Granary Wharf Nursery

With 27 daycare places, Granary Wharf Nursery offers a home away from home where children settle in quickly and form close friendships with other children and staff. The nursery is suitable for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old.


As well as providing the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, outdoor play is also an important part of our day at Granary Wharf Nursery. Despite the nursery being in the city centre, children still benefit from spending lots of time outdoors. Our large outdoor play area is filled with engaging equipment, perfect for outside playing, learning, and having fun.


The central Leeds location of this nursery means that parents working in Leeds can take comfort in knowing their children are close by and can easily pop in for a quick visit during lunch breaks. The nursery is just a few minutes’ walk from Leeds City Train Station, with close links to all motorway routes.

Our Groups

At Granary Wharf Nursery we offer daycare places for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old.

The playschool is split into age-appropriate rooms, so that all children can fully benefit from the activities and equipment to best suit their age.

Our team of experienced staff members oversee each room and tailor the activities they provide to the ability of the children, ensuring they can learn at their own pace.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:3


This nursery room provides a gentle, calming environment for younger babies and children, who are at this age simply taking in the world around them. Our team offer tactile activities to engage young children and ensure they are feeling happy and at home in the nursery. Older children participate in activities such as singing, reading and daily ‘circle time’ – a great way to make friends and grow social skills.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:4

  Exploration is the focus of this kindergarden room. Children are encouraged to engage with their environment both physically and imaginatively, developing mobility and dexterity. Our team arrange activities such as baking, reading, singing, and crafting all designed to engage and challenge children, building their skills while they have fun.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:8

  At this age children are learning key life skills (including toilet training, feeding themselves and dressing) which we help them to improve. As their independence grows, children are encouraged to do more activities for themselves such as pouring their own drinks and helping to clear away after meals, building their coordination and dexterity. Communication and social skills are improved through group activities, discussions and games and our team help children to empathise and support their peers.
Nursery Practitioner with children at meal times

Children are exposed to foods from all key food groups to establish healthy eating habits they can continue into adulthood.


All meals are freshly prepared each day by our dedicated cooks using local ingredients wherever possible. We cater for any dietary requirements/allergies and serve wholesome meals in accordance with this.

Meals & Diet

Healthy minds, healthy bodies and healthy appetites

We take our responsibility to serve healthy meals very seriously at Granary Wharf Nursery and offer a wide variety of nutritious food every day, as well as healthy snacks.


During mealtimes children learn the importance of a balanced diet and are encouraged to try new things and engage in conversation. We promote self-service, helping children improve decision-making, fine motor skills and dexterity.

Outdoor Play

Children love spending time outdoors and exploring their natural surroundings, so we make sure to venture outside every day.

The outdoor play area here at Granary Wharf Nursery offers a fantastic opportunity for children to keep fit and healthy while facing new challenges.

We have a wide variety of outdoor play equipment on offer to enable children to test their abilities in a safe environment, building their skills and confidence.

Children’s Corner Granary was a huge part of our lives for 4 years and it’s certainly somewhere we won’t forget. From the minute I looked round I knew it was the place for us, it had that warm friendly feeling. The staff are the kindest, most genuine people I have ever met and they truly care for the children. They felt like a second family rather than staff. I left my children there confidently every single day without any worries, I knew they were in good safe hands.

This nursery was the best choice me and my partner did. Honestly they make me want to have another child so she can go to this nursery too (that’s how happy I am with their job)! They are caring, my daughter comes home with different words everyday, she has fun, I feel that she’s safe and that’s something that bothered me with other nurseries... safety. Keep doing this amazing job with our kids ...
