Happy Kids Clifton, Rotherham, is conveniently located near town centre, opposite the Rugby Club, which offers easy access to Rotherham hospitals and businesses near the town centre.

Offering high quality early education and childcare for babies through to 5 year olds.

Inside, you will find a homely “hygge” environment where children settle easily and feel comfortable in the beautiful environment full of outstanding resources that will engage and challenge your child.

Our cosy baby room has a real home from home feel where your baby can settle and develop at their own pace.  Babies have their own private outdoor garden full of age appropriate resources as well as access to the nursery outdoor area.  From here their journey continues through to toddler and preschool, developing their love of learning and gaining all the personal and development skills needed for starting school.

We are fortunate to be located right next door to Clifton Park and museum, one of South Yorkshire’s greatest area of natural beauty.  Children are taken on regular visits to the park and museum.  We also have our own outdoor area, which is fully equipped with outstanding natural resources and equipment to cover all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Forest School activities are part of our curriculum at Happy Kids and are provided to all children with no extra charge.  Many studies show how learning outdoors can help strong academic outcomes and children’s happiness.
