Abbey Fields Day Nursery

Abbey Fields Day Nursery is conveniently located at Selby Business Park. It is purpose built and located adjacent to the A1041 junction with the Selby Bypass.  

Together with our parents we form a strong partnership that will be a key influence to learning and strong development, which will be vital for confidence building.

Great emphasis is placed on encouraging children to achieve their full learning potential through positive praise. High staff to children ratios ensures every child receives the individual attention they deserve. When your child starts the nursery he or she will be assigned a Key Worker who is responsible for a small group of children within the room. The Key Worker system also provides parents with an assigned worker who they can call on and build a relationship with, thus forming a partnership between home and the nursery.
