The Counting House Nursery

Smithies Moor Lane

Our ‘Birstall’ Nursery located on Smithies Moor Lane was the first in our group when we took ownership in 2006. Since then it has developed into a thriving, well attended and popular nursery with children and parents alike.

Currently registered for 51 children in total, the converted Zion Chapel building has a warm & welcoming feel to it with our provision provided over two floors. Downstairs sees our Over 3’s & Toddler Rooms along with access outside to our outdoor space & garden area. Upstairs leads to our light, airy and very well-resourced Baby Room.

Children in the nursery benefit from playing with a wide range of high quality, well-organised resources. Subsequently, the resources are stored so they are easily accessible to children, to help them develop their independence successfully.

What better to way for children to enjoy outdoor play, come rain or shine, than in the garden at The Counting House. Whether it’s playing in the large two storey Wendy House, driving up & down our purpose made ‘roads’ on their bikes and trikes or digging for worms and serving Mud Pie in the Outdoor Kitchen….there’s something for every child of every age outdoors!

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what other people have said:


“Staff are very attentive and children form warm, trusting relationships with them. This promotes children's emotional well-being and they demonstrate high levels of confidence and self-esteem. All groups of children make good progress during their time in the nursery and are well prepared for the next stage in their learning, including starting school. Children are confident and independent”


Parent review via our Facebook page:

“Our little girl loves coming here. She gets so excited when she sees me get her bag out on nursery days. I never feel worried leaving her because I know she's in good hands and will have a fun filled day!”
