Clifton Day Nursery

5 Sutton Way, York YO30 6JF, UK – 01904 674000

My daughter has attended Clifton Day Nursery since she was 9 months old and she has thrived in the small caring nursery. We often comment that it is like her second home and she is so happy and content there. There is a real sense of love and care and the team strive to help the children play and learn. The large secure garden is brilliant and messy, natural play is positively encouraged. The early years foundation is covered effectively but this is balanced well with time to play and be a child. If you want a small and relaxed environment for your child to grow into a happy and confident person then this is the place.

Such a lovely nursery, both our children have gone here and flourished. Even after moving to the other side of York, we still continue to use this nursery. A more loving, caring and personal nursery you will not find. Clifton Day Nursery really deserves to be recognised for the work they do. They are Fantastic!!

Knavesmire Primary School

Trafalgar St, York YO23 1HY, UK – 01904 554445

I would certainly get my children into Knavesmire Primary School. Voted best Primary School in York, it has fantastic sports facilities and great teachers. Built in WWI the school includes a Library, a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area), a big hall, separate classrooms for years 1,2,3,4,5,6 and Morning and afternoon Nursery not forgetting Reception, a huge playground and Zonepark. Zonepark is a class such as years 4, 5 or 6 being put into groups and looking after the equipment in the playground. There is a separate playground for Reception and Nursery which makes playtimes more fun. There are 3 playtimes for the children to enjoy. School starts at 10 to 9 and all pupils must be in the classroom by 9. The first playtime is after assembly (only on certain days) around 10:35 the playtime finishes at 11:00. Lunch is at 12:00 and years Reception, 1 and 2 enter the canteen first with there packed lunches. All hot dinners (all years) will got to the canteen as-well and have there dinners. At 12:15 year 3 will go in and have there lunch but only year 3 because others will still be eating. At 12:30 the rest of the school will have there lunch. The proper playtime will run from 12:00 till 1:10. The last playtime is at 2:15 till 2:30. School finishes at 3:15 fo years 1, 2 and Reception at 3:25 years 3, 4, 5 and 6 finish. I would go and see the school and get my children into it at whatever it takes if I was in your shoes!

Not just a school, but a community. From birth (Gentle Beginnings), through the toddler years (Parent & Child Groups), pre-school (Kindergarten) to the Main School (age 6 - 14) York Steiner School offers a nurturing environment and a rounded education. Highly recommended.

Best school ever.

The Minster School

Minster Yard, York YO1 7JB, UK – 0844 939 0000

Please note this a review for the architecture of the building (as it is currently an independent preparatory school); anyway, the Gothic architecture of the building is beautiful.

Best school ever... I will always have the fondest of memories and the largest amount of respect for this school - a great working enviroment with fantastic results and a warm community.
