The Psalter Lane Nursery occupies a large Victorian building and gardens within the South West side of the city of Sheffield and is sited in close proximity to the areas of Ecclesall Road South, Hunters Bar and Nether Edge. Founded in 1966 the Psalter Lane Nursery is one of Sheffield’s longest established private nurseries. We provide full day care for a maximum of 48 children between the ages of twelve months and five years.
Our aims for your child are that they are safe, happy, developing and learning. Our emphasis is on ensuring that we lay a strong foundation that will enable your child to leave nursery as a self-confident individual with the ability, readiness, and eagerness to engage in the next steps of their learning.
It is our objective to provide care for all children to a standard of excellence that embraces fundamental principles of good child care practice and that may be witnessed through the practice, conduct and control of quality care and learning within the nursery. We aim to provide a friendly, clean, comfortable and safe environment that the children will find stimulating and challenging and where enjoyment and fun are linked with discovery and learning.
Mature experienced staff are sensitive and responsive to the individual needs of each child and our small groups enable the individuality of each child to flourish.
