our environment

We’ve said goodbye to the name Dolphins Day Nursery, our identity for over 14 years. From 7th July 2018 we will be known as Inspirations Nurseries and Forest Schools.

At Inspirations Nurseries we put creativity at the heart of our approach to learning, we participate in each child’s explorations and use art and media as a tool to inspire and ignite imagination. We love and respect nature and the outdoors and take a holistic view of each individual.


Horsforth is idyllic, offering outstanding outdoor learning opportunities.  It’s fantastic play spaces include:  nature reserve, yurt, outdoor classroom, art studio and fire pit.  Our woodland is a two-minute walk away!
