"With 20 years of early years teaching under my belt, what I have learnt is that you never really know something until you teach it to someone else, which I'm privileged to do every day!"
My Ohana York is located within the David Lloyd health club on Hull Road. Our nursery offers children a range of wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and have fun.
There are four main rooms within the nursery, each assigned to a different age group.
We also have a fully enclosed outdoor learning area and access to the David Lloyd sports facilities, and we can make use of these throughout the year, so we really do have everything we need to encourage young children to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
Our team of extraordinary people are dedicated to celebrating your child’s individuality and encouraging their curiosity while allowing them to progress at their own pace. It’s all about giving them a great foundation to supercharge their future development.
My Ohana has developed its own exclusive science-based curriculum that has been inspired by the work of some of the greatest minds in education (along with the experience and expertise of our own people) and benchmarked against Development Matters and Birth to 5 Matters. While our daily programmes are always well prepared, our child-led ethos means that any activities end up where the children take them, sparking even more excitement, creativity and conversation.
We believe that we can make the biggest difference to a child’s early development by working hand-in-hand with their parents and carers. Together, we can supercharge their future in school, work and the wider world. After all, our early childhood experiences help to shape most of what makes us ...well, us! We promise to work with you in a caring partnership to nourish every aspect of your little one’s wellbeing, encompassing their minds, bodies and understanding of the world. We call it their wholebeing.
These are offered alongside our three core enrichment programmes: myHappymind, the Nursery Library and Outdoor Learning.
We are lucky to be able to offer many additional sporting activities at My Ohana York because we literally live in a health club! A child’s learning and development benefit from doing physical activity. By adding these extra lessons into our day we give the children exciting experiences that help them to develop physically, socially and emotionally while building the foundations for a future healthy lifestyle. Our pre-schoolers have group ten...
Children are complex characters who learn by processing and making sense of their many different experiences. Their learning is therefore not compartmentalised. In recognition of this, our ethos involves nurturing the child’s ‘wholebeing’, which we see as being made up of three pillars: Mind, Body and World. In practice, this means we work hard to create a learning environment in which the children feel free to explore, think for themselves and express their thoughts (Mind). We lay the groundwork for future healthy lifestyles, using routine and repetition to form good habits (Body). And we help to raise their awareness of different people, places and ways to live (World).More about our ethos
What we value most
Family is a big deal for us – because when it comes to raising and nurturing children, we’re all in this together. You want the best for your child, and so do we. In fact, we can’t think of a more important job than the work we do. So you can be sure we will do all it takes to rise to the challenge, with energy, enthusiasm, clear communications and that all-important teamwork approach.More about our values
We work closely with our caterers to ensure the children in our care eat healthy, well-balanced meals, while accommodating any dietary needs, choices or special requirements. We rotate our menus regularly to make the best use of fresh seasonal ingredients and serve a range of dishes from around the world to introduce the children to new tastes, textures and flavours.Download example menu
