Brambly Hedge Day Nursery in Castleford provides high quality childcare and learning. The nursery is headed by its Director, Susan Wakelin, a fully qualified Early Years Teacher who had over eleven years Primary School based teaching experience before taking over the nursery 15 years ago. Of all the nurseries in Castleford, ours has been established the longest.

The nursery manager is Gina Robertson, who has worked for Brambly Hedge for almost 20 years, Gina is extremely experienced and has exceptional expertise within early years.

The day nursery employs a highly qualified, experienced, friendly team of staff who work enthusiastically to provide childcare with the highest possible standards of care and learning. All our staff members are highly motivated and dedicated and share a common love of children, so you can be reassured that your child will receive all the loving care and attention they need, in a happy and warm environment.

At Brambly Hedge Day Nursery we recognise that continuity is vital for children as they develop and grow and we are proud that we have many long standing staff members, several of whom have been with us for over a decade (and even longer!). Such staff members allow us to provide stability and consistency for our children and friendly, familiar faces for our parents.

All our staff have been through a rigorous selection process, which includes background checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service, (DBS), and reference follow-ups. The majority of staff members are NVQ Level 3 Qualified; we also employ Level 4 and Level 5 staff members.
