The Barn Childcare - Day Nursery

The Barn Childcare operates within the Elmwood Community Centre in Hartburn providing high quality childcare from birth.

The setting consists of 3 spacious rooms full of high quality 'natural' resources.

In addition to this is a secure garden complete with a mini-beasts motel, sheltered sandpit, mud kitchen, musical corner, chill-out/reading tents, a fairy garden and a whole host of outdoor activities.

The Barn is owned and managed by a highly qualified practitioner with over 20 years’ experience in childcare supported by 14 additional members of staff. Children are able to participate in yoga, rhyme time, first aid, football and sign language all included in the price. We follow the Scandinavian ethos of forest schooling so the children spend most of their time outdoors in the fresh air.

‘The Barn’ offers a unique experience with outstanding facilities and staff, focusing on child initiated learning. 'The Barn' caters for children aged 0 – 8 from the surrounding villages such as Hartburn, Fairfield, Hardwick, Long Newton, Elton, Middleton St George, Eaglescliffe and Yarm.

We have an open door policy for viewing but please avoid school run times to enable us to give you our full attention...
