A KEIGHLEY nursery has been rated among the top 20 in the region.

The ranking, by daynurseries.co.uk, is based on reviews by the children’s families and carers.

Cavendish Lodge Day Nursery, in Back Cavendish Street, said it was “ecstatic” to receive the accolade.

“We want to thank all our parents/carers for their support and encouragement,” said manager Stephanie Porter.

“Cavendish Lodge strives to provide a safe, stimulating environment, where children can learn and develop.

“The staff all deserve a pat on the back for their dedication, commitment and hard work in making parents/carers and children feel a part of our nursery family.”

Nurseries are rated on factors ranging from overall standards and facilities to food and nutrition, management and value for money.

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of daynurseries.co.uk, said: “We would like to congratulate Cavendish Lodge Day Nursery on being rated by parents as a top nursery in Yorkshire & the Humber.

“Being chosen as one of the best nurseries by family and carers of children that attend the setting is a huge achievement.

“Reviews show these settings offer children stimulating and nurturing environments.”
