Meadows

Meadows Nursery is the result of a unique partnership involving Sheffield Hallam University, Watercliffe Meadow Primary School, Sheffield City Council and Save the Children UK. The partnership aims to improve outcomes for children in the local area, helping them achieve their potential through research and innovation in early years education and care.

The nursery is believed to be the first of its kind in the country, offering excellent nursery provision for up to 40 children aged 2 to 4 in the North of Sheffield.
