Midland Road Nursery School is situated off Thorncliffe Road, Manningham, near the Bradford City Football Ground at Valley Parade and there has been a school on this site for over 100 years.
We work as an integrated Nursery School and provide a range of services for young children and their families.
As in Primary Schools, Nursery Schools are led by qualified headteachers and teachers working with other qualified early years’ practitioners and support workers. We are specialists in early education and development for children up to to 5 years which we feel provides a strong foundation for all of our work.
Bradford has a long tradition of supporting Nursery Schools and provision for children in the early years. Margaret McMillan, who was an early pioneer of Nursery Schools in Britain, was on the Board of Bradford Schools at the turn of the 1900’s and was also instrumental in introducing free school meals for poor children. In our archives we have the log books which provide a record of her visits to our school and the work being done here. Take a look at these entries to see how long Midland Road has been making a difference to the children and families of Manningham and also how some things have not changed!
