The Big Owls

The Big Owls Room cares for children aged between 3 and 4 years old as they prepare for the transition to primary school.

Promoting independence and growth
At this age, your child is encouraged to show a sense of pride in their achievements and learn to positively resolve their differences with others. 

Your child will have a dedicated keyworker, who will track their progress so that activities and planned with their developmental needs in mind. The keyworker will work with you to set next steps to help your child reach their full potential.

Stimulating activities
To encourage independence and free choice, your child will enjoy free flow play and can access all equipment and toys throughout the day, under the supervision of our qualified and experienced team.

We provide an excellent variety of stimulating activities, experimenting with many different textures, shapes and colours. Your child will play both inside and outside throughout the day, taking advantage of a large range of outdoor activities.

Preparing for school
Our children feed into a range of primary schools in Birstall and the surrounding areas and we work with them as your child prepares to move. Your child's new teacher may visit the nursery and meet with your child's keyperson to discuss their individual needs, development and progress.

We work closely with the Council, schools and parents to ensure a seamless transition. Our staff are on hand to discuss any concerns that parents might have before their child moves.
