We originally opened our 'Riverside' setting in 2009, running from part of Yarborough Academy.
In February 2016 we moved into our very own building on Yarrow Road in Grimsby, just a short walk from the original site. We continue to work closely with the academy and the Family Hub.
Opening from 7.30am until 6pm Monday to Friday, Riverside offers full day care, all year round to children from 6 weeks to school age with a Breakfast and After School Club for school age children.
The setting has a well-qualified and passionate staff team who strive for the very best for each and every child who attends the Nursery. You can find out more about how we plan and monitor children's progress in the EYFS section of the site.
We offer 3 separate rooms (Caterpillar, Ladybirds and Bumble Bees) to cater for the children's needs, each offers specifically tailored experiences and activities to engage and support the children during their time with us. More information can be found about each room by clicking the sections on the left-hand side of the screen.
In 2018 Ofsted graded us as GOOD and said...
"Staff are very attentive to the individual needs of the children and offer an abundance of encouragement and praise. Children develop a strong sense of belonging and ownership within the setting"
"The well-qualified staff team supports children's communication and listening skills successfully"
"Staff use their observations and assessments of children's learning effectively. They have a good understanding of what children already know and can do and what they need to learn next"
"Children are very happy at the nursery and benefit from a strong sense of community. The learning environment is rich and stimulating. For example, children benefit greatly from the inviting outdoor area, where they learn about planting, growing, and the natural world, and develop excellent physical skills"
"Children's interaction with staff show they feel safe. They go to them for reassurance and comfort when they feel tired or upset"
"This wide range of skills contributes to children being well prepared for their future learning"
