Happy children, growing and learning together, is what Broomhall Nursery has excelled
in since we opened in 1930. The oldest nursery in Sheffield, we are one of only two
stand alone nursery schools in the City funded by the Local Authority. Staffed exclusively
by teachers educated to degree standard and level 3 qualified early years practitioners,
the children here enjoy a learning through play experience that Ofsted describe as
Most of our committed and skilled staff team have been with us for many years, which
is testament to the friendly, happy and engaging environment at Broomhall. We pride
ourselves in providing a safe, supportive, creative and joyful environment in which
your child can explore and discover the world. Individual and group achievements
are celebrated and respect and care for all are unrivalled.
Some of our families have been with us for four generations with parents wanting
their children to share the happy times and first class learning opportunities they
themselves enjoyed at Broomhall.
Our Nursery School occupies a large and once grand house set in beautiful, extensive
walled gardens on the edge of the City Centre. It’s a great environment for children
to explore and enjoy with equipment to climb and balance; a large sandpit in which
to dig and build; places to hide, seek, scoot, pedal and drive; raised beds in which
to plant, tend and grow and mature trees for shade and dappled sunlight.
We are often able to offer children a place at Broomhall immediately. You can download
an application form here or you can call us to arrange a visit to look around.
To celebrate our 80th Anniversary in 2011, a team of parents created a commemorative

the ages. Click here to download a copy of The 80th Anniversary Broomhall Times.
