Welcome to our nursery...

At Kindercare Ripon Day Nursery and Preschool, Harrogate we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.

We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Kindercare Ripon, Harrogate is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.

Ripon’s First Choice for Childcare

Kindercare Ripon Day Nursery and preschool enjoys a quiet location, away from main roads and close to residential neighbourhoods. We are a wonderful one-storey, purpose-built nursery with a huge garden space complete with its very open wooded nature trail and forest area.

Situated conveniently on College Business Park we are the childcare of choice in Ripon. We are handily located for the Ripon Bypass (A61), approximately 5 minutes by car and the nearby Ripon town centre and main bus and coach station are also a short 6 minute drive away. For those commuting further afield the A1 (M) can be accessed in approximately 15 minutes.

Our large private car park provides lots of parking spaces for convenient drop-offs ad pick-ups.

The passionate childcare team cares for children from 12 weeks to the age of 5 plus children at our out-of-school clubs.

Fun-Filled Learning Curriculums

The children at Kindercare Ripon are taught in age and stage appropriate rooms according to the EYFS statutory framework. Each age group has the luxury of 2 rooms each so they have lots of space to play and explore.

The manager and passionate childcare team at Kindercare Ripon are committed to providing an individual approach to your child’s nursery education. A stimulating programme of child-led play and learning is designed to maximise the potential of every child, monitored against key developmental milestones.

Depending on the age of your child they’ll get to enjoy a fun and wide range of activities and experiences including messy and sensory play, construction, problem-solving, language and communication skills, role play, baking, rhyme and story time to name but a few.

As they progress through the nursery they will begin to experience a little more structure and routine to prepare them for ‘big school’. Preschool children will develop their reading and writing skills, and build on their understanding of mathematics.

We strive to develop and nurture happy, confident and independent school children, well-prepared for the challenges they’ll meet at school.

Many of our children go on to local schools in the Ripon area including Holy Trinity CE Infant School, Greystone Community Primary School, Moorside Infant School, St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School and Ripon Cathedral CE Primary School.

Ripon’s Best Nursery Garden!

It’s easy to see why Kindercare Ripon Day Nursery and Preschool is famed for the best nursery school garden in the area! Our enormous garden offers lots of space for energetic explorers and is well-resourced with climbing apparatus, mini vehicles, and balance bikes.

Timber picket-style fences separate designated, age-appropriate areas for safe play whatever the weather and we’ve recently undergone extensive improvements to include all-weather activity gazebos, planters and additional sandpits.

We’re particularly proud of our fabulous woodland area, specifically adapted to form a nature trail for the children to explore.

At Kindercare Ripon we develop confidence and independence by offering our children direct access from each room to secure enclosed play areas, This ensures that the children enjoy freedom of movement and a choice of activities inside and out.

Extra-Curricular Activities

We make a variety of additional educational activities available to the children at Kindercare Ripon Nursery. These include Mini Kicks football for 3-4 year olds on a Thursday morning and on Fridays for our out-of-school club children.
