Local Community


Education isn’t just limited to the classroom, and we relish the opportunities to get involved with the local community.

Our Nursery School children were proud to host an Art Exhibition recently in Skipton Town Hall, showcasing all of their work from the successful three phase art project. Featuring different mediums such as cardboard, paint, and photography, the exhibition was a big success.

Along with many other schools in the local area, Brougham Street Nursery School belongs to a group of schools known as the CASTLE Alliance. We support each other, share staff training, and access others’ expertise.

We have close links with other schools, and have enjoyed partaking in the recent ENTHUSE project, in partnership with Otley Street Nursery School and The Skipton Girls’ High School. This project was developed to get children involved in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

We join with the other providers on our shared site to provide community events such as Spring Watch and Autumn Watch, offering activities to families based on nature and the natural world. Recent visitors to these events include petting zoos, pet charities, bug-house building, and other fun activities.

Recently we hosted a bonfire party for the children currently in the nursery and their families. This was well attended and the children loved the story teller and the bonfire, with the added excitement of being at nursery in the night time!

At Christmas time we enjoy taking the children to watch the Christmas performances at local primary schools.
