An Outstanding Rated Nursery in the East Riding of Yorkshire


Welcome to Our Nursery

The Old School House Nursery opened in August 2000 in the old village school in Sancton after its owner and Director Sally had searched endlessly for a place to set down roots for her Business.

We are the first private day nursery to start providing childcare in the Market Weighton area and so our journey began......

We are a family-run business that reacts quickly to local needs, but more importantly, can respond personally to the families that we serve. Sally, our owner and manager, has over 34 years childcare experience and leads and supports her team so they can be the very best they can be . 

Many of our team have worked with us since we opened offering Outstanding continuity to the care we give.

We are continuing to lead the way in both education and employment and are so proud of all we have achieved over the years. We have cared and educated hundred's of children, many of which still pop back to visit years later and have made many special friendships with the families who join us.

These Early Years at The Old School House Nursery really are the best!

We are part of a delightful community and have developed an excellent local reputation, gaining two consecutive Outstanding ratings with Ofsted in 2010 and 2016.

We genuinely want our nursery to be the best and we want nursery experiences to be memorable and fun. Over many years here at The Old School House, managers and practitioners have been working together to embed an inspiring approach to supporting young children’s learning and development.  

We are inspired by a number of educational approaches that enable us to enrich our daily experiences with the children in our nursery.  The team strive towards these same principles, connecting with their philosophy in planning and the organising the environment. We encourage the development of their confidence and independence alongside care and respect for others. 

We welcome and value all children at The Old School House irrespective of their ability, religion, race, gender or cultural heritage, and encourage them all to fulfil their potential physically, mentally, academically and socially.

Here at The Old School House Nursery we recognise that a professional and committed team of parents and staff are the essential for happy children; therefore we value the skills and ideas that each person brings to us.Together we can nurture happy and confident children who enjoy living in a culture that values the importance of a happy childhood and gives children the opportunity to maximise their full potential.

So take a browse around our website and then call us to arrange a visit  - We are waiting to show your around!
