Willow House Nursery was established by a group of parents in 1986, which recognised the need for quality, affordable childcare provision within Huddersfield Town Centre. With the help of a grant from the Urban Regeneration Unit, Willow House was created as a not-for-profit organisation run by a voluntary committee.
Twenty four years later and the ’Old TV Repair Shop’ that was converted into Willow House Nursery is in a desperate state of decay, threatening the closure of Willow House. So the Committee applied to Kirklees Council once again for some funding to rebuild Willow House Nursery and incorporate the Holiday Club. The application was successful.
With the dedication of our Management Committee and help from Kirklees Council, Our New, fully inclusive setting and landscaped garden area were completed 12 months after we relocated to Holy Trinity Church. The staff and Children moved back to Willow House Nursery in February and have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the new facilities.
We would all like to thank the unswerving dedication of our Voluntary Committee and the Loyalty of our Parents and Staff for making the project possible, and to bring Willow House back home.
