Privately owned day nursery based in central Halifax

Welcome to Totspot Day Nursery


About us

The nursery opened in 2003 and enjoys a ­reputation for offering high quality, affordable childcare in the centre of Halifax. The nursery has excellent purpose-built indoor and outdoor facilities, enabling children to explore and learn through play. The nursery is built at ground level, giving easy access for all. We aim to help children flourish and grow to their maximum potential by providing a happy, stable and structured atmosphere in the nursery. We recognise that each child is an individual and encourage individuality by allowing children to learn and develop through different aspects of play.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Our nursery has been rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted in all areas of early years provision for our last 3 inspections (our latest inspection was January 2020). We believe this reflects the hard work we put in to providing exceptionally high quality childcare in the town centre of Halifax.

It is important that parents have as much information as possible when choosing a childcare provider. Ofsted’s inspection reports give an impartial view of childcare providers and give information on how well settings are meeting their obligations in terms of delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Ofsted assesses childcare providers on how well they support children’s development according to their individual needs. The assessment is not just about education but also that children’s social and emotional needs are being met. Childcare providers are inspected every three to four years and our inspections are undertaken with no notice. We were graded Outstanding in all areas of early years provision that Ofsted inspect on at our last 3 inspections (our most recent inspection was January 2020).
