Meet Feature Member Twinkles
Twinkles, with a wealth of experience in the childcare and nursery world, we give you peace of mind that your child's personal well-being and development is building for a better future.
The nurseries provide high quality childcare for children aged six weeks to five years old, creating a home from home, a place where your child can flourish under the care of our experienced, dedicated and passionate Early Years Educators. With a team of over 100 staff, and in excess of 1,000 children and families accessing our settings, Twinkles Nurseries have been recognised as leading childcare providers in the Yorkshire region of the UK.
As a childcare provider, we must meet the criteria of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is defined by the Department for Education. This means following a structure of learning, development and care for children aged up to five years old. We are wholeheartedly committed to the EYFS.
We believe outdoor play to be vital to your child’s development, so at Twinkles we go outside every day, whatever the weather may be doing! There is nothing children love more than running around in the fresh air and that’s why we invest in outdoor areas for all of our nurseries.
Every parent wants their child to make friends and enjoy close, long lasting and genuine relationships. We love watching their friendships with other children flourish, sharing in their joy as they make special bonds with other children, and seeing how their friendships enhance their confidence and social skills. We support our children from babies through to pre-school to help them to develop their social skills and encourage positive behaviour with their peers.
Your child’s development is of paramount importance to us. We would define development into 5 key areas: Physical, social, cognitive, communicative and adaptive skills.
A well balanced and nutritious diet is vital to a child’s development. Here at Twinkles Nurseries our trained cooks prepare fresh, healthy, tasty and nutritious meals for the children daily. Our four weekly menus have been carefully put together, and your children will enjoy tasty home cooking for both dinner and tea. At Twinkles we are able to cater to any dietary requirements that your little one may have, and try to incorporate the wealth of cultures we have at nursery into our meals!
